My Two Cents: Like ghosts, Bill wants to believe in psychics
Welcome to the 21st episode of “My Two Cents” with comedian Bill Engvall, the show designed to make you laugh and think! Scroll to the bottom to listen to this week’s episode.
Guest: Famed psychic medium John Edward
On the heels of his well-received episode with Paranormal Witness producer Mark Lewis on ghosts, Bill welcomes psychic medium John Edward to the show this week. The host of the long-running reality show Crossing Over in the early 2000s, John has long been one of the best-known psychics in the entertainment business.
The two chat about the difference between psychics and mediums as well as the notion of whether either practice is real. Much like Paranormal Witness, a show that views ghost stories through the eyes of a skeptic, John explained that he believes his act needs to stand up to skepticism — in large part because he had to justify it to his father, who was both a veteran and a former police officer. “I don’t want to give you a feeling,” John says, “I want to make you think.”
Bill also asks the question that we think is on everybody’s mind: “How many crazy ladies have you met who want to know if their cats are OK?”
