About This Show
Criminal is a podcast about crime. Not so much the "if it bleeds, it leads," kind of crime. Something a little more complex. Stories of people who've done wrong, been wronged, and/or gotten caught somewhere in the middle.

Episode 79: Secrets and Séances
7 days ago
Helen Duncan was a famous medium who travelled around Britain in the 1940s performing séances. She claimed to speak to the dead, and even produce physical manifestations of their spirits. But when she seemed to know wartime secrets about the whereabouts of military ships, she caught the attention of MI5. And in 1944, a few months before D-day, she was convicted under a 200-year-old "Witchcraft Act". Criminal is a proud member of Radiotopia from PRX. If you haven't already, please review us on iTunes!

All Things Real
I love listening to this show! The topics are so diverse and odd. I think the best part is that it is REAL life stories and you go to the extents of reaching out to the people who are related to the story or have a vast knowledge of the subject. Making this show even more interesting to listen to! Thanks for all that your team does to produce these podcasts!
