205: Episode 205 - Anton LaVey & The Church of Satan

Anton LaVey, founder and head priest of the Church of Satan, led a controversial life; he was linked to the death of a famous Hollywood starlet and even a Kennedy brother. In this episode Hannah and Suruthi explore LaVey's early life, from burlesque organ player, to occultist, to being labelled by some as "the most evil man in the world".

Join the girls for a deep dive into America's satanic panic, the origins of Satanism and how it has evolved over the decades.
