A spiritual crisis grips the Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1692 that results in the deaths of twenty-five people and effectively ended a budding American theocracy. Remarkable Providences dives deep into the climate of purity and resentment that generated one of the most enduring–and misunderstood–American myths. Kate Devorak, a former Salem tour guide and current Salem nerd, takes us through the story of how fear, greed, prejudice, and zeal caused a community to nearly destroy itself from the inside out. Remarkable Providences is a podcast about Puritans and pettiness, magic and misogyny, gospel and government, and, of course, the Salem Witch Trials.
