Delmarva Today 06-11-2021 Part Two

Wilson’s guest on Delmarva Today is The New Yorker staff writer Casey Cep. They are discussing spiritualism in Cep’s article “Kindred Spirits” in the May 31st issue of The New Yorker. “Almost a third of Americans say they have communicated with someone who has died,” Casey Cep tells us, “and they collectively spend more than two-billion dollars a year for psychic services on platforms old and new. Instagram, Facebook, Tik-Tok, television, whatever the medium, there’s a medium.” Why this increased interest in spiritualism, and what need does it meet among the public today?
