    The Pollock Twins // 58 // Reincarnation

    John and Florence Pollock had two daughters, Joanna, and Jacqueline.  The girls were hit by a car and killed when they were very young, but their father always believed they would be reincarnated.  Florence did get pregnant again and had twin girls named Gillian and Jennifer.  The family noticed that the twins had the same birthmarks as their older sisters and began acting just like them.  Is it possible that the girls were reincarnated?  Many people are very skeptical of this case, but the family saw too many similarities that they couldn't ignore.

I'm on the fence

First I want to say I love the podcast art and name.

I'm on the fence because there is too much banter. I am good with a little or opinions, but there is too much wasted time at the beginning of the episodes. I don't mind an upbeat podcast because I don't expect everyone to sound all gloom and doom, but the side conversations are distracting. I haven't learned the host name, but one of the duo has great delivery. I started with the Powell episode.
