The Fox Sisters: Spiritualism Heroes or Fakers? | 264

Kids hearing noises? Talking to the Devil? Popping their toe joints? If you answered yes to any of these questions then you are in luck! They could have an exciting life in store for them. A life of fame and travel just like the Fox sisters of New York. Why did these 1800’s small town Methodists turn to a life of talking to spirits? Just where does the term Mesmerize come from? Why is KYLE such a good DJ? We tackle all of this and more with the help of none other than Mr. Blurry Photos himself, David Flora on the podcast that doesn’t always talk sisters, but when we do, they sure as hell better be known for rapping - Hysteria 51
