Fremont, CA-Be entertained and educated as professional paranormal claims investigators, Bryan and Baxter kick off the next installment of Ohlone College's Psychology Speaker Series, Monday, April 1, 2013. If there is a polar opposite to the Ghostbusters it's these two, the "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 some scary meant to raise the hackles on the back of your neck.
The two use genuine scientific methods to investigate everything from phony claims of people "in touch with the other side," to ghosts and poltergeists, to UFOs, to exposing the absolute normalcy of such sacrosanct haunted sites as the Stanley Hotel, known worldwide as the site of Stephen King's film The Shining, but with a genuine "reputation" of its own as being haunted.
On stage the two are wildly entertaining and demonstrate their many methods of exposing fraud by demonstrating what paranormalists do to deceive their audiences. They conduct a pseudo-exorcism, teach you all the 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. They use real video clips from their paranormal investigations to illustrate illegitimate paranormal claims, which they have exposed in the past.
Known for being "scientific skeptics," Bryan & Baxter often utilize the help of a variety of individuals specializing in geology, medicine, video and audio production, linguistics, and even include the help of some magicians which, the later being of special value due to their expertise 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.
