American Hysteria

4.0/5

Critic Rating

American Hysteria explores how fantastical thinking has shaped our culture – moral panics, urban legends, hoaxes, crazes, fringe beliefs, and national misunderstandings. Poet-turned-podcaster Chelsey Weber-Smith tells the strangest stories from American history and examines the forces that create the reality we share, and sometimes, the reality we don't.

Gregg Stockdale • The Podcast Geek Aug 6, 2023

"This is a great show. Despite its mostly rather dark subject matter, Chelsey keeps things pretty light-hearted. I don’t think that anyone would be worse off from listening to this brilliantly researched show."
