MTS: Meet Dezrah Blinn (Dezrah the Strange)

Dezrah Blinn is a professional Magician who uses his skills to spread a message of scientific skepticism and curiosity. I first met him at Skepticamp New Hampshire, where he had a friend break a large concrete block with a sledgehammer as he held the block on his chest while laying on a bed of nails. He then proceeded to explain the physics behind the stunt, demystifying it and teaching the lesson that things are not always as unbelievable as they seem.

I had a chance to visit Dezrah at his home to get the full scoop on the man behind the show. Enjoy!

MTS: Meet Michael Shermer

What can I say about Michael Shermer that hasn't already been said? Author, Magazine Publisher, College Professor, Consistent debate opponent to Deepak Chopra, and on, and on. 

In our interview I got to ask about his early days as an author, his participation in founding the "Race Across America," and his position as a Libertarian in a Liberal world.

MTS: Meet Carrie Poppy

Carrie is 1/2 of the duo "Ross and Carrie." A few episodes back we interviewed Ross. Now, here's Carrie!

Carrie seems to infuse an upbeat energy into everything she does & it's no surprise that they seem to be having so much fun while recording the "Oh No, Ross & Carrie" podcast. During our interview we talked about her days as a child exorcist, how a search for non-leather boots led to a whole new lifestyle, her partnership with Ross Blocher. We also did a begging segment at one point.


Oh No, Ross and Carrie!
