Why is it that we persecute those who believe differently than we do? Why do neighbors turn on each other? On this episode, I present a brief overview of the history of witch hunts starting with the early Biblical accounts of witches to the hysteria of the European and American witch hunts of the 15th, 16th and 17th centuries and beyond. People were left dead in their wake. This has left spiritual residue leading to hauntings. The Moment in Oddity was suggested by listener Laura Ann Williams and features a death mask becoming model for Annie the CPR Doll and This Month in History features the Jetsons airing for the first time. Special thanks to Deana Marie of the TwistedPhilly Podcast and Jessica Walters of the Shoes, Boos and Tattoos Podcast for their contributions!

Loved this podcast! I just recently discovered your podcasts and now it’s my favorite thing to do all day while working. You should check out the Gibson Inn and combs in Apalachicola, Florida. Not to mention we have the best seafood around! If you ever get around to exploring The Gibson Inn I would LOVE to join! You ladies are awesome!
Hey Curtlyn! So glad to have you listening! We’ve added the Gibson Inn to the list and look forward to checking it out for ourselves and meeting you!
