The Afterlife (S1E14)

the heavens

Today on the Placebo Magick Podcast we discuss some ways in which imagining a (fictional) afterlife can prove helpful, and we propose a new definition of "soul" or "spirit" entirely compatible with a skeptical, scientific worldview. The Spell of the Week is a ritual to summon the presence of a deceased loved one into an object.

The Placebo Magick Podcast explores why and how to cast spells, brew potions, commune with spirits, and hack the human brain all while understanding that magick isn't real. Magick is a metaphor, and metaphor is magickal!
