Edinburgh Horror Fest and the history of seances
Ash Pryce and Theresa Dewa join us to discuss this year’s Edinburgh Horror Festival. We talk about this year’s programme, including everything from horror stand-up comedy and magic to theatre, movies, drag, poetry, Rocky Horror Picture Show and guided tours.
We also discuss the history of seances, mediumship and spiritualist churches plus whether magicians tricks inspired faux-seances or if the charlatans inspired magic techniques used today. Plus we discuss the top horror movies of all time.
The Edinburgh Horror Festival runs from October 24th to November 3rd.
