If you have Amazon prime there's a couple seasons of the show available. It's about a medium driving around in a cab giving people readings. "Just driving around talking to dead people". I am enjoying it.

Saw one episode. The TV psychic has two tools at their disposal; editing and pre interviews of guests by show production staff.
There's a statement at the beginning saying he hasn't met any of the passengers. He doesn't have to.
His hits seem too spot on. The format seems too unbelievable as well. People being picked up in the
guise of rideshare business. Yet we then see slow motion shots of them walking on the street and giving post interviews.
I guess they weren't in a hurry to get to where they were going.

Just some quick thoughts. I may watch another episode.

While I'm not generally a promoter of the skeptic organizations, there are two articles below that give some background on the situation. Basically, lots of facebook snooping.


You are correct that it's not exactly what it seems.

A sting where they bust this same medium regurgitating fake facebook information:

This is a mentalism forum. Of course I don't believe he's a "real" medium. I still find the show amusing.

Are you assuming all mentalists are non-believers?

To clarify, I was posting the link in response to the previous post. To elucidate some of his methods and some background on the show because indeed, it does not seem like cold reading and it isn't actually a ride-share. Not usually a big fan of skeptic orgs though.

Would never use the word "all". Most though. Also didn't mean to offend anybody.
