For a fun little Halloween celebration, I went back on my friend Melissa’s podcast, D:Programmed. This chat as well marks the final episode under her current branding, and in November she’ll be changing its name to the Wicked Truth, equipped with a cohost and more expansive subject matter not limited to cults and occultism. Same youtube channel though, so subscribe if you like!
Our conversation will be released soon on apple and anywhere else you get your podcasts, aside from spotify! And for now, here’s the livestream from youtube. There was a fun and interactive audience in the chatroom here and Melissa was a great host as usual, it made a for a nice lil Halloween celebration.
We talked about Jung, analytic psychology’s standpoint on the demon, and what kind of role memes and archetypes play in this discussion.
We also talk about unexplainable phenomena like poltergeists, possession, and hauntings.
Is there any difference between mental illness and reportedly malevolent unexplainable phenomena? And if there is, how much of this malevolence is evil and how much of it is simply animalistic?
All this and more in our conversation, so check it out if you’re looking for more halloween spooks!
And don’t forget to pre-order Hunt Manual right here! I hope you dig the book and the listen.
