A podcast that explores the historical and cultural relevance of the figure known as the Devil. For many, The Devil is an entity not to be trifled with. He (most often it is a "he" pronoun) has an aim to tempt you away from God. For others, The Devil is a fictitious character carefully designed as propaganda; a scare tactic for the faithful. The consequences of this belief around The Devil have been severe. Antisemitism, the crusades, the inquisition, the witch trials, the Satanic Panic, and even today there is Q'Anon. The Devil is VERY real to many people and in this podcast we will look into how this came to be. You already know The Devil You Know. We are uncovering The Devil You DON'T Know.
Don interviews Brendan Foster of the Tsar Power podcast who has a keen interest in Noise Music. They discuss Eugene Thacker's theories about the occult and noise, music theory, angeology AND demonology.

Don encounters his own Devil he didn't know, while Jeremy and Emily share their experiences of "The Road So Far." As Season 2 comes to an end, Don lines out what to expect for Season 3!
