Hallowe‘en: more treat than trick

October 28, 2021

For as long as you remember, you've probably heard warnings to parents, telling them to check their kids Halloween candy for drugs, razor blades, or other objects. Maybe you, yourself have gone through the bag before your kids. 

But, what are the odds of somebody actually putting a razor blade or poison into Halloween candy? Is this something that actually happens? Or is it just a myth?

On this episode of the 519 Podcast, we examine whether Halloween is more trick than treat.

We speak with Dr. Joel Best of the University of Delaware, who has studied Halloween sadism, and examine how true some of these stories actually are.

This episode is hosted by Hayley Cheng, Craig Needles and Patrick Magermans.
