The Salem Witch Trials

The Salem Witch Trials

October 6, 2022

October is Spooky Season at TGTA, and everywhere else, so we have brought you some Witches for your spooky delight. The Salem Witch Trials are shrouded in myth and legend but is there more than you’ve heard to this story?

You bet there is. Join Rebecca and Becca as we discuss the petty grievances, misogyny and religious fervor that leads to some very dark results.
