    The Ouija Board Episode

    The Ouija Board Episode

    Everyone remembers their first sleepover seance in grade school, with the help of the Parker Bros’-owned ‘oracle’: the Ouija board. But why are so many people so scared of a party game? We're making contact with the Talking Board Historical Society for more on the old Beelze-Board.

    Our Non-Satanist Satanic Role Models

    Our Non-Satanist Satanic Role Models

    When we see Satanists and Satanism in media, it’s always the same story: Black cloaks, human sacrifices, and not a lot of authenticity. Today, we’ve singled out some of our favorite fictional works and characters that portray our real Satanic values -– even though none of these are actually supposed to be Satanists.

Thank you

When I found TST thanks to my partner who mentioned what they do to protect women’s right and stuff I had to check them out, granted I was baptized as a baby to be catholic. But it was never me, I love horror movies and black metal and have dealt with a lot of repressed religious guilt, so joining TST was that freedom, to find like minded people who love what I love and share the same views on human life like I do. But, I could never come out to my religious family. My partner and a few friends know but it’s been hard. Then I found this podcast as I searched to learn more and be more apart of this amazing and beautiful Satanic community. I’m so happy to have found this podcast where it’s like cemented the fact this is who I really am, it’s made me appreciate it more and made me more hopeful to find more like minded individuals to share this with. You guys are amazing and really helped me with this new chapter in my life and get through tough work days, so again thank you.

Satanism that Puts a Smile on Your Face!

Greetings, you dirty little monsters! The folks at Black Mass Appeal have put together a truly great 'cast (more TST than CoS, thank Lucifer). The hosts keep it lively, the topics are always interesting, everyone has great chemistry, and I can truly feel the love of the Dark One deep within their hearts. I listen every day, even though I've heard every episode already, because they are great enough to listen to and the content is so entertaining, useful, and pertinent. I can't get enough, and I look forward to every new episode.

There are tons of podcasts on modern Satanism. Out of those many, there are certainly a few that are well worth listening to. But Black Mass Appeal ranks in the upper echelons of diabolic podcasts, and should definitely be a part of your regular listening.

Thank you infidels

Hello fellow infidels. Just wanted to say as a kid who grew up a majority of his time in the Bay Area I’m happy to know that there’s a Satanist group in the Bay Area. My father was stationed both in Alameda and on Treasure Island and we were there for the 1989 earthquake, a day that we’ll never forget. As a huge supporter of the LGBTQ community in support of family and dear friends it’s also great to know you guys are there for them, as well as yourselves. I do also listen to Satanic Delco in Philadelphia and I love you both for your honesty, kindness, comedic nature, and of course for the charitable events you both do for your communities. Keep up the great work, Hail Satan 🤘🏾
