Bridget Cleary | Episode 16 | Simply Strange

The 1800s were a time when superstition ran wild through the Irish countryside, but as the century began to come to a close, more and more people were getting an education and many superstitions were beginning to fade away. That being said, there were still plenty of people who held onto the beliefs of old, and sometimes this could have disastrous consequences.

The Pollock Twins | Episode 14 | Simply Strange

In May of 1957, a terrible tragedy struck the Pollock Family when young Jacqueline and Joanna Pollock were hit and killed by a crazed woman attempting vehicular suicide. Their parents were mortified. They had no idea what to do, so they did anything they could to help cope with the grief of losing both their daughters. Ultimately, John Pollock turned to religion - specifically reincarnation. He came to believe that someway, somehow, his girls would return to him and, as crazy as it may seem, they did. Or at least he believes that they did.

This week we tell the story of the Pollock Twins.
