Eric Bricmont was sadly unable to attend this recording. However, in his absence, Bryan and Sarah do a great job of succinctly discussing the commercialization of Christmas, and its deep ties to the holiday itself.
As the title suggests, this week Eric and Bryan discuss the history, etymology and culture evolution behind one of the most famous Halloween-related creatures ever: the vampire. Enjoy!

With that start of November being All-Saint’s Day and El Dia de Los Muertos, Eric and Bryan felt obliged to follow-thru on listener feedback and devote an episode to Catholic saints. We hope you enjoy it!
