Folk Magic and the Salem Witch Trials with Maya Rook
Description Josh Hutchinson and Sarah Jack present historian Maya Rook. She is a cultural historian, educator, and host of Illusory Time and Salem Oracle, and a yoga and meditation instructor.  We discuss Salem Witch Trials folklore, divination, and magic facts in depth, along with the pop culture portrayal of the witch.  Find out what can be known by the records about accused witch and slave Tituba. What is Sympathetic Magic? Was Counter Magic being used? We also look for answers to our advocacy questions: Why do we witch hunt? How do we witch hunt? How do we stop hunting witches?
