    For our 100th episode, American Hysteria host Chelsey Weber-Smith visits our campfire to tell us about the time America was besieged by a killer clown panic ... and then the time it happened all over again. Digressions include Jon Stewart, "The Blair Witch Project" and John Wayne Gacy. Sarah coyly references the Hartford circus fire several times but no one seems to notice.”If you want to skip the 100th-episode stuff, the Clown Content begins around 10:15.Support us: http://patreon.com/yourewrongabouthttp://paypal.me/yourewrongabouthttps://www.teepublic.com/stores/youre-wrong-about?ref_id=10420Links! American Hysteria on the web: https://www.chelseywebersmith.com/americanhysteria& on Instagram: @americanhysteriapodcast & on Twitter: @amerhysteria Chelsey's "Phantom Clowns" episode:https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/american-hysteria/id1441348407https://open.spotify.com/show/4VjkwFSQpgnHwugtqJwSxDSupport the show (http://patreon.com/yourewrongabout)

    Tuskegee Syphilis Study Part 2: The Truth

    1:10:35

    “It’s like these men are being held in a bubble as science marches forward.” Mike tells Sarah how one of history's most unethical experiments came crashing down. Digressions include the history of penicillin, the power of TV movies and the mysterious diagnosis of "Satan's crabs." This episode is happier than the last one, but still contains a lot of racist language and some grisly Nazi examples toward the beginning.

    Tuskegee Syphilis Study Part 1: The Lie

    1:17:36

    Mike tells Sarah about the longest "non-therapeutic" experiment in medical history. Digressions include deep fried ice cream, Kato Kaelin and a hot-yoga cabinet. As a warning, this episode contains long quotes from eugenic memos and detailed descriptions of medical racism. We promise to do a happier episode soon.

    The Stepford Wives

    1:01:18

    Wayfair and Human Trafficking Statistics

    57:22

    In another "mini" episode that accidentally turned mega, Mike tells Sarah about the Wayfair conspiracy theory and the sketchy statistical screenshots that have shown up in its wake. Digressions include "Inside Llewyn Davis," Miranda Priestley and (sigh) Jeffrey Epstein. This episode contains, we're sorry to say, detailed descriptions of child abuse. We recommend listening to this episode alongside our "Human Trafficking" episode from last year, which contains much more context for understanding this issue: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/human-trafficking/id1380008439?i=1000465289965Support us: http://patreon.com/yourewrongabouthttp://paypal.me/yourewrongabouthttps://www.teepublic.com/stores/youre-wrong-about?ref_id=10420Support the show (http://patreon.com/yourewrongabout)

    Disco Demolition Night

    1:37:31

    Murder

    1:00:21

    Mike tells Sarah about the most common forms of violence in America and how they differ (twist!) from what gets shown on TV. Digressions include Perry Mason, “It’s A Wonderful Life” and fruit-toting strategies. Mike appears not to understand the meaning of the term “order of magnitude.” This episode contains descriptions of police violence; the last 15 minutes are just a huge bummer generally.
