Eps 75: Magic, Deception, Hypnosis–Guest, Kevin Ferguson - Spark My Muse

August 19, 2016

Studying how magicians trick audiences reveals a lot about how our brains work or don't work. How do we become fooled? How does hypnosis REALLY work and can people do something against their moral code? Why are some people convinced that magicians (or charlatan faith healers, cult leaders, and the like that use the same techniques) actually have supernatural powers? My guest today is magician and a science writer, Kevin Ferguson and our conversation will cover how our brains can be deceived.
