Here is a little dip into the skeptic’s pool this week. It’s healthy to familiarize oneself with both sides of a story, don’t you think?

Little Atoms – Radio and Podcast

(From Skeptic News)

Philip Escoffey AKA The Grey Man, is one of the UK’s top psychic illusionist/mind readers. A Psychology graduate, Philip has been earning a living as a mentalist for the last 10 years.

A confirmed skeptic, Philip is dismissive of spiritualists, mediums and astrologers. However, he has a deep academic interest in the reasons why people need to believe and is an expert in how techniques like cold-reading are employed by psychics the world over. To this end, Philip was recently seen adding a little balance to five’s Britain’s Psychic Challenge.

Philip is currently previewing his stage show “Six Impossible Things Before Dinner” in London, before embarking on a month long residency at the Pleasance Theatre Edinburgh.
