Seances R Us BSP: Believer Skeptic Podcast

    • Social Sciences

We have a very special live episode for you recorded for the Arizona Theatre Matters 2022 Festival. In it, we talk all about seances (as if it wasn’t obvious from our last minisode). First, Cody talks about Helen Duncan, the last woman tried as a witch in Britain for talking to dead soldiers during WW2. Then, Chris discusses Mae West, the Hollywood starlet fascinated by seances. Next, Cody shares the story of a man who sets up a fake seance only to have the real thing thrown in his face. Finally, Chris talks about a crazy seance set up in a haunted Toys R Us…You read that right. Our drinks were whatever the heck we wanted to make for this special.
