The Nonsense Bazaar is a bravely paranoid, neon-colored voyage through UFOs, the paranormal, cults, conspiracies, magic, mysticism, and the secret history of our silly world. Armed with independent research, empathy, and absurdity, Willow and Sequoyah offer a fresh, detailed perspective on the weirder side of life.
Returning to our enlightening study on Jane Lead, today we’re delving into the pivotal years from her first vision in 1670 to her demise in 1704. We’ll probe into how, as her physical sight failed, her spiritual visions proliferated, igniting both intrigue and devotion among a growing body of followers. This clandestine group, the Philadelphian Society, subscribed to Lead’s prophecies of an impending era of universal brotherly love. However, the course to spiritual enlightenment wasn’t always smooth. There’s murder and mountain trolls.
Join us as we unravel the complexity of Jane Lead’s later life, as well as all the scandal and drama that went with it!
