    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.

So good!

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

Good stories

I really like the stories and the research is well done, however, the host is very annoying! He talks like everything is a question, pauses after every sentence, and uses that valley girl tone throughout. And it almost sounds like he’s not sure of what he’s talking about. He needs to introduce the story, keep it short, work on not using "like" every other word and maybe not sound so disinterested. Maybe have someone else host? It ruins the vibe. I always fast forward the first part of the show to get past his ramblings. Anyway, host is horrible and annoying, the STORIES are fantastic!

Promising

This is a good podcast, good format and host. Look forward to more! That said, ep 74 (haunted doll) was awful to listen to. The main young woman had such weird inflections and literally just kept repeating herself. It was so frustrating, we finally just turned that episode off.
