DISPATCH: Talking to the dead with "American Hysteria"

This week we are proud to present an episode of AMERICAN HYSTERIA, by long-time Euphomet contributor Chelsey Weber-Smith

For their season two premiere, American Hysteria explored the rich American history of Spiritualism, a massive 80-year trend of popular culture lasting from the Civil War to the Jazz age in which mediums began speaking to, and then speaking for, the spirits of the dead. A sudden craze of magical, fun, gross, and sexy parlor room séances swept the nation, materializing during the awe-inspiring age of invention and scientific inquiry. But the movement also had a political side; for the first time women were given a voice for social and political change, a voice that just happened to be channeled from beyond the veil. How they used that otherworldly voice, however, was both revolutionary and problematic, much like the progressive movements we experience today.

American Hysteria is written, produced, and hosted by Chelsey Weber-Smith

Assistant produced by Derrick Smith

Produced and edited by Clear Commo Studios

Voice acting by Will Rogers

Research assisted by Riley Smith
