This episode was sort of a bummer, sorry folks.
Major take homes: the Satanic Panic was bonkers, go nuts with the heavy metal and DnD, and our memories, for the most part, suck.
On this minisode, we talk about the 80s Satanic Panic and how insane and unjust it was. Also, some deeply cool science about memory and the risks of listening to smooth jazz.
Stuff we discussed:
The Satanic Temple (a political advocacy group)
Enstrom and Schmaltz “A walk on the Wild Side: The Impact of Music on Risk-Taking Likelihood”
The Devil Wears Headphones: A Brief History of Baskmasking by Bill Demain
A Short History of the Rise, Fall and Rise of Subliminal Messaging by Victoria Stern
False Memory of Dr. Elizabeth Loftus and Human Memory by Lindsay Dogson
