Very enjoyable listen

I am a Skeptic but like all good skeptics I find it valuable to explore and to try and understand those who have different views to mine. I chose to try this podcast because I looked like it would offer some of these other perspectives. Before this I tried listening to Mysterious Universe to get an idea of what 'alternative' ideas are out there but I found it very frustrating because they would explain and discuss various outlandish accounts (haunted furniture, alien posessions...you name it.) but would offer very little in the way of alternative explanations or possible psychology behind these baffling stories. Clearly there are many people out there who genuinly believe they have access to a spiritual realm. Being passionate about psychology I am always searching for meaning behind people's behaviour and experiences and this podcast offers this perspective in a non dismissive and more generous way than some other purely skeptic podcasts seem to do. The narrators are personable and humble and easy to listen to but perhaps most importantly - fun! I hope they carry on making episodes. I'm looking forwrard to hearing more. The only thing that has thrown me a bit so far is that the Seeker sometimes talks more like a Skeptic! As a skeptic this is fine by me but I wonder what a more extreme 'seeker' might feel.
