Joan Rivers' Ouija Board Encounter

Can we talk? The Joan Rivers catchphrase is especially poignant for one figure in the paranormal community in the days following the comedian's death. Robert Murch is the foremost expert on Ouija Boards, and serves as a consultant on multiple film projects concerning the use of the (in)famous talking boards -- including the upcoming movie based on the Hasbro product. For more than 20 years, Murch has researched the history of Ouija and collected thousands of the boards.

Rivers used a glow-in-the-dark Ouija board in the second season of her WE tv series Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best?
