In this episode, Cody and Chris dive into amulets and talismans (talismen?), those objects that help protect against evil. First, because Cody loves Thai food so much, he talks about Thailand’s Supernatural Talisman Dolls, a recent, weird trend. Next, Chris discusses the most basic of compounds (and potent protective substances), salt. It’s more interesting than you’d think! Next, Cody talks about Apotropaic Magic, or magic that is used to ward off evil, with a focus on the protective power of gentilia (you read that right). Finally, Chris shares the Ancient Roman belief in Penis Amulets (you also read that right). Creep of the Week is about a recent discovery of an ancient amulet in Israel. Drinks this week are Kobucha and Talisman.
