***Update***: We have several interviews from The Amazing Meeting that we’ll be releasing over the next few weeks, so enjoy this bonus episode!
Our latest podcast guests are James Randi and Banachek:
James Randi is the legendary investigator of paranormal and pseudoscientific claims and the namesake of the James Randi Educational Foundation. Banachek is the mentalist who created the “bullet catch” trick made famous by Penn & Teller and the director of JREF’s One Million Dollar Paranormal Challenge.
Jessica spoke with them about the difficulties of testing so-called supernatural powers, performing mentalism and fooling people, and what they still love about watching magic shows.
We’d love to hear your thoughts on the podcast. If you have any suggestions for people we should chat with, please leave them in the comments, too.
