Hello dear listeners, and welcome back to another episode of The ODDentity Podcast on the PodMoth Media Network, your weekly foray into the weird, wonky, and sometimes downright spooky.

This week, I’ll introduce you to Daniel Dunglas Home, a Scottish physical medium with the ability to levitate, speak with the dead, and produce rapping and knocks in houses at will. His biographer Peter Lamont stated that he was one of the most famous men of his era.Harry Houdini described him as “one of the most conspicuous and lauded of his type and generation” and “the forerunner of the mediums whose forte is fleecing by presuming on the credulity of the public.” Home conducted hundreds of séances, which were attended by many eminent Victorians and was considered to be the foremost authority in the practice of mediumship.

I’d also like to take a moment to give a shout out to the other podcasts on the PodMoth Network. Supernatural Sisters, a spooky podcast with lots of interesting topics produced by two sisters, The Real Facts Podcast, a pod that uncovers the real truth about the real world, Leave the Lights On, a true crime/paranormal podcast, and The Lost Signal, a pod that features original audio plays of the pulp and macabre, and Watchers Movie Podcast, a pod that brings you spooky listener stories, and horror movie reviews! Links to these great podcasts can be found at podmoth.network.
