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?

Yuletide greetings to our skeptical and not-so-skeptical listeners!

We just got home from a Winter Solstice celebration, so this episode we will be pouring ourselves some mulled wine and mulling over the topic of Wicca. Give us a break- tis the season for terrible puns.

Rebecca’s an ex-witch and Cat’s maybe on the verge of joining her local coven. We discuss the history of Wicca, what it means to be a practicing witch today and if it’s possible to be an atheist witch.
