The Big Séance Podcast with Patrick Keller

I don’t think there is a more dramatic or fun form of spirit communication than a séance. Am I right? Picture any séance you’ve seen from an old movie or TV show. An old Victorian house, dark and ornate décor, candles all over, perhaps a Ouija board, and of course a fabulously costumed medium.


One of my biggest passions is reading, talking about, and researching the world of the paranormal. The online Merriam Webster dictionary defines séance as “a spiritualist meeting to receive spirit communications.” From day one here at BigSeance.com, my goal was to create a blog that covered paranormal and spiritual topics, with an emphasis on spirit communication. I’d highlight some of my team’s paranormal investigations, share some evidence, etc. A lot has changed since then.


After five years, over 400 published blog posts, and three years of the exciting addition of The Big Séance Podcast, I’ve learned a lot about the paranormal subculture! I’ve also learned a great deal about myself, what I know, and what I don’t know for sure yet. But I’m enjoying the spiritual growth, and as of right now I’d like to think of “The Big Séance” as not just a broad form of spirit communication, but a way to reach out to the other side, a way to learn from others who see or hear what some of us don’t, and a way to honor or learn about anyone’s life or past… a kind of remembrance.


Here all souls are invited to communicate or pass on messages to the living. You’ve joined me in several experiments. You’ve joined in the conversation and even shared your own experiences. Therefore, you’re not only an audience member for my séance, you’re all participating in it! It’s a BIG séance… and it’s getting bigger.
