Josh T. Romero and Mitch Horowitz discuss where the occult and horror converge and depart. They consider how certain occult concepts are embraced or rejected with our culture, and offer an exegesis of the indefatigable bullshit that is the Satanic Panic.
Mitch Horowitz is a historian of alternative spirituality and one of today’s most literate voices of esoterica, mysticism, and the occult. Mitch illuminates outsider history, explains its relevance to contemporary life, and reveals the longstanding quest to bring empowerment and agency to the human condition. He is widely credited with returning the term “New Age” to respectable use and is among the few occult writers whose work touches the bases of academic scholarship, national journalism, and subculture cred.
