Jason Suran wants you to know he can’t talk to the dead. Then he will convince you that he can. In Suran’s show, The Other Side, he recreates a theatrical type of séance that departed American culture almost a century ago. And he believes that experiencing the way people tried to contact the departed can reveal a lot about our deepest desires and fears. Plus David Jaher, author of The Witch of Lime Street, discusses how séances became all the rage in America until Harry Houdini made it his life’s mission to debunk them.
You may be wondering why most of my back catalog is only available on Stitcher Premium. Last year, the network I used to be on folded, and I was fortunate to be picked up the network Midroll, which provides financial support for my show. Midroll also owns the app Stitcher, and part of my deal with them is that any episode older than 6 months will be available exclusively on Stitcher Premium -- and every episode on Stitcher Premium will be ad-free. This helps me continue to create and produce the show because once I switched to Midroll, the previous ads from my old network either didn't generate profits anymore or disappeared from the episodes, and people discovering my back catalog has been an important part of my income.
10 extra episodes from my back catalog will also be available on all platforms, and you can get the rest on Stitcher Premium for just $5 a month, and you can pay month-to-month. If you sign up at https://www.stitcher.com/premium and use the promo code “Imaginary,” the first 30 days is a free trial. Plus, the revenue I get from those subscriptions will help make this podcast financially sustainable.
Thank you for your understanding and support.
