In his new YouTube series Science of Scams, Derren Brown attempts to win our skeptical hearts back after all that NLP bullshit (and, as Sid reminds me, that really horribly pathetic lottery trick “explanation”*).
Personally, despite the occasional dumb explanation, I’m on Team Derren and I like that he’s using his talents to educate through YouTube.
