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

  • 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) 🙃
  • "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 😆

    I lost my dog a week ago, and his name was Percy...watching this episode really made me smile 🥰
    Percy was my best friend so it was cute hearing you say how you love Percy 😅
  • 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! ❤
  • 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. 😂

    Bailey looking like a queen she is, sitting on that throne <3
  • mythraw
    I LOOOOVE THAT YOU ALREADY TRIED TO SAY "QUETZALCOATL" 💕💕💕 Even for mexican ppl it's kinda hard to say words in Nahuatl, so don't worry queen. All of our ancient Aztec, Mexicas, Seris, Yaquis, and native gods had really har names.

    As mexican, I just can applause you for that 💕👏

    "And what's more powerful than strength?"
    Me: "...corn?"
    "Intellienge"
    "..oh that makes sense"

    Hey Bailey! The Nahuatl language can be really tricky to pronounce, so great job! The tl sound in Nahuatl is pronounced by pressing the sides of your tongue against your teeth and expelling air. Basically, pretend like you are going to pronounce the tl sound in little, but press air through the sides of your teeth. 🧡
  • Here we are just naming our kin after our loved ones when this whole time we could have been wearing their skin! 🤦🏽‍♀️ I have failed our ancestors. 🥺
  • Brandie Manuel
    I love dark history 🖤 I miss MMM too but either way, I just need Bailey’s voice back in my life.
  • I would LOVE a season dedicated just to ancient civilizations, that would be soooo cool!
  • Richelle Jose
    We missed you, Bailey. Thanks for your hard work! Loved the episode!
  • Ren197
    I remember the time before we had microwaves. We used to buy those tin foil pans of popcorn you held over the stove burners, fun times!😂
  • Yeti Voice
    Delightfully strange person, very odd stories, and brilliant delivery. One of the best channels. Big fan.
  • Ebony Mystique
    Great to have you back Bailey!! My grandmother used to make corn liquor. It was so potent. I couldn't hang. 🥴
  • L Lane
    As someone who is half Mexican...I can say that my ancient ancestors the Aztecs were the original "children of the corn" 😉😁🍿
  • Anna McCormick
    I missed you!!!!!! I’m so glad you’re back! I hope your time away was super restful! We love you!!!!
