This week, in one of our bi-weekly, shorter episodes, we take a look at the super secret government program popularly known as MK Ultra. One of several clandestine operations generated during the Cold War, this one is notorious for its creepy experiments and conspicuous lack of ethics.
Not a lot is definitively known about the project, supposedly dismantled in the 1970s, but that won’t stop us from talking about it, because the truth is out there.
