Bonus: "The Satanic Panic" + World Shop!

Join us for another special between-season goodness! This time we teamed up with the awesome folks at World Shop! World Shop gets together and creates worlds from scratch every episode (think: the prep for a great game of D&D or other tabletop RPG). We got together to discuss Satanism, the history of “The Satanic Panic and D&D, and then we set out to build our own world together where the fears were true!

Great video on the history of The Satanic Panic
