FROM THIS EPISODE
Carl Christman is a mentalist. That means that, through reading micro-expressions, body language, and other clues, he can get a pretty good idea of what you’re thinking. He came into the studio to talk about mentalism for this week’s show – and to read Bob Carlson’s mind.

Next, we visit with a psychic. For a while, Lauren Cook based a lot of major life decisions on the advice of her psychic – psychic Stan. But when Stan fails to predict a major development in Lauren’s life, she has a crisis of conscience. Should he have known? Could he have?
