When you think of a thug, chances are good you imagine an Indian man wearing a yellow scarf, but that's exactly what the term originally described! The Thugs were bands of roving bandits/murders who may have been practicing ritual sacrifice to appease a bloodthirsty goddess in a way of life they called thuggee...or they may never have existed at all.

We'll try to separate fact from fiction and you'll get an update on Hannah Duston and Salad Fingers on this week's Spooky A S!

Tonight, Eric is joined by special guest Charles Gustine, host of the podcast Iconogrophy. When these two let met, Eric was a guest on Charles' podcast to discuss witchfinding and modern Salem. Tonight Charles returns the favor as the two discuss Hannah Duston: A Mother's Revenge!

Hannah Duston was a puritan woman living in Haverhill, Massachusetts in 1697 when she, her servant and her infant daughter were taken captive by Native Americans. The Natives were involved in a war against the English at the time, and they told Hannah their plan was to torture the captives and then ransom them back to their families. Hannah didn't like the sound of this, but when one of the natives killed her infant daughter, Hannah began plotting not only an escape, but very possibly a shocking act of revenge.

Eric and Charles will discuss the complicated legacy of Hannah Duston's story, what to do with monuments erected to celebrate people/events we're not so sure we should be celebrating anymore, the over simplification of Native American history, the Matter Family, and Tarantino films on tonight's episode!

Thanks to busted equipment and St. Patrick's day being just around the corner, we're dipping into the archives to re-present you an early episode about Leprechauns and Banshees! Actually, we cover a lot of Irish mythology and this episode deserves more downloads than it got the first time around.

Eric and guest Tom Cole will also discuss words they have trouble saying and, as a new added bonus, Eric will tell you about the time he met Warwick Davis, The Leprechaun himself!

Tonight Eric welcomes Back Lilith Beest (aka Lil' Beesty) to talk about Halloween 2018 (the movie, not the holiday). Eric and Lil are both huge fans of Halloween 1978, but will they share the same passion for the latest entry?

Spoiler: No, they will not. One will love it, one will tolerate it. They'll also give their thoughts on Jamie Lee Curtis, the motivations of Michael Myers and the sad state of the mental health profession as represented by all Halloween movies.
