Rob C. Thompson, doctor of occult history and ritual, hosts an in-depth exploration of supernatural mysteries, beliefs, and practices. He’s joined by the Alchemical Actors, a ragtag crew of occult initiates who bring these stories to life by re-enacting major moments in the history of the paranormal. We cover black magic, lady magic, the immortal soul, secret magical orders, and everything in between. Episodes post bi-weekly on Fridays.

Fun, funny and informative
I am really enjoying both the quality of the research and the personalities of the Alchemical actors. As soon as an episode lands it jumps to the top of my list.
A very great podcast
This podcast has quickly become the one thing I play in my car and around the house. Seldom do I find myself not listening in or anticipating the next episode. I re-listen to every episode just so I can hold on to everything that was said. Now after a while of listening I have begun to ask myself why I find the discussions so interesting. I have never had an interest in the occult, I had never heard about it until listening to this podcast. After pondering all of this i now believe that I love this podcast because it is organic, filled with people who a genuine and seek a greater understanding. I love Rob, and the rest of the alchemical actors because they have been real and upfront with their beliefs. One can also hear the admiration that the students and speakers have for Rob and it’s heart warming. This podcast is filled with wonderful information and very great people. Can recommend it enough.
I was POSSESSED into writing this review. Keep up the good work!
