At the height of the Cold War, the entire world was on edge. Desperate times often lead to desperate measures, and during this tense period, the Central Intelligence Agency began a program aimed at testing to see if the human mind could be controlled. They aspired to become “mind hackers,” and the program that resulted was Project MK Ultra, one of the most notorious endeavors ever undertaken by an agency within the U.S. government.
This week, we go in-depth into the history of the program, its operations, and the personalities behind the CIA’s illegal quest to hack the human mind… all this, and more on this edition of The Micah Hanks Program.
