...and of course - The Ghosts.
In the first episode of Season 1, Adam and Tyla invite you to join them on their journey back to the year of 1692 where they walk through the different events and theories surrounding the infamous Witch Trials of Salem, Massachusetts.
They, like many others, have often asked themselves: "why in the world would people do this to each other?" So, they set out to discover what it might have been like during that time as a series of unfortunate events piled up- one on top of the other- to eventually explode into the perfect storm of chaos, betrayal, torture, and fear that we now know of as: The Salem Witch Trials.
We'll never fully understand why and how events like this happened, but we should never stop trying to.
