    DescriptionThis week we take a look at the strange moving statues phenomenon that attracted hundreds of thousands of Irish Catholics to shrines across the country in the summer of 1985. The moving statues were part the bleak social landscape of Ireland in the 1980s, and a series of scandals leading up to that summer ignited something of a social movement that politicized the alleged miracles.

    We are joined by Victoria Anne Pearson of University College Cork and Cian Gill of the Wide

    Atlantic Weird Podcast who help contextualize the strange occurrences.
