On this episode of Hysteria 51 we look into the history, mystery, and ultimate tragedy of the Heaven's Gate cult. How did a Texas nurse and a college choral director with Broadway dreams become the leaders of the UFO Cult to end all UFO cults? And how did they convince so many unlikely people to join them? Were they really trying to transcend humanity or were they perfectly deranged bedfellows preying on the trust of their followers? We shave our heads, learn the handshakes, and try to get to the bottom of the largest mass suicide to ever take place on American soil. Plus, Conspiracy Bot tries to start a cult with Alexa (he's unsuccessful), in unrelated news Conspiracy Bot also tries to order a 5-gallon drum of Sharkleberry Fin Kool-Aid (it's related).
