Podcast #195: Telepathy and Radio Mind

Pamela Klassen, Professor of the Study of Religion, Faculty of Arts & Science, University of Toronto joins us on the podcast to chat about her book The Story of Radio Mind: A Missionary’s Journey on Indigenous Land.

She shares the tale of Anglican Archbishop Frederick Du Vernet, who claims to have invented “radio mind,” in which thoughts were said to have been telepathically transmitted via radio waves. Operating out of western Canada in the early 1920s in the early days of radio, Du Vernet is an intriguing example of the intersections of religion and radio.
