Who would have guessed that the disbandment of the Knights Templar in 1309 would have led to centuries of people scrambling to lay claim to their legacy as descendants of the legendary order of Catholic knights? With a lot of mysticism borrowed from a dozen different spiritual movements, including Christianity, Rosicrucianism, and perhaps a smidge of white supremacy, The Order of the Solar Temple aspired to attain the ultimate spiritual nexus in the hopes of riding out a coming apocalypse, but as most movements of this type tend to do, it took around a decade before it all crumbled into a heap of crime, murder, and mass suicide that spanned across three countries.Learn more about this still very mysterious cult, as well as how affluence-bred boredom can be particularly detrimental to societies at large.Additional Info:https://www.encyclopedia.com/science/encyclopedias-almanacs-transcripts-and-maps/di-mambro-joseph-1924-1994https://www.ranker.com/list/order-of-the-solar-temple-cult/amandasedlakhevenerhttps://www.nytimes.com/1994/10/09/world/a-preacher-with-a-dark-side-led-cultists-to-swiss-chalets.html?pagewanted=allhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Order_of_the_Solar_TempleSponsor: Local Hero Press https://localheropress.com/ Your Average Witch PodcastA podcast by and about your average witch, talking about witch life, witch stories, and...Listen on: Apple Podcasts   SpotifyShow Credits:Graphics -- Nathaniel Dickson: http://ndickson.comMusic -- Spencer Morelock, Ken DicksonDing Dong Darkness Time Media:Twitter: @dddarknesstimeInstagram: dddarknesstimeGmail: dddarknesstime@gmail.com
If you think Reverend Sun Myoung Moon was merely interested in mass marriages in baseball stadiums, then buckle up, because there is a whole lot to learn about the  vast empire built by the now late religious figure who used anti-communist sentiment and Christianity to begin a following in South Korea in the 1950s, and then gain far-reaching influence with conservative and far-right movements in the United States starting in the 1970s and lasting well up to today, including participation in the Capitol riot of January 6th, 2021 as well as the assassination of former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in the summer of 2022.This is a cult that has a firm monetary grip on media and governments across the world, and this episode only begins to scratch the surface.Also, Allison answers a listener question on how she feels about the phrase "Drinking the Kool-Aid."Additional Info:Unification Church Wiki:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unification_Church#Background_and_originsSteven Hassan's BITE Model of Authoritarian Control:https://freedomofmind.com/cult-mind-control/bite-model/List of Organizations and Businesses Owned by or Affiliated with the Unification Church:https://freedomofmind.com/exclusive-list-of-entities-closely-associated-with-sun-myung-moon/SPLC Article on Rod of Iron Ministries (Moonie offshoot cult)https://www.splcenter.org/hatewatch/2021/10/08/rod-iron-antigovernment-christian-right-and-far-right-movements-join-freedom-festivalVice Documentary on Rod of Iron Freedom Festival:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n_JhtYm3-zYHow Reverend Moon Made Sushi Big in America:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7zhZnvvi_lAAccount of a Former Moonie:https://www.insider.com/to-the-moon-and-back-lisa-kohn-what-its-like-to-be-former-moonie-2018-8Your Average Witch PodcastA podcast by and about your average witch, talking about witch life, witch stories, and...Listen on: Apple Podcasts   SpotifyShow Credits:Graphics -- Nathaniel Dickson: http://ndickson.comMusic -- Spencer Morelock, Ken DicksonDing Dong Darkness Time Media:Twitter: @dddarknesstimeInstagram: dddarknesstimeGmail: dddarknesstime@gmail.com
If you're a psychology nerd or always wanted to be, the premier episode of Season 3: Class of Cults is all for you. Allison gathers with two of her dearest friends, Chris from 80s High, who also happens to have a psychology degree, and Dr. Bart Abplanalp, noted forensic psychologist, to discuss what cults are, what types of cults exist, and all the ways in which every one of us is vulnerable to a cultic mindset through the manipulation of emotions and language.In order to illustrate this, we begin with a discussion on the Stanley Milgram Obedience Study and then venture on to Philip Zimbardo's Stanford Prison Experiment and its impacts on humanity's views of authority, before talking about cognitive dissonance,  personality disorders, and a myriad of other ways groups of humans can assemble in dysfunctional and destructive ways.Hopefully this will set a firm foundation for the upcoming season chock full of education on all the cults and organizations that behave suspiciously like them.

Everything's Eventual, y'all. Including the ultimate ending of our Stephen King Boogaloo! But Allison and Chris want to go out on a haunting note, so they decided to pluck their two favorite stories from King's celebrated short story collection, Everything's Eventual. While the entire catalog is worth celebrating, these are two key stories that we think go very well together, especially as they were both mentioned in King's fantastic non-fiction book, On Writing.In The Man in the Black Suit, King flexes his literary fiction muscles to the tune of winning an O. Henry Award and other major accolades in a story about a young boy who goes to the river to do a little fishing and ends up meeting the devil. And in 1408, the ultimate haunted hotel story, a man's skepticism about ghosties and ghoulies is put to the ultimate test with a bad acid trip/fever dream experience that has lived rent-free in our heads ever since we read it. The movie starring John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson is also well worth a watch. We give you the scoop on a lot of the interesting trivia you might have missed.Additional Info:80s High Podcast:  https://the80shigh.podbean.com/Credits:Show Art -- Nathaniel Dickson http://ndickson.comMusic -- Spencer MorelockDing Dong Darkness Time Media:Twitter: @dddarknesstimeInstagram: dddarknesstimeGmail: dddarknesstime@gmail.comYour Average Witch PodcastA podcast by and about your average witch, talking about witch life, witch stories, and...Listen on: Apple Podcasts   SpotifyShow Credits:Graphics -- Nathaniel Dickson: http://ndickson.comMusic -- Spencer Morelock, Ken DicksonDing Dong Darkness Time Media:Twitter: @dddarknesstimeInstagram: dddarknesstimeGmail: dddarknesstime@gmail.com
Back in October of 2021, before the dawn of the Darkness Time, Allison visited the 80s High podcast to talk with Ben and Chris about Stephen King's mega-monster of a tome, IT. We also dove into the movie franchises, the origins of clowns-as-horror-tropes, HP Lovecraft, and so much more. This is not only a great opportunity to stuff your head full of knowledge on one of Stephen King's most famous works, but especially to get to know one of the best podcasts out there. We promise there won't be a pop quiz, but it never hurts to study!Additional Info:80s High Podcast:  https://the80shigh.podbean.com/Credits:Show Art -- Nathaniel Dickson http://ndickson.comMusic -- Spencer MorelockDing Dong Darkness Time Media:Twitter: @dddarknesstimeInstagram: dddarknesstimeGmail: dddarknesstime@gmail.comYour Average Witch PodcastA podcast by and about your average witch, talking about witch life, witch stories, and...Listen on: Apple Podcasts   SpotifyShow Credits:Graphics -- Nathaniel Dickson: http://ndickson.comMusic -- Spencer Morelock, Ken DicksonDing Dong Darkness Time Media:Twitter: @dddarknesstimeInstagram: dddarknesstimeGmail: dddarknesstime@gmail.com
It's the finale of Season 2: Stephen King Boogaloo! Chris and Allison have packed this thing to the gills doing a full exploration of the piece of storytelling that made Stephen King a triple threat: Author, Screenwriter, Feature Film Director. We begin with King's short story, Trucks. Featured in the collection Night Shift, it's a chilling vignette of big rigs turned autonomous and bloodthirsty. We then venture into King's directorial debut with the 1986 exercise in campy , schlocky fun, Maximum Overdrive. Rumor has it King was coked out of his mind, and many don't exactly remember this movie as particularly great. However, even as we recognize some of the movie's faults, we're swinging as heavyweights in favor of it.The genuine craft of this movie really comes into focus when we take a short side trip into the USA Network adaptation from 1997, also named Trucks. Watch this and then dare to tell us Maximum Overdrive doesn't deliver the entertaining goods.In King's movie, we have big trucks, explosions, the Green Goblin, and AC/Freakin/DC!By the time you get to the end of this episode, you should be able to sufficiently answer the question, Who Made Who?Additional Info:Chris's Podcast, 80s High: https://the80shigh.podbean.com/Maximum Overdrive Wiki: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maximum_OverdriveTrucks (USA Network, Full Movie) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cPEfEkVkrLcShow Credits:Artwork: Nathaniel Dickson http://ndickson.comMusic: Spencer MorelockDing Dong Darkness Time Media:Twitter: @dddarknesstimeInstagram: dddarknesstimeGmail: dddarknesstime@gmail.comYour Average Witch PodcastA podcast by and about your average witch, talking about witch life, witch stories, and...Listen on: Apple Podcasts   SpotifyShow Credits:Graphics -- Nathaniel Dickson: http://ndickson.comMusic -- Spencer Morelock, Ken DicksonDing Dong Darkness Time Media:Twitter: @dddarknesstimeInstagram: dddarknesstimeGmail: dddarknesstime@gmail.com
This week, Allison is joined by author and poet Jaclyn Youhana Garver to discuss one of Stephen King's most under-read books, Hearts in Atlantis. This mosaic of five stories circles around a cast of characters who grew up in the incredibly tumultuous 1960s, and either went off to Vietnam, or joined the protests against it as young adults. The most well-known story from this collection, Low Men in Yellow Coats, was adapted to the big screen in 2005, starring Anthony Hopkins.With elements of the mundane supernatural thrown into the mix, as well as a potent shot of bitter nostalgia, King's lens on his generation and its effects on the world throughout the decades clear through to today is a fascinating, bold, and heart-rending read. And as many of his works tend to be, it remains incredibly relevant as we face many of the similar challenges. When do we follow along with the status quo? When do we resist? What are the consequences, both inwardly and outwardly, for making those choices?Also, there's something here for the Dark Tower fans out there...Additional Information:Follow Jaclyn on Twitter: @JYoGarver(Jaclyn's New Website Coming Soon!)Hearts in Atlantis Wiki: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hearts_in_Atlantis Credits:Show Art -- Nathaniel Dickson http://ndickson.comMusic -- Spencer MorelockDing Dong Darkness Time Media:Twitter: @dddarknesstimeInstagram: dddarknesstimeGmail: dddarknesstime@gmail.comYour Average Witch PodcastA podcast by and about your average witch, talking about witch life, witch stories, and...Listen on: Apple Podcasts   SpotifyShow Credits:Graphics -- Nathaniel Dickson: http://ndickson.comMusic -- Spencer Morelock, Ken DicksonDing Dong Darkness Time Media:Twitter: @dddarknesstimeInstagram: dddarknesstimeGmail: dddarknesstime@gmail.com
This week Allison sits down with post-apocalyptic fiction author David Kazzie to discuss what is largely considered Stephen King's most epic and consequential work, The Stand. Apart from talking about the story's origins, we consider how it holds up in the current era. What's it like lining up a fictional pandemic against a real one? How does King manage to make such a story originally crafted in 1978 (and revised and expanded in 1990) feel so relatable to the tumultuous events of today?

This week's Stephen King discussion intersects with our love of true crime. And because our special guest, Kate Jenkins, happens to be a lawyer, we wasted no opportunity to discuss one of our favorite novellas and movies in the realm of an actual murder case. Would Andy Dufresne have actually been convicted of the double murder that sent him to Shawshank State Prison? Could he have ever had his conviction overturned on appeal?Not only that, but we also use this amazing novella and film to discuss how it forces us to reflect on aspects of criminal justice, prisoner rehabilitation and institutionalization, compassion, and what it says about the Judeo-Christian values that shape our society.Okay, also we pick which of our celebrity crushes would be on the poster that covers the tunnel we'd be digging out of our prison cells. Really, we run the full gamut here.Additional Information:Chris's Podcast, 80s High: https://the80shigh.podbean.com/Ear Hustle Podcast -- Stories of prison life: https://www.earhustlesq.com/Shawshank Redemption Movie Wiki: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Shawshank_RedemptionRita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption Novella Wiki: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rita_Hayworth_and_Shawshank_RedemptionShow Credits:Artwork: Nathaniel Dickson http://ndickson.comMusic: Spencer MorelockYour Average Witch PodcastA podcast by and about your average witch, talking about witch life, witch stories, and...Listen on: Apple Podcasts   SpotifyShow Credits:Graphics -- Nathaniel Dickson: http://ndickson.comMusic -- Spencer Morelock, Ken DicksonDing Dong Darkness Time Media:Twitter: @dddarknesstimeInstagram: dddarknesstimeGmail: dddarknesstime@gmail.com
In the second part of our episode on The Body and Stand By Me, Allison, Chris, and Kate dive to the depths of the emotional core of this tale and all its characters, as well as rehash some of its best moments and how they resonated with us on a personal level. How did Rob Reiner get such great performances out of his young actors? How can it be that a parent who completely ignores you is almost worse than one who hits you? What is Emotional Carbonation? Wait... Kiefer Sutherland is how tall?All those answers and more await you in this episode!Additional Info:Chris's Podcast, 80s High:  https://the80shigh.podbean.com/Stand by Me IMDB: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0092005/Different Seasons Wiki: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Different_SeasonsCredits:Show Art: Nathaniel Dickson http://ndickson.comShow Music: Spencer MorelockYour Average Witch PodcastA podcast by and about your average witch, talking about witch life, witch stories, and...Listen on: Apple Podcasts   SpotifyShow Credits:Graphics -- Nathaniel Dickson: http://ndickson.comMusic -- Spencer Morelock, Ken DicksonDing Dong Darkness Time Media:Twitter: @dddarknesstimeInstagram: dddarknesstimeGmail: dddarknesstime@gmail.com
This week, Allison, Chris, and special guest Kate Jenkins set out on a journey to explore Stephen King's best known coming of age tale, The Body, as well as the Rob Reiner film adaptation, Stand By Me.Although it's set in 1959 rural Maine, a very different world from today, this story seems to resonate through the ages, and we're here to pick apart all the reasons why. This is part one of a two part discussion, so be sure to come back for the conclusion! “I never had any friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve.

Picking right back up where we left off in Part 1 (please listen to that one first if you haven't!), Allison and James D.F. Hannah delve into the darkest and most horrific parts of Stephen King's novel, Pet Sematary. And then things lighten up a tad when they discuss Mary Lambert's 1989 film adaptation, which gets about as much wrong as it does right.

This week, crime author James D.F. Hannah comes on to discuss Stephen King's most terrifying novel, Pet Sematary, a book that King himself thinks was too dark, even for him.We introduce the Creed family, and their friendly neighbors across the very dangerous road, and we discuss King's overall meditation on family, secrets, death, and grief. And much like the book itself, we dose you with a small spoonful of the unimaginable darkness to come in the second half. But nothing will compare to the full journey to the end of this harrowing beast of a tale.Part 2 will be up very soon after, so you won't have to wait too long!Additional Info: James DF Hannah on Amazon -- https://www.amazon.com/James-D.F.-Hannah/e/B01A9QHA84%3Fref=dbs_a_mng_rwt_scns_sharePet Sematary Wiki -- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pet_SemataryThe Monkey's Paw -- https://americanliterature.com/author/w-w-jacobs/short-story/the-monkeys-pawCredits:Show Graphics -- Nathaniel Dickson http://ndickson.comShow Music -- Spencer MorelockYour Average Witch PodcastA podcast by and about your average witch, talking about witch life, witch stories, and...Listen on: Apple Podcasts   SpotifyShow Credits:Graphics -- Nathaniel Dickson: http://ndickson.comMusic -- Spencer Morelock, Ken DicksonDing Dong Darkness Time Media:Twitter: @dddarknesstimeInstagram: dddarknesstimeGmail: dddarknesstime@gmail.com

Join Allison and her special guest, author and teacher Terri Lynn Coop, as they dissect pretty much every single story in Stephen King's legendary debut collection of short stories, Night Shift. Highlights are Children of the Corn, The Ledge, Battleground, The Mangler, Quitters Inc, and so much more. Terri also gives her insights as a teacher offering up some of these works to her high school English students, and we also take a little time to nerd out over other amazing short fiction and general writer geek stuff.Additional Info:Terri Lynn Coop's Books and StoriesTerri Lynn Coop's Stories on Shotgun HoneyStephen King's Night Shift WikiCredits:Show Graphics -- Nathaniel DicksonShow Music -- Spencer MorelockSocials:Ding Dong Darkness Time on Twitter: @DDDarknessTimeDing Dong Darkness Time on Instagram: DDDarknessTimeAllison's Website: http://allisonmdickson.comYour Average Witch PodcastA podcast by and about your average witch, talking about witch life, witch stories, and...Listen on: Apple Podcasts   SpotifyShow Credits:Graphics -- Nathaniel Dickson: http://ndickson.comMusic -- Spencer Morelock, Ken DicksonDing Dong Darkness Time Media:Twitter: @dddarknesstimeInstagram: dddarknesstimeGmail: dddarknesstime@gmail.com
Our journey into the heart of Stephen King's darkness takes a distinct Lovecraftian turn. And joining us for the discussion this week is the always splendid Brett from the hit true crime podcast, The Prosecutors! Brett has always been a big fan of horror, particularly the cosmic variety, and we are so thrilled he joined us to give his very astute viewpoints on one of King's most horrifying novellas, The Mist!But the discussion includes so much more. If it's even tangentially horror, we pretty much went there. Allison, Chris, and Brett also come at Frank Darabont's 2007 movie adaptation from three distinct points of view.

Welcome to the premier of Season 2! We're devoting this entire season to the works of Stephen King, and right out of the gate, we have Allison and Chris, joined by Josh and Kelly from Press Play and Scream, to discuss the story that made them number one fans.

In this bonus episode that was originally intended to be part of Haunting Architecture, Allison and Chris talk about their adventure in the sweltering summer of 2006, when they visited the once abandoned mental health facility known as Ashmore Estates in central Illinois. Nowadays, it is very much not abandoned and serves as a beacon for budding paranormal researchers, but on the day they explored the place, it was little more than a debris-filled husk of its former self. In other words, they got in there before it was cool!Listen and learn more about their crazy little adventure as well as the background of this interesting site, and why you should carve out little moments of exploration magic for yourself.

This week, Allison and Chris dig deep into their own shared love and education in psychology to talk about the Dancing Plague of 1518, one of many such mass hysteria events that occurred during medieval Europe. In doing so, they also relate those events to the current day, where humanity remains no stranger to psychogenic illnesses. Why did so many people choose to dance themselves to death? Was it ergot, ego, or FOMO?This is the season finale of the show, and we hope you'll be back for season 2, coming very soon!Credits:Graphics -- Nathaniel DicksonMusic -- Spencer MorelockAdditional Info:The Dancing Plague of 1518 WikiThe Great Mortality by John KellyA List of Other Mass Hysteria EventsYour Average Witch PodcastA podcast by and about your average witch, talking about witch life, witch stories, and...Listen on: Apple Podcasts   SpotifyShow Credits:Graphics -- Nathaniel Dickson: http://ndickson.comMusic -- Spencer Morelock, Ken DicksonDing Dong Darkness Time Media:Twitter: @dddarknesstimeInstagram: dddarknesstimeGmail: dddarknesstime@gmail.com
