Listener beware: beheadings and heart-rippings abound in this week's tour through the history of human sacrifice!
Ritual murder to please the gods or stave off disaster may stretch back as far as human civilization. Every civilization that sacrificed people put its own special spin on the ball, from babies left on mountain tops to warriors chosen by ritual combat and bled to death. This ep, Sean takes the reins as we visit the horrifying custom in all its grisly - and surprisingly varied - forms.
