Skepticism and magic are closely related, thanks in large part to James Randi. I proudly place myself in his camp - I think there may be something about practicing deception that allows one to see it elsewhere more easily. (We do have a highly unfortunate brand of performer known as the gospel magician, but they alwas get snubbed at conventions) Randi is also a great performer - I really hope to make it out to an Amazing Meeting
. Bullshit is really entertaining and you can watch it online for free if you have Netflix. They are also frequent guests at the Amazing Meeting.
