And we're back! For our first full show of 2021, the Bad Ideas crew wastes no time, hitting the ground running with stories about Satanism, arson, dystopian government, and grandmothers!

For our first story of the year, Zach brings us a story about a group of Satanists who are looking for justice after one of their historic properties burns down. The gang turns it into a story of a young go-getter who is forced to reconnect with his roots, and face up to the past he's tried so hard to leave behind. Then, Sarah's story about a group of elderly women who need to party is one of our briefest bad ideas ever, but it is turned into one of our grandest tales yet. A story about an evil totalitarian government, the courageous resistance fighters that rose up against it, and the redemptive power of song. 

All of that, plus: small town Satanism, setpieces involving goats, power vacuums, wellness checks, and leader-approved music.
