Josh Hutchinson and Sarah Jack present Dr. Scott Culpepper. He is a historian, storyteller, author and Professor of History at Dordt University in Sioux Center, IA. We discuss the Connecticut Witch Trials in depth, including dialog on Governor John Winthrop Jr,, alchemy, and specific accused witches. We look for answers to our advocacy questions: Why do we witch hunt? How do we witch hunt? How do we stop hunting witches?
