    Wendy & Solveig [Patreon Preview]

    Wendy & Solveig [Patreon Preview]

    Last year, during the first interview with Solveig, I learned that she had a reading with Wendy coming up. This was early 2023, and I was still just getting to know Wendy (the clairvoyant from the "Ball of Light" episodes) and having trouble wrapping my head around her in general. Then I met Solveig, and it was just so much to process at once. I thought it would be interesting to sort of test them both by recording this reading and ensuring that Wendy knew nothing about Solveig or her story going into it. I also wanted to do this because there were things Wendy had told me in the past that were very similar to some of the things Solveig had told me.

    Interview with Shannon Taggart

    Interview with Shannon Taggart

    Shannon Taggart is an American photographer and artist known for her work exploring themes of spirituality, mysticism, and the supernatural. She is particularly recognized for her book Séance which documents the practice of Spiritualism, a religious movement that believes in the possibility of communication with the spirits of the dead.
    Although she originally began as an artist with no interest in the paranormal, Taggart's fascination with Spiritualism began in 2001 when she started photographing in Lily Dale, New York, a town known for its psychic community.
    If you want to hear more conversation between Jack & Shannon Taggart, we will be posting a second part on the Otherworld Patreon shortly.

Other world review

Jack Wagner does a great job. Very interesting and easy to listen to. Totally recommend it!!

Sleepy Conscience ,

Love his approach

He just lets people tell their stories. He doesn’t editorialize or try to convince you of anything. Whether you believe the stories or not doesn’t really matter. They’re super creepy and fun to listen to regardless.

mrstrawberryhead ,

So good!

Been loving this podcast - the Sebastian Junger one was special. When that Prince Rama hit at the end it really sent me!
