Bella and Uma’s Breakdowns is back for Season 6 of The TidePod. For this installment, we’re discussing the history behind Halloween and how it became the holiday it is today. When we think of Halloween now, the current traditions come to mind: trick-or-treating for candy, dressing up in costumes, using spooky decorations, and watching beloved Halloween movies. But what is the root of all these traditions? Listen to the episode linked here to find out! For more episodes, check out the TidePod on Spotify and Buzzsprout.

 

This episode of the TidePod was hosted and written by Uma Patnaik and Bella Major. Graphic by Valerie Wang. Music courtesy of Corrigan Peters. Produced and edited by Uma Patnaik.
