Somewhere Over the Rainbow Ruse; And Other Cold Reading Techniques36m | Nov 29, 2022
In the final episode looking at Psychics and Mediums before our Season 4 Conclusion...We're getting skeptical.
If you have ever paid for a psychic reading and left feeling amazed at how they knew so much...but still had that weird, doubtful pit in your stomach, you're not alone. Confirmation bias and subjective validation put us all at risk of being mislead. And keep us coming back for more. As well-known skeptic, James Randi said, "Some people just like to be tricked."
Today we look at some well known examples of attempted trickery, the ways in which complete strangers seem to know so much about us, and how something so simple as styrofoam peanuts can completely stump a fox!
