Case 005: The Silicon Valley Witch Trials

Season 1, Episode 5,  Feb 25, 2020, 06:00 AM

Warning this episode contains witchcraft! Ricky and Tony look into the strange case of whether rapper Azaelia Banks was asked by Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to make an amulet to ward off evil.

The latest case for Ricky and Tony involves the crazy world of SIlicon Valley and whether rapper Azaelia Banks was asked by Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to make an amulet to ward off evil spirits, specifically, ISIS.                 

The story goes that in 2016, the Twitter boss sent some of his beard shavings to Banks so that she could make him an amulet that would protect him from ISIS in return for her promoting one of his apps. Firstly did this actually happen and if so does Azaelia Banks actually have the necessary magical powers?

To try and crack this strange case Ricky & Tony need some real experts, who better than an actual witch, ‘witch-for-hire’ Katrina Rusbold and someone who knows all about the strange goings on in Silicon Valley, undercover reporter and author Corey Pein.

It’s one of the more unusual cases to land on the desks of the Pop Detectives but if anyone can solve it, it’s these two!
