Show Notes Chapter Markers

In this week's episode, Syd & Jess cover the Salem Witch Trials and the possible medical conditions that may have caused the conviction and execution of 25 people in this weird, bickering Puritan town. We're talking grain fungus that makes you hallucinate, epileptic seizures, being crushed by boulders - it's a wild ride.
