Psychic Surly Amy’s Message from Beyond . . .

. . . the camera! The one and only episode of Ask Psychic Surly Amy is now available on YouTube. (Don’t ask me how this is possible. Something to do with the energy in the universe being guided by Amy’s mind to the Internet.) As part of our Skepchick Challenge to raise money for SkepchickCON 2013, Amy agreed to answer your otherworldly questions on camera if you helped us meet our goal.

And you totally did. A huge thanks to everyone who donated and spread the word. Enjoy the psychically enriched spoils of victory!

    LOL! That was Hilarious. I know she said she would only do one, but Surly Amy really should consider doing another one.

      I could not agree more. Maybe Hitchens’ ghost could convince her.

        I’d have imagined that he’d still be too busy questioning everything after the realization that there was an after life to be bothered, but what the hey. Lets go for it. : )

    I believe!

    You have convinced me! Believer 4 LYFE. I have started seeing the ghosts of the mouse toys around, so I know you’re right.

    Mostly, I thought that this was pretty funny, especially the Hitchens part. The use of mocking Middle Eastern music, and the part where “fortune cookie say” was said, both by a person presenting as white, was offensive in a racist sort of way. I think that this could have been done without that. I am a Skepchick reader and supporter; I just find this particular piece problematic in these ways.
