Episode 001: Halloween Candy Tampering


Sarah takes us through the history of Halloween and all of its spooky traditions, including trick-or-treating, costumes, pagan rituals, and more! She also investigates the origins of our favourite fun-sized candies. Becca then looks at some instances of Halloween candy tampering and the research behind the topic of Halloween sadism in North America. She discusses cyanide poisoning, misreporting by the media, and what parents should really be concerned about on Hallows’ Eve.
