Episode Summary

EDIT
In this first episode of Penn and Teller: Bullshit, Penn and Teller take on psychics and if they really are talking to the dead. In fact, famous psychics such as John Edward are using an age-old technique called cold reading where they obtain information by asking questions and guessing rather than "talking to the dead".

This episode will shock you and will be very entertaining as Penn and Teller take down modern psychics through proof and the humor that makes this show not only informative, but a whole lot of laughs! Experts interviewed or seen in archival footage in this episode include: Joe Nickell (Paranormal Investigator, Journalist) James Underdown (Executive Director of the Center for Inquiry-West in Los Angeles) James Van Praagh (Host of "Beyond" [Archival Footage]) Mark Edward (Magician and Author) John Edward (Host of "Crossing Over" [Archival Footage]) Rosemary Altea (Medium)moreless
