Ghost Church by Jamie Loftus

quote [ In this limited series, Jamie Loftus investigates and interrogates American spiritualism, a century-old tradition of communing with the dead that takes place in camps full of mediums across the country. Who is drawn to these camps, how did the religion come together, and why are the tarot card readers and the seance-havers fighting? Ghost Church is a look at grief, religion, and loneliness, with on-site reporting and interviews with everyone from spiritualist psychics to Protestant pastors to a very lonely carnival employee. ]

I was not expecting to enjoy this as much as her other podcasts, but it was great and I highly recommend it. Jamie has a lot of empathy and understanding for all of the subjects but also deals with a lot of difficult aspects as well

A Messy Utopia Is All We Might Get

quote [ The neo-utopian techno-optimists have programs (boy, do they have programs). The quondam utopian dreamers, meanwhile, gently tend the glowing embers of ? what? Not hope for the future, perhaps, but rather an ongoing impulse toward justice, caritas, beauty. ]

About mental ways of dealing with transformation. The one by Ailton Krenak sounds interesting.
