Be entertained and educated as professional paranormal claims investigators, Bryan & Baxter kick off the next installment of Ohlone College's Psychology Speaker Series, Monday, April 1. If there is a polar opposite to the Ghostbusters, it's these two "urban myth and legend busters," investigating and exposing pseudoscientific and paranormal claims as either a hoax intended to extract money from your wallets or just something scary designed to raise the hackles on the back of your neck.
The two investigators use sound scientific methods to investigate everything from phony claims of people "in touch with the other side," to ghosts, poltergeists and UFOs. They have verified the absolute normalcy of such sacrosanct haunted sites as the Stanley Hotel, known worldwide as the site of Stephen King's film "The Shining," with a "reputation" of its own as being haunted.
On stage, the two are wildly entertaining and demonstrate their methods to expose fraud, revealing what paranormalists do to deceive their audiences. They will conduct a pseudo-exorcism, uncover secrets of the psychics, and "harness the power of the ideomotor response." The duo has investigated multiple claims of paranormal activity and hauntings at numerous sites. Video clips from paranormal investigations illustrate fraudulent paranormal claims they have exposed.
Known for being "scientific skeptics," Bryan & Baxter often utilize a variety of individuals specializing in geology, medicine, video and audio production, linguistics, and even magicians, experts in misdirection.
Come and enjoy this frighteningly fun presentation and learn what paranormal claimants do not want you to know. For more information or tickets, call (510) 659-6031 or visit www.smithcenter.com.
