About This Episode

In our live show about dead people, Joe Nickell, paranormal investigator, talks to us from beyond our corporeal plane of existence—calling in from New Orleans, one of America’s supposedly most-haunted cities. Mary Roach, author of “Spook: Science Tackles the Afterlife”, provides a post-mortem on the history of spiritualism and modern-day ghost hunting techniques, while Phil Plait, the Bad Astronomer, devilishly dissects our favorite ghost movies.
