Episode Notes

Our Scariest Podcast Yet! – If, that is, you define scary as speculation on urban ascendancy over agrarian society as contributing to the rise of Halloween, and if you define scary as speculation on how the animated TV classic “It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!” led to the pumpkin’s dominance over all other gourds/root vegetables at Halloween, and if you define scary as how cultural appropriation/assimilation by the Medieval Catholic Church prepared the ground for Halloween…and we do! In this episode Ken and Glen discuss Halloween’s origins and modern manifestations.
