The 1980s Satanic Panic

Last week I was a guest on Karl Mamer's popular podcast The Conspiracy Skeptic, speaking on the 1980s Satanic Panic. Karl has been recording CS since October 2007 and has cast a skeptical eye on many of the most well-known conspiracies. We need more rationalist like him.

The 80s Satanic Panic, or the Satanic Cult Phenomenon, is a perfect example of a "moral panic," similar to the Salem Witch Trials & McCarthyism. For more information, read Satan's Silence and watch the documentary Witch Hunt.
