Ouija – I Want To Believe

Most people have heard of, seen or used a Ouija Board, but does it actually work? Could it really summon negative or positive spirits that communicate with the living? Or is there more to it?

Show Notes

Join us as we discover where the Ouija Board came from, the wild beginnings of spiritualism, superstition, seances, and pop culture influences by the Ouija, while discussing personal experiences and scientific studies that prove the Ouija Board works – just perhaps not in the most anticipated way. A true Mulder vs. Scully experience.
