In this podcast episode, Ann welcomes Dr. Josh Bullock from Kingston University and Dr. Caroline Starkey from the University of Leeds to discuss their groundbreaking research project, “Weekday Worldviews: The Patrons, Promise and Payoff of Psychic Nights in England.” Dr. Bullock brings a sceptical perspective while Dr. Starkey is a firm believer in the psychic realm. Their collaboration sheds light on the profound experiences people have at pub psychic events, revealing a deeper connection beyond mere entertainment. Despite initial funding challenges, their project, now supported by the Templeton Religions Trust, explores the intersection of belief systems, well-being, and the paranormal, aiming to understand the significance of psychic culture in contemporary society.
