Nearly Numinous

The Nearly Numinous podcast seeks to blend the academic study of religion with real world experiences of religion, community, the supernatural, and spirituality. Tune in to hear discussions about religious history, deep dives into pop culture (such as Star Trek or sports fandoms), and spooky discussions on vampires and other supernatural mythology. We’ll be interviewing academics, various practitioners, and more!
