Amanda and Sarah dabble in some all-natural mind and body-altering substances. Sarah takes a thorough dive into ergot poisoning, a condition caused by tainted rye bread that can lead to a long list of symptoms and is cited as one of the possible causes behind the Salem Witch Trials. Amanda goes foraging for magic mushrooms with a look at their history, and the roles they played in various cultures and beliefs. Other subjects covered include a rodent restraint and panty bins.
Sarah recommends the 2018 film A Simple Favor. Amanda recommends the book The Familiars by Stacey Halls.
