    EP14: The Malleus Maleficarum

    EP14: The Malleus Maleficarum

    The Malleus Maleficarum, or the 'Hammer of Witches', was a book from which much of the chaos and hysteria during the witch trials stemmed. To understand what lead up to its publication, this episode looks into attitudes towards witches and magic through history. We then get into this nasty piece of work and the witch-killing craze it helped spur on.

    EP13: Superstitions

    EP13: Superstitions

    Superstitions exist everywhere, in every time and culture. Even the most reasonable of us seem to have a lucky number or a shirt that we wear when we need an extra boost of fate. Walking under ladders, the number thirteen, broken mirrors, horseshoes, four-leaf clovers...they all have a superstitious association and a history as to why.

    EP12: Black Eyed Kids and Men In Black

    EP12: Black Eyed Kids and Men In Black

    Black-eyed kids are certainly spooky. These eery creatures aren't quite human, can cause unnatural harm, and carry with them a dramatic sense of fear that those who have encountered them are plagued by. Close by their side, perhaps as parents or handlers, are the men in black - and not the movie sort. This one's a wild one!

    EP11: Spring Heeled Jack

    EP11: Spring Heeled Jack

    Way back in Victorian London, before Jack the Ripper made his reputation, mysterious and pervy Spring-Heeled Jack was lurking. He was a slap-happy (literally), overly handsy guy with a weird sense of humor. This episode covers some of his attacks and a few theories on who or what he is.
