The Devil's Advocate

TDA Productions

The Devil's Advocate is a podcast tackling the most (and least) divisive topics from religion and politics to culture and ideology all whilst keeping one thing in mind: That in order to properly articulate your argument, you must first understand the full picture from both sides. Anything less is not understanding. Hosts Ben and Alex philosophically and humorously debate these issues from a mutual place of neutral objectivity and simultaneously from the opposite sides of Satanism and Christianity. read less

TDA008 - The Satanic Panic Pt. 3
We kick the episode off by discussing the importance of separating art from artists and learning to respect art in all forms. Great art is frequently created by less than ideal people and learning to separate the two is crucial.  For the main topic we round off the three week Satanic Panic series we've been discussing by talking about the major catalyst for its popularity: The McMartin Preschool Trial. From believing every word that children said, to storming a daycare and burning it down, everyone from parents to police had a role in furthering the extent of the panic. The most expensive trial in history at its time, it all began with one extremely mentally ill woman. What makes it even crazier was that an almost identical case with the same name occurred in Canada. (worth checking it) Understanding these things is useful when looking at our government and the way that these types of conspiracy theory play out today in real time.

TDA006 - The Satanic Panic Pt. 1
The boys sit down and discuss the big one, a topic near and dear to both our hearts: The Satanic Panic. The precursor to modern day Qanon conspiracies furthered by Christian Nationalism. The Satanic Panic was a moral panic that swept the nation during the 1980's and demonized everything from music and games to, most importantly, people. Over 10,000 unsubstantiated cases of the supposed kidnapping, torture, and consumption of thousands of children in Satanic ritual abuses. More importantly, no kids ever went missing and many of these cases were later appealed or dropped due to lack of sufficient evidence. However, some innocent people are still imprisoned to this day due to claims of supernatural rituals from over 30 years ago.  We discuss the foundational systems that enabled this moral panic to occur in the first place and talk about the history of the events that happened.
