What you'll learn in this lecture class:

Was it Aliens... or Hypnosis, Ghosts... or Hallucination, Demons... or Delusion? Our storytellers dive in to the scary stories that have haunted us for generations, and the psychology behind them. We explore the unexplained and find that the reasons we invent supernatural stories are often more terrifying than the stories themselves.

July Theme: Urban Legends
