Boogey-, Barky-, Slender-Man

Freddy Krueger. Slenderman. James P. Sullivan (Sully). All three of these characters have one thing in common – they are modern day boogeymen, and their goal is to scare our children. In episode 8, we talk about the Boogeyman’s cultural origins, and his surprising importance in children’s development. We also discuss how the story of A Nightmare on Elm Street may be more real than you’d think. Soon you will know what is really lurking under your child’s bed (Spoiler alert: it’s nothing. Nothing is under their bed.).
