Press Release Body: Del Mar, CA, September 19, 2008 -- Join Alex Tsakiris for a
interview with Dr. Julie Beischel on her response to critics of her research into
psychic mediums. During the 45-minute interview Beischel discusses the challenges
of going beyond skeptical debunking:

the possibility of achieving positive results. If you wanted to study plant growth,
you don’t put a dry seed on the bench top in the lab and then say, ‘Plants can’t
grow.’ You use soil, water, sunlight, and then you study the growth of the seed.”

Beischel also discusses the upcoming demonstration of psychic medium communication
being carried out by Skeptiko and the Skeptics Guide to the Universe.

A complete transcript of the interview is available at:
