Brainwashed

Brainwashed

Brainwashed investigates the CIA?s covert mind control experiments ? from the Cold War and MKULTRA to the so-called War on Terror. It?s the story of how a renowned psychiatrist used his unwitting patients as human guinea pigs at a Montreal hospital, and the ripple effects on survivors, their families, and thousands of other people around the world. It also examines the cultural impact ? how the CIA brought LSD to America and inadvertently created counterculture influencers such as author Ken Kesey and poet Allen Ginsberg. It?s an exploration of what happens in times of fear, when the military and medicine collide. And what happens when the survivors fight back.

Introducing: Evil by Design

More than 80 women from around the world have accused the fast-fashion mogul Peter Nygard of rape, sexual assault, and human trafficking in incidents across four decades and at least four countries. He denies it all, and claims his accusers are lying as part of a vast conspiracy. Nygard had built a sprawling international retail empire over the past 50 years ? but now, his professional achievements are being overshadowed by a sinister personal life, earning him the moniker, ?Canada?s Jeffrey Epstein?. Evil by Design is a new podcast that asks the key questions: Who are the women and men who have stepped forward? Which systems failed them? And how did Nygard get away with it for so long?

Episode 6: NEVER TOO LATE TO SAY SORRY

MKULTRA has entered popular culture, becoming the butt of jokes, television plot points, and the darling of internet conspiracy theorists. At the very least, the secrecy that still surrounds MKULTRA, or the CIA?s post-9/11 programs, sows distrust of governments, and medical professionals. At worst, it gives credence to online conspiracies, like Pizzagate, that end up having real world consequences. Meanwhile, the families of the victims continue to suffer. And continue to fight for justice and recognition.

Episode 5: WE TORTURED SOME FOLKS

MKULTRA was supposed to have ended in the 1960s. The torturous experiments didn?t work. So why did these techniques evolve and continue to be used by American trainers throughout Latin America, and then get revived once again in the era that followed the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks? The CIA?s Black Sites and a courtroom inside the Guantanamo Bay Naval Base may hold some of the answers.

Episode 1: RAVENSCRAG

The Allan Memorial Institute in Montreal was an innovative new hospital where patients sought cutting-edge psychiatric care. But instead of being helped, many were subjected to shockingly brutal experiments: massive doses of LSD or other drugs, electroshocks, and sensory deprivation. How ? and why ? could this be allowed to happen?

Trailer: Brainwashed

Brainwashed is an investigative series into the CIA?s covert experiments in mind control ? from the Cold War and MKULTRA to the so-called War on Terror. Listen to the voices of the survivors and their families, the conscientious objectors and the lawyers and journalists who have fought to have this story come to light. Go into the hospital rooms where psychiatric patients became unwitting guinea pigs for such so-called treatments given Orwellian names like psychic driving and de-patterning. We look at what happens in times of fear, when the military and medicine collide and how without accountability, a torturous cycle continues.
