You are getting very sleepy… Well, wake up! It’s time to talk Hypnosis on H51. From county fairs to courtrooms, the practice of Hypnosis has led men to laughs and to the electric chair. All through focused attention, reduced peripheral awareness, and an enhanced capacity to respond to suggestion. People seek out hypnotists to stop smoking, remember a past life, or forget a tragedy. But, is it safe? Is it regulated? Why do so many law enforcement agencies lean on it? And, why does CBot keep trying it out on David? We tackle those questions and more on the podcast that has never been hypnotized, we think, but we do cluck like a chicken when we hear a bell – Hysteria 51.
