Operation Highjump: Redux | 276

Operation Highjump: Redux | 276

They say you can't go home again. But they never said you can't go Antarctica in search of secret Nazi bases…again! That's what the fellas are doing this week as they dive in to Operation Highjump…again. H51 started almost 6 years ago examining this bizarre military operation / journey to the Hollow Earth in the first episode, so we thought it high time to look at it again. And don't worry, this isn't reheated leftovers from that old episode - the fellas are back in prime form to take another stab at what Rear Admiral Byrd was up to. Was this all a cover-up so the US could obtain the natural resources Antarctica has to offer?  Were Nazi’s really getting technologies from aliens in the hollow earth? Are altimeters really that important? (Spoiler Alert - YES) Plus, John is back in his hosting chair, C-Bot has 'robot jokes' to share, and the fellas make a special announcement (not THAT kind - this isn't an after-school special.) All of that and more on the podcast that doesn’t always redo the exact same topic from past episodes, but when we do you better believe it’ll involve altimeters - Hysteria 51.
