Mr. Wapojif ,

100 million (💯) % awesome

One of my fave podcasts and happily subscribed and steeped in the knowledge of Satanic panic. YWA is packed with empathy and excellence. Get it or regret it! 🌈

Sarah is a Goddamned Treasure

I’ve been listening since the before days with Michael (who I adore) but I feel like show has really come into its own with Sarah at the helm. Whether we’re around the fire at summer camp, in a closet in Wisconsin, or curled up with some tea I always look forward to reflecting, recontextualising, and interrogating my preconceived notions. 🧡

Love the direction the show has gone

Came for the deep dive debunking, stayed for the social history, loving the more conversational style!
