    Episode 10: Sean and Gina

    Episode 10: Sean and Gina

    Sean Johns and his wife Gina are both Romani, an ethnic group many people know by term the derogatory term "Gypsy". The Romani people are a very misunderstood and persecuted group of people, and are also extremely spiritual. Sean and Gina are also 5th Generation psychics—something that is handed down from generation to generation and is deeply intertwined into their heritage, to the point that it is just how they see the world and could not imagine it any other way. 

    They run a psychic shop in the Chicago/Indiana area and basically have to help anyone and everyone who comes through the door with a problem other experts can't solve.  When people are dealing with something they can't bring to the police or to a priest, they come to Gina and Sean. These two have seen a lot of wild stuff, but one day a woman walked in that gave them a bad enough feeling that they had to ask her to leave. That is where their story begins, and it takes many twists and turns from there. This conversation ended up going so long that I decided to turns this into a two part series. I think by the end of the episode you will understand why.

    Episode 6: Kareem and the Djinn

    Episode 6: Kareem and the Djinn

    Kareem emailed Otherworld months ago saying that he was sexually assault by a Djinn (a mysterious entity known in Islamic culture). Initially I thought this email was a joke... but by pure chance I met Kareem in person and realized that the story was very serious.
