#27 | Fin Dwyer

In show twenty-seven, historian Fin Dwyer tells Tara whether there’s any weight to her notion that historical witches have a through-line to online swarms. Are shocking events of the past too serious to correlate to today’s stresses? Is there a modern-day equivalent to stocks and what’s a scold’s bridle? Uppity women. Shame as a silencing tool. Fear and power. The tragedy of Bridget Cleary. How European witch trials, which crossed to Atlantic to Salem, originated in an Irish town. (No Wiccans were dissed in the making of this podcast.)
