Interview George P. Hansen

This week, Marcel Cairo will be interviewing author, parapsychologist and magician George P. Hansen on his podcast AfterlifeFM. The show will be recorded this weekend, but broadcasted next week. AfterlifeFM is typically a live call-in show, but because of a scheduling conflict, this week is an exception. Therefore Marcel has set up at toll free number (1-877-372-5367) where people can record their questions for George.


George P. Hansen 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.

George has also published a book called The Trickster and the Paranormal, and he has recently entered the world of blogging, sharing his insights at The Paranormal Trickster Blog.

Some of you may remember Marcel's interview with me back in July (my first interview ever!). Now he's giving the public an opportunity to interview a true authority in the field of parapsychology, so call in with whichever question might be on your mind.

Again, the number is
1-877-372-5367. In case you flub your question, you can hit the pound sign and start over. All submissions should be received by Saturday night.
