In “Witchcraft,” legend hunter Jeff Belanger explores the history of witchcraft and witch trials from the first New England tribunals in Hartford, Connecticut in 1647, through Salem, Massachusetts. The episode explores what led up to the hysteria and how Salem has become an unlikely Mecca for witches today. Plus, we meet some actual modern-day Witches who discuss what it means to be a Witch in Salem.
