11. Witchcraft & Witch-hunters

This episode looks at witchcraft and witch-purging in early modern Scotland. We hear the extraordinary confessions of Isobel Gowdie and learn about her initiation into sorcery and her incantations.
Jenny and Annie look at the curious profession of witch-pricking, learning about two famous prickers: John Kincaid and crossdressing Christian Caldwell.
A very surreal and magical episode for Halloween/Samhain!
Warning: This episode contains descriptions of torture.
