S5E1 – Spiritualism Down Under with Bec Hill – Part 1

Spiritualism Down Under with Bec Hill – Part 1

James and Alasdair are joined by the hilarious (and crafty) comedian Bec Hill.

Series 5 (series 5) begins with tales of Australian apparitions, antipodean seances and the scariest monster of all… Scotsmen. With cameos from Arthur Conan Doyle, the pseudonymous Demonax and the Wizard Bombardier of Ballarat.

And this is only part 1! Join us next week for the levitating Mrs Guppy, the unsettlingly buxom Katie King and (inevitably) the scores.

Check out Bec’s YouTube channel:

And her podcast A Problem Squared:

And join… us… at the Cheerful Earful Podcast Festival on October 31st:
