Episode #23 - Jan Helen McGee
« on: January 20, 2007, 03:12:43 AM »
In this old episode the panel interviews "Psychic Detective" Jan Helen McGee.

At around 51:00 minutes into the show, Steven invites her to be tested on her psychic abilities for murder cases and for assessing health problem in people. Although she was initially reluctant, eventually she agreed to be tested by the panel.

Was there any follow up on this? I think it would be an interesting exercise to debunk another psychic.

There has been no mention of it in any subsequent episode.

There was actually another thread about this.  Podcast # 23: Jan Helen McGee interview and followup?.

Dr. Novella posted and had the following to say:

Quote from: "Steven Novella"
No follow up yet. We were waiting for an appopriate local murder, but no luck so far.

We simply have not had time to work up another test protocol, but it's on the to do list.

I'm working my way through the podcasts and just heard this one.  Jan Helen is just so dang normal - would you ever pick her out as delusional if you saw her on the street?  The interview was hilarious and sad all at once.
