Conversations With Mediums

Scott Podmore, a best-selling author, and seasoned travel, food and music writer interviewed more than thirty mediums all over the planet from differing socioeconomic backgrounds and cultures. Scott selects twelve of the “conversations” that took place for the book. Included were August Goforth and Timothy Gray, co-authors of The Risen Books. All have a similar line of topics in his aim to find threads of consistency—or inconsistencies. Coming from a standpoint of giving these mediums the benefit of the doubt, he provides a forum to discuss their alleged abilities that cover areas including spirituality, psychic predictions, physical mediumship, electronic voice phenomena, trance, and more.
