Strange and Interesting ep 4: The Satanic Panic

October 2, 2022 @ 9:10 am

Remember when everything you enjoyed was part of a vast Satanic plot?

Al remembers.

In this episode Al discusses the Satanic Panic, a time in the 80s when parents' groups, televangelists, and media personalities claimed that Dungeons & Dragons, heavy metal music, horror movies, and pretty much anything else the kids were into would make them drug addicted, devil worshiping, mass murders.

CORRECTION: I accidentally referred to It's The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown as It's A Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown.
