Flapjacks from Outer Space: The Joe Simonton Encounter | 364

Season 15 | Episode 364
1h 22m | Mar 6, 2024

Picture this: a quiet morning in 1961, Eagle River, Wisconsin, when Joe, a humble plumber and chicken farmer on the side, witnesses a shiny saucer land in his yard. Out steps beings from beyond, not with laser guns or cryptic messages, but with a craving for water and an offer of pancakes cooked on a flameless griddle. This story has it all: interstellar diplomacy over breakfast, a government analysis of cosmic cuisine, and the enduring mystery of why aliens might traverse the vastness of space to share their version of our morning favorites. Buckle up as we dive into one of the most appetizing alien encounters in history, serving up a story so strange it just might be true. PLUS- We finally find out what Conspiracy Bot's C.H.U.D. does, and it brings with it some old "friends" of the show. So, get ready to be whisked away on an adventure that's out of this world on Hysteria 51!
