About this episode

Fasten your seatbelts, folks, because this bonus episode of Hysteria 51 is taking you on a wild ride! First, we're headed to South Africa, where serpents have traded their usual jungle hangouts for a taste of the high life. Forget about Samuel L. Jackson, because we've got the real deal - snakes on a plane! Join David and Brent as they slither through this bizarre tale of airborne reptiles, discussing how these slippery stowaways managed to board a plane and what the pilot did to keep his cool

Then, we're diving into the murky world of treasure hunting, where a tale of Civil War gold turns into a high-stakes game of cat and mouse with the FBI. Did the Bureau steal a fortune in precious bullion from its rightful owners? All that and more this week on Blurry Hysteria!
