  • 35 - Jane Elliott: The Brown Eyes Blue Eyes Exercise

    24/11/2019 Duration: 59min

    On the morning of april 5, 1968, Steven Armstrong stepped into his third-grade classroom in Riceville, Iowa. "Hey, Mrs. Elliott," Steven yelled as he slung his books on his desk. "They shot that King yesterday. Why'd they shoot that King?" All 28 children found their desks, and Elliott said she had a special experiment for them to do, to begin to understand the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. the day before. Now, almost four decades later, Elliott's experiment still matters—to the grown children with whom she experimented, to the people of Riceville, population 840, who all but ran her out of town, and to thousands of people around the world who have also participated in an exercise based on the experiment.  What was this test? What happened to the students who were participants? And why did the surrounding community try to run Mrs Elliott out of town because of the experiment? Learn all this and more as we go over the notes and journals taken during the Eye color experiments today on BRAIN BITEZ. If

  • 34 - Arthur Conan Doyle: The Man Who Killed Sherlock Holmes

    11/11/2019 Duration: 01h22min

    If anyone brings up the name, Arthur Conan Doyle very often Sherlock Holmes come to mind, which is not the way Conan Doyle wished to be known or remembered. Nor does he need to be, because Conan Doyle threw himself into life with a vengeance, and though he remains automatically linked to his famous pipe-smoking detective with the deerstalker hat, there are countless other ways to remember this teller of tales. He actually took on the role of detective to get two innocent men freed and, eventually, succeeded in both cases.  He was also knighted for his volunteering to serve as an unpaid physician in South Africa during the Boer war. Doyle was a doctor by trade, but spent only a few years dedicated to this work. Most of Conan Doyle's life was spent writing, and not only about Sherlock Holmes. Did Doyle truly live the life of an adventurer? Did he really kill someone that he owed a great deal of gratitude towards? After he was knighted and was caught wearing a black trench coat while running around roof tops, wa

  • 33 - The Salem Witch Trials

    27/10/2019 Duration: 01h23min

    In 1692, the Massachusetts Bay Colony executed fourteen women, five men, and two dogs for witchcraft. The sorcery started in January. The first hanging took place in June, the last in September; a stark, stunned silence followed. Although we will never know the exact number of those charged with working in the dark arts. We do know the number was somewhere around 200 witches and wizards who were named in twenty-five villages and towns. The youngest was five; the eldest nearly eighty. Husbands implicated wives; nephews their aunts; daughters their mothers; siblings each other. This is all just the beginning of the ridiculousness that went down in Salem all those years ago. What caused this histeria? Why was it suddenly open season on all accused witches? And if these witches were being hunted why didn’t they just fly away on their nimbus 2000’s and firebults before things escalated to quickly? Well find out all this and more as we look into the dark secrets of Salem, Massachusetts today on Brain Bitez. If you

  • 32 - Slender Man

    12/10/2019 Duration: 01h10min

    The Slender Man is an alleged paranormal figure purported to have been in existence for centuries, covering a large geographic area. Believers in the Slender Man tie his appearances in with many other legends around the world, including; Fear Dubh (or, The Dark Man) in Scotland, the Dutch Takkenmann (Branch Man), and the German legend of Der Grosse Mann (the Tall Man). Even though there are so many stories about him… most still know that the slender man is based in fantasy.  If the stories of his origins are true and this elongated creature is indeed not real… then why has there been so many sightings? Why have there been kids that say they want to follow this imaginated horror to the point that two girls came close to killing in his name? And what the hell does creepy pasta mean? Can I eat it? Do I want to? Kind of hungry. Stay tuned for all this and more as we cover one of the internet’s darkest and most popular characters… today on brain bitez. You can reach us at:

  • 31 - Jack The Ripper and The Murders In Whitechapel

    22/09/2019 Duration: 01h14min

    Someone in London murdered and mutilated a number of prostitutes during the autumn of 1888; the press went into a frenzy, politicians pointed the finger at each other, hoaxers polluted the investigation, and one of several nicknames stuck: Jack the Ripper.  The Ripper's identity has never been established and people have never stopped looking. Unfortunately, the wealth of Ripper source material — letters, reports, diaries, and photographs — provides enough depth for detailed and fascinating research, but too few facts for any incontrovertible conclusions. Just about everything about Jack the Ripper is open to debate and the best you can get is a consensus. People are still finding new suspects or new ways to reframe old suspects, and books are still flying off the shelves. There is no better mystery. its a mystery we are going to tackle as we cover our final topic for our summer Mini Murder Mystery… today on Brain bitez.

  • 30 - H.H. Holmes and His Murder Castle

    08/09/2019 Duration: 01h21min

    Welcome to part 2 in our Mini Summer Murder Series. H.H. Holmes would come to be recognized as one of America's first serial killers. But to this day, because of the nature in which he disposed of the bodies and his wildly inconsistent stories and confessions, much of the facts about his life are unclear. So is his death count: Police at the time suspected around nine or 10 victims, while other estimates are in the hundreds; in his published confession, Holmes himself claimed credit for the deaths of 27 people—but several “victims” were later found to still be alive. To make matters more confusing, Holmes took back his earlier confession while on the gallows and claimed to have killed only two people. Though it's nearly impossible to completely verify them because of Holmes's tall tales—and because he spun them at the height of the era of Yellow Journalism, when nearly everything was hyper-exaggerated—these facts tell the story of his infamous crime spree. So we are going to sift through the facts and fiction

  • 25 - Ted Bundy: The Campus Killer

    30/06/2019 Duration: 01h37min

    Theodore Robert Bundy was an American burglar, kidnapper, rapist, serial killer, necrophile, and all around psychopath who assaulted and murdered numerous young women during the 1970s. Many women regarded him as charismatic and handsome, traits that Bundy exploited to win their trust. He would typically approach them in public places, and the little faker would pretend to be injured or disabled, before overpowering and assaulting them. After more than a decade of denials, he confessed to 30 homicides that he committed in seven states between 1974 and 1978. The true number of victims is still unknown and possibly much higher.

    For several decades a very prominent personality known as “The Voodoo Queen’ held New Orleans spellbound. Marie Laveau staged ceremonies in which participants became possessed by Voodoo spirits; she dispensed charms and potions, told fortunes, and even healed the sick. Marie Laveau had an extremely complex reputation in later life. Although a local newspaper once referred to her as “the notorious hag who reigns over the ignorant and superstitious as the Queen of the Voodoos”, she was also feared for her power with numerous stories about the things that “happened” to anyone who offended her. While at the same time, she was regarded by many admirers as a living saint due to her humanitarian work. How does one person acquire such power? Is voodoo real? If so what the hell is it? And the big question… what’s with all the dolls? Well prepare yourself as we cover the most southernist and voodooiest topic yet today on BRAIN BITEZ.

  • 22 - The Lobotomy: The Medical Worlds Great Mistake

    19/05/2019 Duration: 01h08min

    If you thought that scene in Sucker Punch where the doctor gave lobotomies with an ice pick was artistic exaggeration – well, you’d be wrong mi amigo. That's exactly how Walter Freeman, a specialist of lobotomies in the 1940s, performed thousands of operations. The lobotomy was considered to be such a popular "cure" for mental illness that Freeman would perform up to 25 lobotomies a day, using only an ice pick-shaped instrument and hammer, without anaesthesia, while reporters would watch. Freeman's crazy antics didn't scare off potential patients either. While some were being forced against their will to take the procedure many were begging for the chance. How did the lobotomy ever become an accepted medical practice? Find out as we go under the knife or should I say pic and get our brains a little scrambled today on Brain Bitez.
