Did “They” Shut Down TVs on August 29th 1968 | 301

SATAN IS TO BLAME! Either that or maybe just some static in the television line. Or, maybe it's all a lie. We try to dig into those options this week as we talk the supposed August 29th, 1968 TV shut down event all across America. We tackle the hard questions this week like did it happen? Is Conspiracy Bot to blame? Why does David Flora love soap operas? Plus, CBot reminds us that he thinks he is eternal, Max Headroom is of course brought up, and we brain storm better ways to get your Satanic point across. All that and more this week on the podcast that doesn't broadcast messages from the Devil, but we do play ones from a certain robot so there is that, Hysteria 51
