Christina has been reading up on the Salem Witch Trials lately, and had a revelation: if the town of Salem had mental healthcare, the whole thing might have been avoided. Or maybe just, y’know, cleaned their grain properly before eating it…

Also: why the Salem Witch Trials were basically the worst MLM scheme ever, daydreaming about being bedridden, and what the actual heck is a witch cake?!?!

Trigger warning: this episode discusses puritanism, mental health, and death.
