The Andover Witch Hunt with Richard Hite
We have the honor of discussing the book In the Shadow of Salem with author and archivist Richard Hite. This episode focuses our witch trial investigation on a distinct element of the Salem Witch-Hunt community story. We check out the neighboring town of Andover to discover what is eyebrow raising about its accusers and accused persons.  Hear about large family involvements, shocking confessions and colorful accusations full of spectral claims. We connect past witch trials to today’s witchcraft fear with a discussion answering our advocacy questions: Why do we witch hunt? How do we witch hunt? How do we stop hunting witches?  Links In The Shadow of Salem, Richard Hite University of VA, Salem Witch Trials Documents and TranscriptionsTickets for The Last Night at the Stanley-Whitman HouseEnd Witch Hunts Movement  Join us on Discord to share your ideas and feedback.
