Ep. 43: Satanic Panic, Pt. 1 – Ritual Abuse & McMartin Preschool

Spread the love

July is the month for Satanic Panic, and Sean kicks off our four-part series with a look at the cases that set the tone for ritual abuse hysteria in the 1980s.

From the 1980 bestseller Michelle Remembers to the more than four-year-long satanic sex abuse trial surrounding McMartin Preschool in California, we try and get at the roots of what some have claimed is a vast underground conspiracy of devil-worshipping child molesters.

Warning: some of this content is especially icky.
