It's the start of our second year and kicking it off with a look at the original mystifying oracle,The Ouija Board! Host Eric Dwinnells and guest co-host Tom Cole discuss the not-so-spooky history of the board itself including where the idea came from, why people thought it worked, the strange way in which it's creators received a patent on their creation, and why so many people have a problem with Ouija boards today. We'll also hear what happened when Eric showed the board to a Wiccan friend of his.
Christian groups, pagans, and many occultist all warn against use of Ouija boards. Can these boards, sold at Toys R Us, really be used to talk to the dead or conjure demons?!? Tonight, Eric and Tom will risk their souls to find out! At the end of the episode, they will break out a board and attempt to make contact themselves!
They'll also discuss true crime cases involving Ouija boards including two separate cases where the murderers claim they killed their victims because the board told them to.
We'll also dip into the listener mailbag to hear what you fans have to say and discuss pranks used to annoy significant others! All this and more on tonight's Spooky A S!
