24. Spectral Skull Session

About Podcast We explore claims about the occult, supernatural, and paranormal from an analytic standpoint. We're open to the existence of a world beyond the five senses, and we dismiss that dogmatic skepticism that insists that any story about the unexplained has to reduce to hallucination or swamp gas, but we're not committed to any particular theory or philosophy about what the paranormal is. And we realize that, whatever is out there, the answer is likely to be more complicated than any existing model or theory. What we bring to the table is small 's' skepticism.
