Maureen Hancock, a nationally renowned spirit medium, called into the station this week to talk with us about her abilities to communicate with the deceased.

As you'll see in the video above, Maureen has helped many people get in touch with the spirits of their lost friends and relatives with emotional results.

Now, Maureen will join us on Friday mornings, starting Aug. 9, to talk with our listeners in an effort to connect them with the spirit realm.

According to her 2011 book, "The Medium Next Door: Adventures of a Real-Life Ghost Whisperer," Maureen discovered her ability to communicate with the dead when she was only 5 years old. Even though she was descended from a long line of Irish mystics, she kept her ability a secret. Then, after a near fatal car crash, Maureen heard the spirits again and embraced her calling: to receive messages from the deceased and assist the dying.
