Anton LaVey (Founder of the Church of Satan)

Anton LaVey was a weird dude.  He worked as a carny, walked his leopard around the neighborhood, had a cartoonish look, and then - founded the Church of Satan… In this episode of AHC, we’ll take a look at LaVey’s life, his claims to fame, and how he started his church.  We’ll also look to see if he was a complete freaking liar as well.  Enjoy this “dark” episode of AHC Podcast.
