Won’t somebody please think of the children! Righteous crusades come and go, but with the truly blessed gift of hindsight, looking back at moral panics aimed at popular culture is undeniably hilarious.

This episode is jam packed with the pious proof, and we’ve even included several video examples below if you’d like an extended look at white people adjusting poorly to new things.
