The Real History of Ouija

Hosted by

A new horror movie comes out this weekend about the creepy power of the Ouija board. But the mysterious game has a history that goes back much farther. Seekers have been gathering around Ouija boards for anything from family entertainment to communion with the dead since the 1800s. We talk to an expert on so-called “talking boards.”
