So much potential

I’m into the story but the music and all the commercials...it’s a bit much.

Do better.

When you decided to cover this topic, did it ever occur to you that maybe, just maybe, it would be beneficial to actually do even the smallest bit of research into modern satanism or the satanic temple? No we’re not “atheists hoping to get laid while wearing masks in the woods. I’m fact we do far more good than most, not to be righteous, but because satanist are typically good, caring, thoughtful people. Perpetuating hurtful stereotypes only continues the narrative that many people are discriminated against. Don’t belittle a religion just because you’re too lazy to do your due diligence.

Too many ads

This could have been one episode but there are so many ads. It’s ridiculous.
