Ghoul on Ghoul

Apr 11, 2019

Amanda and Sarah ascend to different planes for an episode about astral projection and a famous spiritualist. Amanda takes a cue from Episode 45: Frau Diquefardt to discuss the life and times of Ada Goodrich Freer, a medium, psychical researcher, and all-around hustler whose legacy was determined by sexist f*ckboy historians. Sarah explains some of the spiritual and scientific beliefs, and half-baked theories surrounding the phenomenon known as astral projection. Other subjects covered include a novelty fish lawyer, an unlikely public radio DJ, and a sex dream with the mayor. 


It's a Netflix twofer: Sarah recommends watching Russian Doll, while Amanda recommends watching season two of The OA.
