Ep. 44: Satanic Panic, Pt. 2 – Dungeons & Dragons & Heavy Metal (w/ Nick Salese)

Spread the love

Let the panic continue! Last week we showed you the origins of the 1980s Satanic Panic within a rash of alleged Satanic sex rituals at daycare centers. This week, Unloaded Questions co-host and our actual D&D Dungeon Master Nick Salese joins us in the role of resident D&D expert as we trace the Satanic Panic’s spread to point fingers at all corners of popular culture – including the tabletop role-playing game Dungeons & Dragons.

Is TSR’s 1974 hit roleplaying game a recruiting tool for Satanic witch-cults? A gateway to genuine magic ritual and power, at the cost of your soul? No – but it might give you hours of entertainment, at the cost of eternal celibacy.

We ALSO scratch the surface of the media blame put onto heavy metal music, including one very awkward (and hilarious) interview with the Prince of Darkness himself…Ozzy Osbourne!

You can find Nick at his podcast Unloaded Questions on the Longboi Media Network and on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram!
