I really enjoyed the Salem series. Can't wait to see what they come up with next.
Season 1 covers the Salem Witch Trials. Episode length is good. I wanted just a little more each time, which is way better than thinking each ep is too long! Depth of coverage is amazing. I’d seen some TV shows on the subject and I remember learning some about the Trials in school. But this coverage went deeper than either of those and stayed interesting the whole time!
An incredible point it time. The fear of the unknown in 1692 must have been devastating. This podcast shows so much research and an ability to succinctly incorporate so much of it in a story format. Keep it coming.
The description of the jail conditions makes hanging sound preferable. Incredible story told perfectly. Good work.
