Betwixt The Sheets: The History of Sex, Scandal & Society



Ep. 56

Everybody hold hands! We're going for a seance!

How long have we've been trying to talk to dead people for? And have we ever actually been speaking to the dead or just to somebody’s clicky toe joints?

In today's episode Kate is joined by Lisa Morton, author of 'Calling the Spirits: A History of Seances', to talk about the long history of spiritualism, its believers and its fraudsters!

Produced by Charlotte Long and Sophie Gee. Mixed by Thomas Ntinas.
