Banachek – The World’s Greatest Mentalist

In this interview with Banachek, we talk about mentalism, magic, skepticism, and how psychics fool scientists. We discuss Banachek’s work with Project Alpha in which he went undercover, posing as a psychic, at Washington University’s MacDonald Research Laboratory to prove the importance of skepticism and following scientific protocol.

We also discuss his work managing the James Randi Educational Foundation’s Million Dollar Challenge in which a million dollar prize was offered to anyone who could prove they had paranormal abilities.
