'The World's Spookiest Podcast'

Richard MacLean Smith. Unexplained: Based on the 'World's Spookiest Podcast'. Sceptre (3 Oct. 2019)
What can a case of demonic possession in 1970's Germany teach us about free will? What might we learn about how we construct reality from the case of a poltergeist in the Fens? And what can a supposed instance of reincarnation in Middlesbrough tell us about how we develop a concept of the self?

Taking incidents once thought of as supernatural or paranormal and questioning whether radical ideas in science might provide a new but equally extraordinary explanation, Unexplained asks what real-life unexplained events can reveal of our unique human experience.
