Show Notes Chapter Markers

Wut up, and welcome back!
On this episode of Air Candy, we're diving into the world of superstitions. Is it all just nonsense and irrational thinking, or are there any valid reasons that superstitions exist and have endured over time? Listen in to learn more about some of our favorite superstitious beliefs and practices, where they came from, and why we entertain them. We also talk about superstitious behaviors that we have done in the past, and ones that we still do in the present, that may be considered completely illogical or ridiculous. Would you consider yourself to be superstitious at all? If you're quick to answer "no", I'd wager that you are way more superstitious than you think. Listen in to find out!
