Before the Salem Witch Trials (and in a slightly different region on the U.S.) a woman named Elizabeth Garlick faced trial for witchcraft. In this episode, we tell the story of her accusation and trial. And we talk a little about Terry Pratchett’s Discworld books.

Our listener mail is from Beth about “Unearthed in 2012” and the correct use of “Maya.” The article we recommended was “Were the American colonists drugged during the Salem witch trial?”
