Witches didn't exist, and yet thousands of people were executed for the crime of witchcraft. Why? The belief in magic and witchcraft has existed in every recorded human culture; this podcast looks at how people explained the inexplicable, turned random acts of nature into conscious acts of mortal or supernatural beings, and how desperate communities took revenge against the suspected perpetrators.

Sticks to his topic, free of pointless rambling on. Very refreshing for this topic! Blessed be!
Well researched and well presented!
A fun podcast on, well, you can tell what it's about, right? It's a narrow subject, in a way, but it's a nice look at a phenomenon that crossed many countries and time periods, so a little bit different from how most podcasts are organized. The research is solid, the story-telling engaging, and it's all sprinkled with a bit of humor. Definitely recommended.
