And that’s not all this week podcast fans! We’re also proud to announce a thrilling new iHeartRadio original podcast: “Operation Midnight Climax” from iHeartRadio’s new slate of original podcasts spotlighting curious tales, historical oddities, and stranger-than-fiction stories often left out of History Books. Join host Noel Brown as he details the insane true story of a secret Cold War project as it spins out of control. Hear how George Hunter White operated a CIA brothel in the 1950s with the mission to lure targets to a safe house, dosed with LSD and then observed. The experiment spirals as enemies of the state, strangers on the street and even White’s own friends become unwitting targets—while he convinces himself the fate of the nation hangs in the balance. Listen to the trailer now, and tune into to iHeartRadio for the premiere episode coming soon!
