A Mind Reader's Guide to Critical Thinking

A session at SkeptiCamp Chicago 2015

Having studied with James "The Amazing" Randi, Jonny Zavant tours the world as a professional Mentalist. A life-long student of understanding "why we do what we do", Jonny explains why our thinking sometimes goes awry- and how he leverages this phenomenon during his stage show. Join him for an exploration of the human mind, complete with magical demonstrations. He's a great speaker, disarmingly funny, and guarantees you'll be learning AND laughing!

As the son of a non-denominational pastor, Jonathan realized one day that if everybody thinks they're right about their faith, nobody is likely right.

While in college, he started working with the James Randi Educational Foundation handling applications for the Million Dollar Paranormal Challenge, and learned every trick in the book.

Since then he has become a professional Mentalist and Speaker.
