One overlooked area of the JREF website is our YouTube channel. You'll find a link in the menu at the left. Over the past year, we've been adding a lot of content found nowhere else, featuring James Randi doing what he does best. We're up to 182 videos, with more coming all the time. One example is this extended video presentation of Randi speaking at NASA. (You may wish to click on the video for a larger view). Oh, and to give credit where credit is due, you might catch a glimpse of Penn & Teller and the "Amazing" Rudolph in there as well.

Dr Buzz0 is well known to many of us... he's been to a few TAMs and local skeptic events, and his site Depleted Cranium pokes holes in many sorts of uncritical thought and knee-jerk public reaction.

Buzz is also known for creating videos, and this one was sent to us by a Swift reader for our perusal.

How did Sylvia Browne do predicting how 2007 would go? Buzz gives her a fair shake in this gameshow-style scorecard.
