Last Show Recap

In 1989, Steve and Dawn Hess headed out to the Mojave Desert, anticipating a quiet camping trip. But when they were kidnapped by what they believed to be a swarm of alien beings, the shock and pain of the experience changed their lives forever. Author Ron Felber joined Jimmy Church (email) to update us on the case and to welcome the Hesses for their first live interview. First hour guest, director, actor, and musician Vic Mignogna spoke about his webseries Star Trek Continues.

Types of Demons

Types of Demons

According to the 17th century field guide, Compendium Maleficarum(1), by Francesco Guazzo, there are six main families of demons:

  • Fiery: These demons reside in the upper realms and won't cause problems until the 'Last Judgment' arrives.
  • Aerial: While occasionally making themselves visible to humans, this brand of demon brings about turbulence in the atmosphere that leads to destructive hurricanes, tornadoes, and storms.
  • Terrestrial: The most common type of demon, these tricksters typically live in forests and knolls, lying in wait for guileless passersby. They can also secretly live among people, befriending and then betraying them.
  • Aqueous: These denizens of oceans and rivers can brew up storms at sea, and cause ships to sink and swimmers to drown. They sometimes appear as seductive forms such as sirens and mermaids.
  • Subterranean: Dwelling in caves and caverns they create havoc for miners and others who come near their environs. Earthquakes, wildfires, and hot winds are their tools of the trade.
  • Heliophobic: The most malevolent of all the demons, they appear only at night. With just one blast of their toxic breath, they can strike a person dead. Who knew that halitosis could kill?
