The Cult of Santa Muerte, aka Saint Death A look at Santa Muerte, or Saint Death, a Mexican folk saint whose popularity has skyrocketed over the last 20 years. The Catholic Church has condemned Santa Muerte as "satanic," the Mexican military has destroyed shrines to her, the Mexican government refuses to acknowledge the veneration of Santa Muerte as a religion, and the media in the US and Mexico have conflated the cult of Santa Muerte with drug cartels. But that's not the whole story. We take a look at the history behind Santa Muerte and see how many people who've felt rejected by the Catholic Church have been able to find hope, comfort, and community in Santa Muerte. Highlights include: • Marijuana smoke used as incense • A trans woman who puts on the largest festival to Saint Death • A reimagined version of the rosary • Frida Kahlo holding a ying yang Note: there's a mention of someone being beheaded at 1:21-2:32.

This Way to the Goatman (Goatman’s Bridge Series) Update: Looks like there was a technical glitch when I initially published this episode. It should be fixed now, but let me know if not! One of the most famous urban legends about the Goatman’s Bridge (aka the Old Alton Bridge) has roots in a hidden, unpleasant part of the county’s history. This episode looks at the legend of the Goatman and the history underpinning the story.

I went Goatman’s Bridge (Goatman’s Bridge Series) In December 2021, I visited the Old Alton Bridge, or Goatman’s Bridge. Here’s what it’s like to visit the famously haunted bridge, as well as the history of the bridge itself.  CONTENT NOTE: I talk about gun use in this episode (not about people getting shot, but about people shooting guns near the bridge because they’re bored.) If you don’t want to hear about that, then skip this episode. You should be fine to pick back up on the series in the next episode. (Also, worth nothing that I recorded this before some of this week's gun violence.) I know this episode is on the shorter side, but that’s because some long ones are coming up. (I couldn’t get the topics to split evenly, go figure.) Highlights include: • Lots of mud • Some bridge trivia • Some . . . interesting . . . reviews of the bridge that I found
