This Halloween, we’re resurrecting the (Jewish) history of the undead: ghosts, vampires, zombies and demons. Occult expert Peter Bebergal returns to discuss hauntings, warding off spirits and practical advice for those in the midst of a demonic possession. Plus, Peter tells Miriam, Dan and Ashley a ghost story that will forever change the way you think about geese. If demons are interrupting your private cemetery conversations with ghosts, this episode is for you.

Peter Bebergal is a graduate of Harvard Divinity School and the author of “Season of the Witch: How the Occult Saved Rock and Roll,” “Too Much to Dream: A Psychedelic American Boyhood” and “Strange Frequencies: The Extraordinary Story of the Technological Quest for the Supernatural.”
