    Bonus Episode 21 - The Exorcism of Anna Ecklund

    Bonus Episode 21 - The Exorcism of Anna Ecklund

    During the Middle Ages, demonic possession was the go to explanation for erratic or different behaviour within society.  The treatment for this was exorcism.  When reviewing cases of possession from the past, experts have found traits that lean towards affected individuals having personality disorders, mood disorders, and other mental illnesses.  


     


    But sometimes, there are cases that makes one stop and think…maybe sometimes it isn’t just mental illness.  Is it possibly something more?


     


    Just a little heads up here…in this episode we talk about mental health, violence, and child abuse.  Listener discretion is advised.

Entertaining

I find this podcast entertaining, but i really struggle with the narrators inability to pronounce words or names correctly (for example “drowning” she pronounces it “drownding” It drives me crazy! Honestly Its distracting. Or any time she tries to pronounce Massachusetts. The stories are good, and interesting, but she often uses incorrect wording and punctuation that makes it confusing while shes speaking. For example she will say something like “due to that the man left before anyone could see him” which maybe should be said “due to the fact that the man left before anyone could see him.”

Great podcast for your paranormal history lovers

During work I have ten hour shifts to fill with podcasts. During October I wanted fun haunted stories and this one was an immediate favorite. I binged all episodes back to back and now look forward to the newest weekly posts. Such a good podcast

Great podcast!

I love her voice it’s so soothing! I saw a few reviews about her pronunciations ….. first of all she is from Canadá and different provinces will have different accents or pronunciations ! I’m from the states have traveled all over the U.S. you would be amazed at some of the accents and pronunciations! So obviously get out and visit other places and see how she’s actually rad and super great at story telling!!
