Interesting irony that this was first broadcast on April 30th. That's the anniversary date of The Church of Satan.

Not interesting, not ironic. Just a coincidence.

Makes one wonder how the commentator above would know the anniversary date of the Church of Satan? "Oh look, broadcast on April 30. That rings a bell. Ahh, Church of Satan. How can I forget." Another thought, I presume the commandments of the Church of Satan would be Always Lie! Thou shalt never tell the truth! The word truth is an abomination to the Devil. So obviously April 30 is a lie and the Church of Satan definitely wasn't founded on April 30.


It was founded April 30, 1966. Sometimes, The Truth hurts.

I enjoyed this episode. Partly because it’s unusual. I haven’t listened to every episode so I may be wrong, but regardless, I found this to be original and interesting.


One more thing. Around 15 minutes in, the actress emitted what sounded like a growl. Wow, pretty effective as well as creepy. Also, an interesting give and take between the angels.


I lied. One more, one more. Anyone know which actor played the arch-angel Michael? Very distinctive voice.


I think it’s Himan Brown. He appears occasionally in shows but never gets credited.


Actually I think it’s Mandel Kramer doing his arch-angel voice. Sounds like Himan Brown as Walt. I think he does the BBB commercial too.


Lillian Bryant, since the death of her husband, has become the hard-driving, ruthless head of his publishing house. She has alienated her son and daughter and the one man who really loved her. When she suffers a massive stroke, Lucifer and the Archangel Michael appear at the hospital, both wanting to claim her soul. It becomes a toss-up as the many good things she has done are revealed. It's possible they may offset the many aspects of her life people have considered evil.


I found this story compelling. A woman, who most considered despicable, begs for another chance. If she were able to do it all over, it would be different. But on her deathbed, as angels for heaven and hell fight over for the rights to her - It is revealed that many of her deeds that seemed so ruthless and evil, perhaps had another angle that seemed less diabolical. She wasn't depicted as a saint, but did what she thought was in the best interest of her children. Maybe flawed, but human.
