4: Alewives, Witches & Economics

Season 1, Ep. 4

It's Halloween and we can't get enough of witchy tales and spooky stories!

Following on from Episode 1, where Christina and Lisa busted the myth that Alewives are responsible for the modern stereotype of witches - this week they're talking about what the connection really might be.

Sarah hosts this one and learns about how Economics affected the way that women brewed beer, and whether alewives really were accused of being witches.
