Better than most Satanist pods.
So far, so good! It's witty, educative, and well-researched. Also, they do a thorough job in providing post-show links. Whatever your flavor of Satanism may be, this is a show for you.
It certainly has appeal...
The podcast is only a few weeks in and everything is starting to gel. The hosts are fun and engaging, sharing and talking about topics that offer insight into modern Satanism, particularly the more politically active sects. Wholly recommended, even for a quick look and seeing Satanists as real people with real thoughts.
