Bill answers listener questions about Satanic weddings, advice for young Satanists, and other topics.
Some listeners have said they’d like to show their support for this show, and asked if I have a Patreon or similar place to accept tips. At this time, I do not. You can however greatly help me out by bidding on any of my eBay auctions. I have lots of stuff. And I mean LOTS. And I like to see this stuff go to homes where it will be better appreciated. So if you’d like to help out, my eBay channel is here. On most orders I’ll ship worldwide.
I also plan on having some special items this summer for The Devil’s Mischief’s 20th anniversary. Stay tuned. Hail Satan!

Satanic Mass essay:
In 1980, Anton LaVey was brought to the FBI’s attention on completely fabricated accusations against him. Some idiots today still make a big to-do out of this obscure absurdity. Bill addresses this and answers listener mail, with some questions on pseudo-satanism, comments on some of the more recent episodes, a crazy Satanic anecdote, and more.
Back in the early 1970s, the Church of Satan experimented with different hierarchy standards, from color-coded medallions to multiple ceremonial titles, eventually scrapping what didn’t work and keeping what did. Internal newsletters from the day share some insight into what that was like.
Recently The Independent reached out to the Church of Satan to ask our views on Illuminati conspiracy theorists. I ended up speaking to them. You can read the article here:
I managed however to pique the journalist’s interest on the topic of “famous people who may actually be in the Church of Satan”. So she wrote this second short follow-up article:
Much thanks to Becca at The Independent for being a good journalist who can report us with accuracy, unlike people who work for The Telegraph!
