This week, we go back to the 1980's to talk about one of the weirdest and saddest episodes in American history: the satanic panic.
So, where were you on October 15, 2009? A big chunk of the world spent a lot of that day glued to their television sets. That’s the day that the ‘Balloon Boy’ story took flight. A watershed moment in American journalism for all the wrong reasons, what happens next is what we’re talking about this week.
In this episode, we discuss the origins of Santa Claus -- the cheeriest lie ever told. Don't listen to it with kids in the room (unless you want to break their hearts / turn them into Odin-worshipping Pagans.)
In this episode, we discuss the origins of (and fallout from) one of the most notorious musical scandals of the 20th century, Milli Vanilli.
