In early-2016, Purging Talon began production on The Accusation Party podcast, a series dedicated to putting to rest the often blatant cultural nonsense of such repressive thoughts and actions as third-wave feminism, Islam’s attempt at compatibility with the West, the bias selectivity of so-called hate speech, the war against personal eugenics, and still others. And while this podcast continues with its critical mission, there was certainly room for less serious content; an additional podcast series that takes a lighter and certainly more humorous look at our cultural past.
Strange Moments in Cultural History is the class you never took in high school. Grab a seat up front and turn off your brain as we fill your head with tales of oddballs, villains, outcasts, flops and other lesser-known events in this thing we call human existence. The debut episode is already available in the same podcast feed that carries The Accusation Party, and with more episodes to follow. Also, prepare for yet a third podcast series to surface from Purging Talon in the near future.
Purging Talon Executive Director, Matt G. Paradise had been interviewed on the Raising Hell podcast, primarily to discuss the interest of young people in Satanism and, ultimately, joining the Church of Satan. The conversation also takes a light-hearted turn as Magister Paradise waxes nostalgic about his weird childhood, discovering Satanism, his love for Italian girls, his favorite Brady, his first ritual, and other stimulating topics.
from the website…
Raising Hell is a discussion and education oriented podcast which takes an honest approach to promoting the individualist nature that Satanists are born with, and emboldening our own youth to rise above herd-conformity through responsible parenting.

Back in 1998, Purging Talon Executive Director Matt G. Paradise produced this “mockumentary” on Studio 8 Live / Uncensored, a public access television program which aired on VCAM Channel 15 in Burlington, Vermont, mostly during the 1990s. The video aired at least once on Paradise’s then-current public access show, Subterranean SINema, and then found a home on the now out-of-print Purging Talon DVD title, The Best of Subterranean SINema. Since then, the video had not been publicly available until now. Also, this is the “Producer’s Cut,” which was finished in December of 2003 and includes new graphics, additional b-roll scenes, and tweaks here and there. It has also been preserved in its original 4:3 aspect ratio to make you feel all gushy and nostalgic. Enjoy!
