283: Special Halloween Edition 2017

Mormon Discussion Halloween Edition.  Today we sit down with Zach Derr and discuss ghost and spirit stories within Mormonism.  We talk about how some of these are explainable but that others seem to be beyond explanation.  We talk of myth and our need to give explanations for things we otherwise can’t explain.  We talk about how the information age has in only a few decades made us much less superstitious and much more cynical when it comes to the supernatural.  After all that we conclude that even in an information age, some of these stories are still creepy and can’t be dismissed out of hand.
