Though I've always been a skeptic, I love the history of spiritualism and paranormal phenomenons and their research, this was a fun way to learn more!

Listened to this episode today. Very interesting. Lucrezia is a distant grandparent of mine from her marriage to Alphonso d'Este. I am going to have someone in my family see if we are related to Brooke Shields which would be so awesome.

It might sound strange but I proposed marriage to my wife while sitting on that little bench in front of TSL. She is a very special person to us. Nice show btw, excellent research...

Indigenous Australians, not Aborigines, also you might want to do your research, especially your claim about not farming, go read Bruce Pascoe literature

Very enjoyable podcast. Been listening for a month now and have enjoyed every episode. As a Halloween fan, this was particularly appealing.

Interesting topic, but too much attention to viewing things from a 21st century feminist perspective with the usual myopic hand wringing at the end. Being apolitical is not a bad thing at times.
