Let’s Talk to the Dead – The Fox Sisters and the Birth of American Spiritualism

We have all played with a Ouija board, but few of us truly think we are contacting the dead. But in mid 19th, century two young girls, the Fox Sisters, were doing just that. These two women would inspire the birth of Spiritualism in the United States that would incite a national frenzy. But fame came at a price, as it always does. In this episode, Jen will tell their tale of fame, seances, alcoholism and shame.
