Episode 93: We’ll Eat You Up We Love You So: The Boogeyman

The boogeyman will get you if you don’t mind your manners… or go to sleep… or listen to your parents. Everyone knows that. But who is he? Where did he come from? What does he want? This week we will look at the shadowy characters who keep children in line and seem to have a natural appetite for destruction. Join us as we discuss villains from El Hombre de Saco to the Beast of Jersey. We’ll also discuss Goya’s Saturn, and the ways in which it shows it’s not only our kids who should fear these men.
