Mediumship: Talking to the Dead?

In this episode Cat and Rebecca discuss their experience attending a Spiritualist Church and witnessing Jackie the medium seemingly contact the dead. Is Jackie a Psychic Vampire, a conduit to the other side or something else entirely?

We discuss the history of spiritualism and mediumship and explore how people fake psychic abilities. Rebecca has a go at cold reading one of Cat’s friends and we are left with the question, is any of this stuff for real?

Exploring esoteric, paranormal and spiritual topics from two completely different perspectives it’s The Seeker and The Skeptic.
