Engaging?

9 October, 2011 // 17 Comments

The last week or so since the accusations against Sally Morgan were made public and the news spread all over the place and ignited much discussion I’ve watched as people have swarmed to her Facebook groups and online discussion forums and similar to talk about what has happened. Many have posted on Facebook groups set up by fans of Morgan to [...]

Ooh look! Interesting things!

Recently I was interviewed, amoung other things, about Project Barnum by the lovely Kylie Sturgess who I had the pleasure to meet briefly at QEDcon in Manchester earlier this year. Kylie is the host of the Token Skeptic Podcast and I can be heard on episode 79. Also this week, the guys at Sceptici.ro released the interview they did with me during [...]

Donate & Win!

3 October, 2011 // 3 Comments

Over the weekend I have been asking people to donate to help people on a low income get to the QED conference in Manchester in March 2012. So far, through the generosity of others, we’ve raised enough to pay for a couple of tickets, which is awesome! The lovely guys at Skeptic Bros have just gotten in touch to make a donation of a different [...]

I originally, rather cheekily, set up a post on my blog asking people to help me pay for my friend Bob to get to the QED conference in March 2012. I didn’t think I would raise enough for his ticket (with some money left over) within two hours – people are generous and it was very humbling to see. That’s ¬£89 raised in two [...]

Sally, we’re not going to hang you…

Sally Morgan has mentioned on Twitter that the press coverage and reaction to the allegations that she cheated at one of her shows is akin to ‘a modern day witch hunt’. I personally find this comparison to be distasteful and wonder how Sally can view herself as a victim of a ‘witch hunt’ when it she who brings it upon [...]

Project Barnum & other stuff

26 September, 2011 // 1 Comment

So I’ve gone and done a thing, and that thing is Project Barnum. It was an idea I’ve had for a while now but haven’t really gotten around to putting into action for one reason or another. Yet, when word really began to spread about Sally Morgan being accused by audience members at a recent show of being fed information I realised [...]

What I do

19 September, 2011 // 0 Comments

I’m sometimes accused by other paranormal researchers of being an arm chair skeptic and of “being able to talk the talk, but not able to walk the walk”. So I¬†thought I’d make this post to lend some clarity for those who are uncertain about what it is I actually do, and how I go about doing it when it comes to ghosts and [...]
