In Mission 85 we explore the enigmatic SPIRICOM machine -- a sort-of radio to the dead that was built in the late 1970s. The device allegedly offered two-way communication between a living medium, William O’Neil and a spirit named Doc Mueller. During the mission you’ll get to hear actual recordings of the conversations, plus learn why the machine stopped working in the early 1980s and its pieces were dismantled and spread throughout the country. Where is this machine now? Does it still work? Tune in to find out!
