George Hanson is the author of an amazing piece of work entitled, The Trickster and the Paranormal. He was professionally employed in parapsychology laboratories for eight years — three at the Rhine Research Center in Durham, North Carolina, and five at Psychophysical Research Laboratories in Princeton, New Jersey.  His experiments included remote viewing, card guessing, ganzfeld, electronic random number generators, séance phenomena, and ghosts.  He has been active in a number of psychic, UFO, and New Age organizations, and he helped found a skeptics group.
His papers in scientific journals cover mathematical statistics, fraud and deception, the skeptics movement, conjurors in parapsychology, and exposés of hoaxes.  He is a member of the International Brotherhood of Magicians.
In this interview we discuss;
 
  • The role of deception in the paranormal.
  • Ghost hunting.
  • The scientific process as it relates to the paranormal.
  • The subtlety of the trickster phenomenon.
  • Liminality.
  • The effect of consciousness on the paranormal.
  • Skeptics and Debunkers.
  • The UFO Phenomenon.
And much more. The subject is so diverse and subtle that we only scratch the surface of the true strangeness of it all. You can find more about George and the book at www.tricksterbook.com

Roy Davies on The Darwin Conspiracy - October 4, 2014

 

 
 

Roy Davies joins us to talk about his book The Darwin Conspiracy: Origins of a Scientific Crime. Did Charles Darwin really come up with the theory of evolution? Some say he stole the idea from others, but is there proof? And to what degree? Roy Davies does a fantastic job in this book of fleshing out what really happened in those days and revealing who really discovered what. It's a fascinating book, and will be an equaling fascinating conversation!
In nearly 30 years at the BBC, Roy Davies wrote, produced and directed many acclaimed documentaries for the archaeology and history series Chronicle and was for seven years Series Editor of Timewatch. He specialized in ground-breaking investigative and revisionist documentaries which challenged and re-examined popular historical beliefs among which were stories about the discovery of the tomb of Philip of Macedon and the row between Sir Arthur Evans and Professor Alan Wace over the origins of the Minoan civilization in Crete. Roy is also the author of Nautilus: Story of Man under the Sea, and was Executive Producer of the five-part BBC series of the same name which revealed the dangers of submarines since Napoleonic times and stories of the men who served in them. He was with Thor Heyerdahl when he burnt his reed boat off an island in the Red Sea in 1978, produced the programme which covered the raising of the Mary Rose off Southsea Castle in 1982 and covered the trial of O.J. Simpson for the BBC in 1995.
The book is out of print. If you want a copy of it, you can e-mail Roy directly, as he does have some copies left and he is willing to sell them at the original cost of the book. His email is TroyDavies at AOL. You can figure it out from there. If you can't, contact us and we will get you in touch. We will likely also be making the ebook available soon!
