    Episode 133 - The Devil's Advocate

    “It’s my time now," Satan declares in the 1997 horror/drama Hollywood hit The Devil’s Advocate, starring Al Pacino as the original boss from Hell. Now, at the film’s 25th anniversary, has his time passed -– or has this become a truly timeless work?

    Episode 132 - Satanic Pride

    Pride comes before the fall -- and since it’s already November, that means we’re already late! But as Modern Satanists, what does pride, in all of its myriad forms, mean to us, and how can we celebrate it most meaningfully?

    Episode 131 - Fortune Telling & the Devil

    For as long as humans have believed in mysticism we’ve been eager to know what the future holds, but modern religions are always hot to deal fortune telling to the devil. To help us learn more about why everyone is so afraid of making a psychic connection, we’re joined by Shiva Honey.

    Satanic Bay Area has our very own Satanic ‘Chick’ Tract celebrating the real history of Halloween, but the actual Jack Chick spent decades hatching fabrications about our favorite holiday.

    Episode 128 - The Dragon Episode

    In past episodes we’ve added such creatures as goats, cats, and everyday snakes to our Mephistophelean menagerie, but today… Here there be dragons. We’re making the biggest addition ever – in more ways than one. We explore the history of devilish dragons and why these mythical monsters are so often associated with Satan.

🖤Amazing Podcast!🖤

Thank you so much for being the amazing people you are. I’ve felt so alone in Satanism, not being a part of any satanic groups because I never 100% felt like I belonged. This is mainly because as a BIPOC woman, AND part of the LGBTQ community, I’ve felt like an outcast among outcasts. But this feels like home, I feel understood and seen. I’ve also learned that I’m not alone in my identity. Thank you for being informative and wholesome, Hail Thyself.

Great podcast, interesting subjects!

Hey I like your podcast!!

Would you mind putting time stamps for when the podcast actually starts? I usually skip the beginning chatter/randomness and a time stamp for when the podcast subject actually starts would be fantastic!

Satanists are the sweetest, nicest people!

I’ve listened to this podcast for a long while now, and contrary to what the uninitiated might believe, these Satanists (of the Satanic Temple variety) are the nicest, coolest, smartest, and most socially tolerant people you could ever hope to meet — much more so than the conservative adherents of Certain Religions That Will Remain Unnamed. Thanks to Simone, Daniel, Tabitha, et al. for providing such a hugely enjoyable and professional sounding podcast. Hail Satan!
