Ep 78: Illegitimate Concerns: Phantom Social Workers

What’s more frightening than the idea of your own child being kidnapped or harmed? Nothing. Right. Now that we’ve established that, let’s look at the legend of the phantom social worker with fresh eyes. This story is not a boogeyman tale for children, it’s a boogeyman story for their parents. This week we will explore the world of parental paranoia and the realities that fuel those fears. From Irish orphanages’ hidden burial ground; to the Angel Maker, Amelia Dyer; to ninos rabados in Spain, we will find there is much to fear when you’re trying to keep your babies safe. We’ll conclude with an in depth look at the forgotten history of midcentury American maternity homes and the marks they left on our cultural landscape.

Ep 77: Burns, Burns, Burns; The Ring of Fire

For years, decades, even centuries; the rumors of human beings bursting into flames of their own accord has been a rumor that no one can seem to put out.  The phenomenon known as Spontaneous Human Combustion, or SHC, as we in the biz call it, has been the subject of debate and gossip for quite some time, but what is it, exactly? Join us this week as we ask this question and attempt to answer it and others like: is it possible? If not, then how do you explain the mysterious (and well documented) cases thoughout history?
