In 17th-century Salem Village and Salem Town, women (and men) (and dogs) were accused of making a pact with Satan and signing his black book. The witch trials that followed are a historical spectacle surrounded by misconceptions and our modern interpretation of events. Your hosts Simone, Daniel, Tabitha, and Roman discuss what really went down as well as how the witch trials echoed through the McCarthy Era and the Satanic Panic. Plus, Simone’s “acting skills”, our high school performances of The Crucible, and whether kids today know what the Save icon is.
