Description

Mark Edward is a professional mentalist who specializes in magic of the mind -- including a convincing stint as a fake psychic. He's the author of Psychic Blues: Confessions of a Conflicted Medium.


What We Discuss with Mark Edward:



  • What is mentalism, and how does it use our desire for the outlandish to be true against us?

  • Why all so-called psychics are frauds, though a small percentage genuinely believes their own hype.

  • Cold reading vs. hot reading, and how psychics use the results of these readings to convince you they're able to consult supernatural entities.

  • What it was like to work for the Psychic Friends Network, and how Mark used his mentalist superpowers to mine information from people over the phone -- and keep them calling back.

  • How big-name celebrity psychics ply their trade in front of large studio audiences while keeping the scam safely under control.

  • And much more...

I really loved this episode! Although, I unfortunately had one of those "I bet you're fun at parties" moments when talking to a very believing friend about her experience. Once I realized how much she really wanted to believe it, I realized nothing would convince her otherwise and politely listened. What a fun guest to add to the list, thank you for the episode!
