Helen Duncan was the last person in the UK ever to be convicted of witchcraft… in the mid-20th-century! Her story is one of fraud, fakery and – just possibly – actual communications with the dead!? Hear this fascinating and extremely unexpected story with special guest Nikki Druce, host of the Macabre London podcast!
Hear the full-length audio from Helen Duncan’s conversation with “Albert” here and hear Helen Duncan’s full “appearance” at a 1983 seance by medium Rita Goold here. (“Helen” begins speaking at 39:36, but the entire seance is a wild ride.)
Guest Nikki Druce is the creator and host of Macabre London, the original podcast about London’s gruesome history.
