A monthly series of provocative and useful dialogues with artists, writers, filmmakers, and scholars who broaden our understanding of the ill-considered and the unknown, hosted by PEN Award-winning historian Mitch Horowitz

Photographer Shannon Taggart has travelled the world documenting the practices and rituals of talking to the dead. She has probably photographed more mediums, séances, and Spiritualist ceremonies, on different continents, than any other living artist. Shannon and Mitch will discuss why our current categories of evaluating the reality or fakery of mediumistic activity are inadequate to the phenomena, and how we can embark on a new, fresh, and meaningful way of understanding claims of the paranormal, from the production to ectoplasm to the appearance of ghostly orbs.

Shannon Taggart is a photographer, researcher and Programmer-in-Residence at the Morbid Anatomy Museum. Her photographs have been exhibited and featured internationally including the publications TIME, New York Times Magazine, Discover, Reader's Digest and Newsweek. Currently, she is working on a project about mediumship and the religion of Spiritualism. For more, visit shannontaggart.com.

Your Morbid Academy host MITCH HOROWITZ is a writer and publisher with a lifelong interest in man's search for meaning. The PEN Award-winning author of Occult America and One Simple Idea, Mitch has written on everything from the war on witches to the secret life of Ronald Reagan for The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Salon, and Time. The Washington Post says Mitch "treats esoteric ideas and movements with an even-handed intellectual studiousness that is too often lost in today's raised-voice discussions." Mitch hosts the web series ORIGINS: SUPERSTITIONS, directed by Morbid Anatomy filmmaker-in-residence RONNI THOMAS.
