Anderson opened today's show explaining his curiosity with store front psychics and an undercover investigation set up by the show. After a video of the undercover investigation, Debra & Annie joined Anderson to discuss their experience.
We heard from all sides of this story - a gypsy psychic found guilty of swindling and facing 20 years in jail in Florida & her lawyer, a former NYC District Attorney who called psychics nothing more than ponzi schemers, two other women who were scammed by psychics, and Betty & Steve who we met in the opening. There were questions from the audience and a woman in the audience spoke about her addiction to psychics along with a lawyer currently pursuing a civil case against a psychic. There was some humor mixed in with this big bucket of crazy, like Anderson asking the gypsy psychic, "If you are psychic, how come you didn't see the police coming to arrest you?" The following clip shows a couple more funny moments with Betty and Steve - when Anderson thinks he may have been cursed, not paying your friends, magical thinking & then Anderson thinks he may be psychic ~
