Madge Gill (1882-1961) stands as an enigmatic figure in the world of art, revered as one of the most highly regarded self-taught artists of her time. Her artistic journey is as remarkable as it is mysterious, deeply intertwined with the spiritual realm. Gill's mediumistic art, created under the guidance of her spirit guide Myrninerest, transcends conventional boundaries, offering viewers a glimpse into the ethereal and the unseen. My Special Guest Is Vivienne Roberts Vivienne Roberts is the curator and archivist at The College of Psychic Studies in London, where she cares for their large collection of spirit inspired art, photographs and artefacts from 1850 to the present day. This unusual archive, along with the College’s specialist esoteric library, has offered Vivienne the opportunity to immerse herself in a wealth of primary material and has been instrumental in helping her curate a series of large exhibitions, including: Encounters with the Spirit World (2016), Art & Spirit: Visions of Wonder (2019), Strange Things Among Us (2021) and Creative Spirits (2022). Vivienne’s art specialism is the history of mediumistic art with particular attention to its women practitioners like Madge Gill. She has established the websites mediumisticart.com, georgianahoughton.com and madgegill.com and has published numerous articles and exhibition catalogue contributions. Vivienne is a member of the Visionary Women Research Group and the British Art Network. Madge Gill Born in 1882, Madge Gill's early life was marked by tragedy, losing her mother shortly after birth and being raised in an orphanage. Despite the challenges she faced, Gill's innate creativity found expression through art, which she pursued fervently throughout her life. It wasn't until later in adulthood that Gill's mediumistic abilities began to manifest, leading her to channel her artistic endeavours through the influence of Myrninerest. Working under Myrninerest's control, Gill's art took on a mystical quality, characterised by intricate patterns, symbolic imagery, and a sense of otherworldly beauty. Her pieces often feature intricate line work, bold contrasts, and a mesmerising depth that captivates viewers and invites contemplation. Throughout her life, Gill remained dedicated to her art, creating a vast body of work that continues to inspire and intrigue audiences worldwide. In this episode, you will be able to: 1. Explore what mediumistic art is. 2. Discover more about Madge Gill and her art.

In this episode, we embark on an exploration of real-life accounts and compelling anecdotes that offer profound insights into the realms beyond our physical existence. From individuals who have brushed with death and returned with astonishing tales to share, to remarkable instances of consciousness seemingly transcending the boundaries of life and death, we delve deep into the inexplicable. Prepare to be mesmerised as we delve into the stories of those who have stood on the brink of mortality, only to emerge with vivid recollections of encounters with light, tunnels, and profound encounters with deceased loved ones. We'll examine the common themes that emerge from these accounts and ponder the implications they hold for our understanding of the human experience. We'll also explore the fascinating phenomenon of out-of-body experiences, where individuals report observing their physical bodies from a vantage point outside themselves. What do these experiences reveal about the nature of consciousness and the potential for existence beyond the physical realm? We'll delve into the compelling accounts of individuals who recall past lives with astonishing detail, offering tantalising glimpses into the possibility of reincarnation and the continuity of the soul beyond death.

Originally constructed by Captain Powell, a wartime surgeon, the home was believed to carry a curse from its inception. Shortly after its completion, misfortune plagued the captain: bankruptcy, the loss of children to disease, and eventually, his own descent into madness. Passing through various owners, the mansion eventually came into the possession of its most illustrious inhabitant, Adelina Patti, the renowned opera singer from Madrid. After Adelina's demise within its walls, the once grand residence was repurposed as a tuberculosis hospital from the 1920s to the 1950s, witnessing further tragedies and the emergence of numerous resident spirits. Throughout its existence, Craig Y Nos Castle has amassed a collection of ghostly tales and haunted legends. My Special Guests Are: Jeremy Marsh the castle historian and tour guide.

Alongside luminaries Jenny Lind and Thérèse Tietjens, Patti endures as one of opera's most revered sopranos, celebrated for the crystalline purity of her voice and the mastery of her bel canto technique.

Ellen Hayward was born in 1838 at Arlingham on the east bank of the Severn in Gloucestershire.  By 1901, Ellen had given up dressmaking and named her occupation on the census as a herbalist. Over the following years she became well known locally as a ‘wise woman’ and a trusted source of herbal remedies. This was a fine line for her to tread as ‘wise’ men and women, or ‘cunning folk’ as they were also known, carried with them an aura of magic and spells, even in the early 20th century. It was this aspect which brought her to public attention (and to the notice of Parliament) when in 1905 a local man named John Markey accused her of practising witchcraft on his family. In May 1906, Cinderford ‘wise woman’ and herbal healer Ellen Hayward was tried for witchcraft at Littledean Magistrates Court in the Forest of Dean. My Special Guest Is Rachel Hayward Rachel grew up on the River Thames at Cookham Lock where her father was a Lock Keeper for nearly 30 years. Not only was this a unique experience but the house itself was haunted and was the topic of her book The Lock House Haunting. When she moved to Gloucestershire in the early 1990s it was not long before she became involved in the Paranormal again and as a result formed the team ROPE (Researchers of Paranormal Events. ) Ellen Hayward Ellen worked with her mother as a dressmaker and, after the deaths of her parents, lived with one of her brothers. Over the next several years Ellen bore three illegitimate children, the first, James, in 1862 when she was 24, the second, Edward, in 1871 and the third, Ruth, in 1875. There is no information about the father or fathers of any of the children bar Ellen’s application seeking support for Edward from one Edwin Hayward (no relation), also of Arlingham. The application was unsuccessful on the basis of ‘a lack of corroborative testimony’, that is, he denied it. Ellen’s story is one of difficulty and triumph, resilience and strength in the face of hardships.  In this episode, you will be able to: 1.

Embark on a mesmerising exploration of the paranormal with Evelyn Hollow, a double Academy Award-winning Scottish writer and paranormal investigator. Join us as Hollow explores the supernatural world and the field of paranormal investigating. We take a look into the quantum physics of anomalous phenomena, as she bridges the scientific and the mystical, shedding light on what she believes are connections between the paranormal and the quantum world. Additionally, we unravel the mysteries behind Scotland's moniker as the City of the Dead, as Hollow unravels the cultural influences, geographical elements, and historical events that contribute to the nation's reputation as a paranormal hotspot. Brace yourself for a riveting journey through the unknown. My Special Guest Is Evelyn Hollow Evelyn Hollow is a double academy award winning Scottish writer and paranormal psychologist. She is a former psychology lecturer and holds a Master of Research degree in Paranormal Psychology. She now consults as a paranormal psychologist and expert for various TV shows and podcasts — most recently the smash-hit BBC shows The Battersea Poltergeist , The Witch Farm, and Uncanny. She is also from the Warner Bros. TV shows Spooked Scotland and Spooked Ireland, which stream on Discovery Channel+. Evelyn gives guest talks on paranormal history and the quantum physics of anomalous phenomena. Quantum Physics And Anomalous Phenomena Quantum physics is a branch of physics that studies the behaviour of matter and energy at the smallest scales, involving particles such as atoms and subatomic particles.Some speculate a connection between quantum physics and anomalous phenomena, suggesting that the nature of reality at the quantum level might influence or explain inexplicable occurrences.  It introduces principles like superposition and entanglement, challenging classical notions.  Superposition:In quantum mechanics, particles like electrons can exist in multiple states simultaneously, known as superposition. For example, an electron can exist in multiple positions or spin states at the same time until a measurement is made, collapsing the superposition to a single state. Some propose that superposition could have implications for unexplained phenomena, suggesting that certain events might involve simultaneous, coexisting states or possibilities. However, establishing a concrete link remains speculative. Entanglement: When two or more particles become entangled, the state of one particle instantaneously influences the state of the other, regardless of the distance between them. This phenomenon violates classical notions of locality and implies a form of instantaneous connection between entangled particles. The instantaneous correlation between entangled particles has sparked speculation about potential connections to phenomena like telepathy or extrasensory perception.  In this episode, you will be able to: 1. Explore why Scotland is considered a paranormal hotspot. 2. Explore the possible connections between consciousness, quantum physics and anomalous phenomena.

"My Ghostly Footsteps," is the brainchild of the acclaimed filmmaker Guy Gilbert and available on Amazon Prime and other streaming platforms. As a young boy, Guy was no stranger to the supernatural. In fact, he was downright terrified when he heard a ghostly presence in a haunted house. Now, as an adult, he embarks on a courageous quest to unravel the mysteries of his own childhood. Was it a ghost that he heard, or was it merely the product of an overactive imagination?  In this 47-minute cinematic journey, Guy takes us on an intimate exploration of his own unsettling past. Instead of relying on the typical ghost-hunting formula that saturates the genre, he opts for a refreshingly personal approach. The lens of his camera becomes a portal to the other side, as he enlists the help of seasoned paranormal investigators to uncover the truth behind his ghostly encounter. Joining the podcast is director and producer Guy Gilbert; paranormal investigator, researcher and author Rachel Hayward as well as Karin Beasant (an experienced investigator, member of the Jamaica Inn Paranormal Team and assistant producer for My Ghostly Footsteps.) My Ghostly Footsteps "My Ghostly Footsteps" breaks away from the conventions of the genre, offering a departure from the formulaic approach we've grown accustomed to. Rather than a team of investigators chasing spectres for the camera, Guy Gilbert invites us into the heart of his own haunted history. In this episode, you will be able to: 1. Go behind the lens and take a closer look at the documentary. 2. Discover more about some of the locations including the George Jarvis School.

Farleigh Hungerford Castle, once a symbol of chivalric might, conceals within its shattered walls a tapestry of gruesome events and tragic tales. Picture a castle built in 1380, its turrets standing proud under the stewardship of Sir Thomas Hungerford, the First Speaker of the House of Commons.  But as the Wars of the Roses unfolded, disaster struck the Hungerford family, and the castle passed through the hands of kings and traitors alike. It witnessed a Lady imprisoned in the eerie Lady Tower, accused of unspeakable crimes, and a Lord beheaded for treachery and sorcery. Anthropoid Coffins In the crypt beneath the marvellous castle chapel are eight sinister-looking lead caskets. Known technically as anthropoid coffins, they contain the remains of Sir Edward Hungerford III (d.1648) and the family of his successor, Sir Edward Hungerford IV (the ‘Spendthrift’), who had to sell Farleigh in 1686. These coffins contain embalmed bodies, pickled in spirit, and their body-shaped forms enabled the physical remains to be kept together after death, and preserved intact, ready for resurrection at the sounding of the Last Trumpet. In this episode, you will be able to: 1. Examine the history of the castle. 2. Discover some of the dark history, ghosts and macabre practices associated with the castle.

In the early modern era, a paradoxical tapestry of seemingly impossible phenomena unfolded alongside the rise of scepticism, atheism, and empirical science, challenging the prevailing religious beliefs in the paranormal. In this podcast we dive into this intricate cultural landscape, exploring how a society increasingly immersed in scientific thinking grappled with events deemed impossible by its leading intellectuals. Levitating saints and flying witches were integral aspects of early modern life, woven into the fabric of history alongside pivotal scientific revelations. Drawing from a wealth of firsthand accounts, Carlos Eire focuses on extraordinary cases involving levitation, bilocation, witchcraft, and demonic possession, challenging established notions about the evolving boundaries between the natural and supernatural during the transition to modernity. Through compelling case studies involving figures like St. Teresa of Avila and St. Joseph of Cupertino, Eire prompts readers to envision a world where reality and the supernatural held a different relationship. The questions he poses about the determination of "impossibility" within cultural contexts and the limits of scientific observation resonate, offering valuable insights and lessons for our contemporary understanding of reality. My Special Guest Is Michelle Carlos Eire Carlos Eire was born in Havana in 1950 and came to the U.S. in 1962 without his parents, as one of the 14,000 unaccompanied Cuban refugee children ferried to Miami by the Pedro Pan airlift. After living in various foster homes for three and a half years, he reunited with his mother in Chicago, where he worked full-time jobs while attending high school and college. His father was never allowed to leave the island and died without ever seeing his family again. He is now the T. L. Riggs Professor of History and Religious Studies at Yale University, and he specialises in the social, intellectual, religious, and cultural history of late medieval and early modern Europe, with a focus on both the Protestant and Catholic Reformations; the history of popular piety; and the history of the supernatural, and the history of death. Unravelling the Mysteries of Bilocation and Levitation Bilocation refers to the purported ability of an individual to be physically present in two distinct locations simultaneously, defying the conventional constraints of space and time. On the other hand, levitation involves the seemingly impossible act of defying gravity, as individuals or objects appear to rise into the air without any apparent external force. Both concepts challenge our understanding of the natural world and have been subjects of fascination, sparking debates between sceptics and those intrigued by the mysteries of the paranormal. In this episode, you will be able to: 1. Examine why levitation and bilocation were considered impossible. 2. What the significance of these impossible miracles were referencing examples. 3. Explore the historical landscape of these impossible miracles.

The ancient Egyptians held a steadfast belief in an afterlife that transcended the confines of disappointment, loss, and distress. Contrary to the notion of "you can't take it with you," the prevailing perspective for much of Egyptian history was encapsulated by the sentiment "you keep it forever." The enduring concept envisioned a paradise, The Field of Reeds, on the other side of death—a continuation of earthly life, yet free from the shackles of sorrow. This profound view, while subject to fluctuations across different eras, remained remarkably constant. The paradise beyond was a sanctuary where all that was lost in the mortal realm could be rediscovered. Coinciding with this vision of the afterlife was an unwavering understanding of disembodied spirits—ghosts. Unlike the evolving perceptions of the afterlife, the belief in ghosts persisted unchanged from the earliest evidence throughout ancient Egyptian history. Ghosts were considered as tangible and authentic as any other facet of existence, a testament to the enduring and deeply rooted spiritual convictions of the ancient Egyptians. My Special Guest Is Michelle Keeley-Adamson Michelle is a Historian & Writer from Liverpool UK. She has a background in Egyptology and her talks and writing focus on the reception of ancient Egypt during the Victorian era (commonly referred to as ‘egyptomania’). Her main research areas cover Egyptian revival graves in Victorian England and the life of Egyptologist and Architect, Joseph Bonomi Jr. Harmony Beyond the Veil: Ma'at and the Imperative of Proper Burial Central to Egyptian culture was the sacred principle of ma'at, an intricate dance of harmony and balance woven into the fabric of everyday life. Among the myriad expressions of ma'at, the proper burial of the deceased held particular significance. Egyptians perceived life as a unidirectional journey, commencing at birth and culminating in the afterlife. To ensure the soul's tranquil transition, meticulous provisions were made through tomb paintings, inscriptions, and statuary. These artefacts served as a spiritual tether, inviting the soul to benignly revisit the earthly realm while urging the spirit to hasten its departure to the afterlife. However, the appearance of a ghost, especially its interaction with the living, signalled a disruption in the natural order. This disturbance typically stemmed from a spirit's discontent with its body's burial, the condition of the tomb, or a perceived lack of respectful remembrance. Ghostly visitations were viewed as a tangible manifestation of imbalance, compelling the living to rectify the disturbances and restore ma'at, ensuring both the departed and the living coexisted in harmonious accord. In this episode, you will be able to: 1. Examine how we know about ancient Egyptian ghost stories. 2. Look at the idea of what a ghost was in Ancient Egypt. 3. Take a closer look at examples of hauntings and what ancient Egyptians did when haunted.

In 1917, in the quaint village of Cottingley, England, two young cousins, Elsie Wright and Frances Griffiths, captured the world's imagination with a series of captivating photographs featuring themselves alongside ethereal, winged creatures. Claiming these images were a window into the fairy realm, the girls ignited a spirited debate between believers and sceptics. Join us on a journey to uncover the mesmerising story behind the Cottingley Fairies, exploring the enduring allure of a mystical narrative that continues to captivate both the young and the young at heart. My Special Guest Is Merrick Burrow Merrick Burrow is an academic and literary scholar, mainly focusing on 19th and early 20th Century literature and culture. He has a long-standing interest in Victorian and Edwardian popular fiction (adventure stories, detective fiction, gothic, scientific romance, spy thrillers, etc.) and especially the ways that these cultural forms show societies adapting to the emergence of new technologies. More recently, this has developed into an examination of the theme of deception culture since the early 19th century. Important to Merrick’s research is the idea that modernity is driven by a desire for enlightenment, which supports scientific discovery and the production of new technologies. But these technologies, he argues, have always been haunted by the possibility that they may become tools of deception. Arthur Conan Doyle Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, a literary luminary of the Victorian and Edwardian eras, left an indelible mark on the world as the ingenious mind behind the legendary detective Sherlock Holmes. Born in Edinburgh in 1859, Doyle's prolific career spanned beyond mystery fiction into the realms of science fiction, historical novels, and non-fiction. A physician by training, he blended scientific inquiry with a keen sense of storytelling, creating characters that transcended the pages of his novels. Despite Holmes's towering legacy, Doyle's life was a tapestry of multifaceted interests, including spiritualism and public service. In this episode, you will be able to: 1. Examine the events surrounding news of the Cottingley Fairies. 2. Examine some of the factors that led to an unintentional hoax. 3. Take a closer look at the protagonists involved.

The Peoria State Hospital was, from the very beginning, built to be an institution unlike anything else of its kind. Opened in 1902, the Peoria State Hospital was initiated by the work of the Peoria Women’s League, who had seen the kinds of “treatments” that were being used to treat the mentally ill at the time. They knew there had to be a better way to house and help these people. Joining me to explore the haunting history of the hospital is Sylvia Shults as we explore the hospital, some of the paranormal reports and the story of Rhoda Derry whose grave epitaph reads: “They built this place of asylum so that no other human would suffer as you. You taught us to love and feel compassion toward the less fortunate. May you find peace and warmth in God’s arms.” My Special Guest Is Sylvia Shults Sylvia Shults is the author of several books of paranormal nonfiction, including Gone on Vacation: Haunted Zoos, Museums, and Amusement Parks, the award-winning Days of the Dead: A Year of True Ghost Stories, and Grave Deeds And Dead Plots. She sits in dark, spooky, haunted places so you don't have to. She has spent the last twenty-five years working at a public library, slowly smuggling out enough words in her pockets week after week to build a book of her own. She is the writer, narrator, director, and producer of the true ghost story podcast Lights Out With Sylvia Shults, available on any podcast platform, and on YouTube. Sylvia loves hearing from her readers, especially when they have spooky stories of their own to share with her. She can be found at ⁠www.sylviashults.wordpress.com⁠, and on Facebook at the pages for Fractured Spirits, Lights Out, and Ghosts of the Illinois River. Doctor Zeller Opened under the name “Illinois Asylum for the Incurable Insane,” Dr. Zeller petitioned to have the name changed to "Illinois General Hospital" and later changed to “Peoria State Hospital” as he did not believe anyone to be “incurable.” Dr. Zeller wanted to run a new kind of institution which treated people with mental illnesses humanely. He took all of the bars off the doors and windows, removed all types of restraint, and instituted new, holistic types of therapies. Dr. Zeller was considered mad for refusing to lock his patients up or tie them to beds, but his open-door policy meant his patients were treated with human kindness and empathy.   In this episode, you will be able to: 1.
