13 O’Clock Episode 55 – It’s Not the End of the World: Failed Doomsday Predictions

THE END IS NEAR!!! Okay, not really, but a whole bunch of people throughout history have certainly thought that the whole human race was heading for a worldwide cataclysm…any day now. So far, not a single one of these gleeful doomsday prophecies has turned out to be accurate, but what is it with folks who keep predicting the end of the world? And why do their followers still believe them? On this episode, Tom and Jenny take a wild, whirlwind tour through the wacky world of the end of the world, discussing everything from the Great Disappointment of the Millerites to the repeated prediction fails of Harold Camping to the inscrutable prophecies of Nostradamus. Hunker down in your rapture bunker and spend your final hour with episode 55.

13 O’Clock Podcast Episode Two: Satanic Panic!

In the 1980s, the moral scolds of America were suddenly whipped into a frenzy, convinced that everything from Dungeons and Dragons to heavy metal music to Saturday morning cartoons were irrefutable proof that an organized cabal of Satanists was roaming the land, kidnapping and molesting children, sacrificing puppies, and eating juicy babies with a side of devilled eggs. On the second episode of the 13 O’Clock Podcast, Tom and Jenny break down (and make fun of) the tragicomic period of recent history known as the Satanic Panic.
