We're back after a week hiatus with strange traditions & dark histories. Emily discovers the fascinating history behind women popping out of cakes, its medieval origin and the current state of the industry. Then Brenton, provoked by a bad article, details the Hollywood Blacklist of the 1950's and why comparisons to cancel culture completely are actively harmful.
