    S6: Satanic Panic - Trailer

    S6: Satanic Panic - Trailer

    Throughout the 1980s, Satanic cults were widely believed to be preying on children — torturing and terrorizing them as part of dark rituals. Across North America, there were hundreds of false allegations, scores of unjust criminal trials and countless lives torn apart. But never any real proof. By the early 90s, the panic reached the tiny Prairie town of Martensville, Saskatchewan. And nearly 30 years later, the people touched by it all are still picking up the pieces. So what happened? And why do so many still believe to this day?

One of the podcasts of the year!

Season 6 is great. It’s really interesting that you have this amazing story about mass hysteria which so needs to be told - and yet some of the audience responses are focusing on the narration - which by the way I have no problem with at all. Don’t believe the hysteria and the misinformation - this is great journalism.

Listening to season 6

I never write reviews for podcasts but this subject is so important. I am shaking my head constantly as I listen to each episode hearing the horrible things that happened to these falsely accused people. How could this have happened? The people responsible for this injustice deserve severe punishment! Sad, frightening, anger inducing... everybody should know and hear about this story to reduce the chances of it ever happening again.

Narration on season 4 is off

The story is compelling but it’s very irritating the way the narrator is speaking. Please re record this season with narrator from season 5 . I’m actually getting anxiety about the whispering. I’m hoping it gets better 😳
