49: Mummies! Rosalia Lombardo & Otzi the Ice Man
Amanda is still scared of mummies! She tells Terran about the mummified body of a young girl named Rosalia Lombardo, and how her corpse has been seen opening and closing her eyes throughout the day. Then she talks about Otzi the Ice Man, a 4,000-year-old mummy found frozen in the ice on the Otztal Alps. His body was so well-preserved that researchers were able to learn many things about Copper Age humans just from dissecting this one man!

46: Satanic Panic Finale
We finish off the Satanic Panic (for now) with several more daycare stories. Daycares in Massachusetts, North Carolina, and Saskatchewan, Canada had a slew of parents accusing daycare workers of "Satanic Ritual Abuse" in the 80's, eventually coercing the children who attended the schools to falsify ridiculous claims of animal sacrifice, molestation, "bad clowns", microwaving children, and even murder, with absolutely no evidence.

45: Kern County Continued
Terran continues the story of the Satanic Panic in Kern County, California. Parents and daycare workers began to be wrongfully accused of "Satanic Ritual Abuse" by other parents. The children, sometimes their own children, were coaxed into lying during interviews and testimonies to perpetuate the outrageous accusations. Afterwards, the sisters go off on a tangent about the Britney conservatorship and the new documentary, Trump's Trial version 2.0, the power outages in Texas, and Hannah's mysterious vanishing goldfish.

44: McMartin Preschool Trials
It seems as though the Satanic Panic will never end... Much like the McMartin Preschool Trials! In 1983, a woman accused her son's preschool teacher of sexually abusing her child. But she also claimed that the school was sacrificing animals and flushing children down toilets, so obviously Satan must be involved, right? In America's longest and most expensive trial, seven preschool teachers and administrators were accused of Satanic Ritual Abuse, but not a single one of them ended up getting convicted due to lack of evidence. Shit's cray-cray.

43: Kern County Lords of Bakersfield
Terran sets the scene for our dive into the Satanic Panic in Kern County, California. Several wealthy men in the 80's were so bad at their jobs that they ended up wrongfully sending dozens of people to prison for child abuse, when they themselves were engaging in sexual activity with underage boys and girls.
