Paradelphia Radio: Bad Dog!, Ep. 198
For thousands of years humans and canines have lived alongside each other and for the most part benefited from a sort of interspecies alliance of goodwill. However, as with most relationships this one between man and beast sometimes gets messy. Nowhere does the line blur more than when the topic of werewolves raises it's pointy ears, sharpens its fangs and howls in the general direction of mankind. This week we look into the earliest recorded mention of shapeshifting in ancient Sumerian texts, the witch/wolf hysteria of the Middle Ages and some modern day encounters with dog men.
