The "D" Word (demons, obvi) w/ Michelle Belanger NightMerica

    • True Crime

Ep. 51: Michelle Belanger, author of "The Dictionary of Demons" — along with 30 other books on the occult and paranormal — joins me to educate on the infamous entities. What is a demon? You think you know, but their origins are more complicated, and much older than you may think. Why do people not speak the name of a demon? (Especially when using something's name grants the user power over it — think not being afraid to say "Voldemort.") And how have a fascination with demons influenced modern paranormal TV (and a crop of armchair demonologists)? With the 10th anniversary expanded edition of her important book, Belanger (Paranormal State, Portals to Hell) challenges and informs the notion of demons, and we discuss how it even became the focus of a "heated" conversation with Lorraine Warren.
