Hi friends, happy Thursday!

Welcome to Dark History. People used to be sacrificed for popcorn. Yep. The buttery goodness that you finish eating before the trailers are even over at the movies. Now you may be thinking, “how in the heck does that make any sense?” Because, honestly, that was also my initial reaction. But let me tell you, the history of popcorn is WILD. And we’re getting into all of it on today’s episode. So buckle in, babe.

I appreciate you for coming by, and I hope to be seeing you next week for even more dark history. Hope you have a great week ahead and I will be seeing you very soon xx Bailey Sarian

    WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

    missed u love u and dont you worry, murder mystery and makeup is coming real soon xx
  • "Don't forget to thank the children who lost their heads for your bowl of popcorn"
    That hit different with a bowl of popcorn in my hands 😆
  • Leslie Helle
    Dark History should be required viewing for college history classes lol.
  • "Sad animals and stolen humans...you remember The Circus... It all started with a man with a small ego who liked horse tricks... it always does" What a perfect description! (34:28) 🙃
  • Max S.
    "And what's more powerful than strength?"
    Me: "...corn?"
    "Intellienge"
    "..oh that makes sense"
  • Poo Doo
    Please do a dark history of Monsanto! Just watched a docuseries and they pretty much own our food supply, it's wild.
    Also, missed you queen! ❤
  • L Lane
    As someone who is half Mexican...I can say that my ancient ancestors the Aztecs were the original "children of the corn" 😉😁🍿
  • Yeti Voice
    Delightfully strange person, very odd stories, and brilliant delivery. One of the best channels. Big fan.
  • Sunny Quinn
    This is one of those channels that feels like kicking back with a friend.
  • BeachKatz
    You need to have your own show on television kinda like Elvira Mistress of the Dark. Oh how I miss her sense of humor so of course I love your humor and concept for this podcast. 🪬🪦🔪🔮
  • Jewel
    As a native american watcher of your, I truly appreciate how you don't demonize native lifestyles and beliefs. You're beyond respctful when sharing the history of all these morbid things. Thank you for having this awesome podcast!!
  • Maleah Lock
    Bailey: first they killed a little girl and then a woman.
    My Son: I don't think men should be allowed to make up religions. 😂
  • AlterEgo
    Bailey looking like a queen she is, sitting on that throne <3
  • I highly recommend you look into King Philip's War and the tribe that helped the people of Plymouth. Maybe a Thanksgiving-inspired Dark History would be a better time to discuss what they did to the tribe that saved them.
  • Michele Karl
    Bailey missed you so much! Thank you for the upload and excited for some MMM…always a loyal fan!
  • I haven’t even watched the full video yet, but I absolutely love that you’re talking about the Aztecs. I took a few art history classes and if you are truly interested in knowing more about them you should talk to Dr. Deil from TCU. She’s extremely knowledgeable and passionate about this subject and she’s also just very kind! Great source to talk to since the subject is barley being touched on in the academic areas:)
  • Brandie Manuel
    I love dark history 🖤 I miss MMM too but either way, I just need Bailey’s voice back in my life.
  • Both my daughter's and my name were part of the Aztec story...life goals to have us in a bailey video!
  • Sissy Lynn
    Lol, this episode would have scared my sister senseless (if she had any sense). We grew up on a small farm. However, corn was one of our major crops. It was the 80's and "Children of the Corn "was one of my favorite movies. She was terrified to go into our garden bc she was afraid that Malachaih or Isaac were in there. She was also afraid of the sugar cane crops bc I had convinced her that the "Sugar Cane Kids" were in there. She was even scared of our deep freezer where we stored the harvested corn.
