Randi’s No Rascal

Tuesday 25th November / presented by Kylie Sturgess James Hall

An 86 year old secular humanist, atheist and sceptic, James Randi has investigated paranormal, occult and supernatural claims for much of his career.

He has made appearances on the Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson and the television programme 'Penn and Teller Bullshit'. Having plenty of experience in creating and performing illusions, he's not likely to be fooled by other people's trickery, including scams, frauds and pseudo-scientific claims.

In a 2012 documentary, filmmakers Justin Weinstein and Tyler Measom began work on 'An Honest Liar'; a profile of the life of the amazing Randi, as he embarks on a series of public crusades to expose America's beloved psychics, mentalists, preachers and faith-healers with religious fervour. Along the way the film shows how easily our perceptions can be fooled by magicians, con-artists and even documentaries themselves.

'An Honest Liar' is touring Australia in December and with James Randi himself doing a Q&A at the Octagon Theatre on Wednesday 3rd December. RTRFM reporter Kylie Sturgess spoke to the amazing Randi about how it all began.
