    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.

    Episode 78: The Chicken Whackers Pt. 1

    Episode 78: The Chicken Whackers Pt. 1

    A man named Luke originally reached out to the show on behalf of his younger brother. His brother Keegan left home to hitchhike and travel the country, which eventually turned into living on the street for years. When the family finally got Keegan off the street, he had many stories, but there was one in particular that he was nervous and afraid to discuss, involving a mysterious group called "The Chicken Whackers".
    This story was very different from our normal submissions, which is why we liked it. This first part is mostly Keegan's backstory, what it's like living on the street, and how dangerous it can be.
    Part 2 will be out in just a few days.

My New Favorite Podcast

This is the show I’ve been looking for: real people talking about their experiences.The first episode had some technical difficulties with loud music but after that, it’s been PERFECT.

One of the very best out there

Genuinely love this podcast; it’s in my top 3. Found it thru Reddit when looking for similar podcasts to RR, as I truly enjoy the first hand story telling. I also like that most of the stories aren’t too scary so I don’t have to sleep with the lights on - bc there’s def podcasts that will go there. I’m a fan of this whole genre and probably dating myself when I say that I grew up listening to Coast to Coast AM - where ppl would call in to the radio show and tell their spooky stories. Jack is a great host, and doesn’t interject his opinions. This is the only podcast that I subscribe to the Patreon also. The extra content is well worth it. I have had odd things I can’t explain happen to me throughout my life and it feels like a community of like-minded people. We’re rational thinkers, but also, “want to believe.” Thank you, Jack.
