Oh No Ross and Carrie
Summary: Welcome to Oh No, Ross and Carrie, the show where we don’t just report on fringe science, spirituality, and claims of the paranormal, but take part ourselves. Follow us as we join religions, undergo alternative treatments, seek out the paranormal, and always find the humor in life's biggest mysteries. We show up - so you don’t have to.
Ross and Carrie attend a séance with Jill Marie Morris, a "comedium" who specializes in late celebrity readings. What do Divine, Vincent Price, and Natalie Wood have to say? Who will disrupt Carrie and Drew's wedding? And WHAT is Lon Chaney's nickname?!
Ross sits down at CSICon 2019 with David Mikkelson, the creator of Snopes.com, to talk about fact checking, Disney urban legends, waging internet debates and finding reliable information in the post-truth age of fake news and alternative facts.
Ross and Carrie try out a family of apps that claim to treat dozens of physical and psychological complaints, using nothing but a pair of earphones and a specially selected "brain wave therapy" sound.
Ross and Carrie sleep away their toxins and collect their germy juices in a disgusting stew on the soles of their feet, with the help of detox foot pads. They examine the ingredients, patent, relevant studies, and history of these mysterious devices.
Ross and Carrie go to a local spa for a miraculous cure heretofore unknown to science: the detoxification of the entire body through the soles of the feet! Will medicine be changed forever?! Probably. Plus, Carrie's getting married, but whatever.
Ross and Carrie are joined by activists Susan Gerbic and Mark Edward, who share a long history of exposing allegedly fake psychics and their methods. They talk faux mediums, psychic stings, ethics, and Susan's team's recent coverage in The New York Times.
Armed with psychic medium bingo cards, the top 75 American names, and a very special surprise guest, Ross and Carrie revisit "evidential medium" Cindy Kaza to see if she uses the same names and details to prove that she is conversing with the dead.
Cindy Kaza calls herself an evidential medium. That's someone who can PROVE they're talking to your dead loved ones -- relatives, friends, pets -- with solid evidence. Can Cindy convince Ross and Carrie that she's in communication with the great beyond?
Ross and Carrie connect with Britt Hermes about her journey from practicing naturopath, to naturopathy critic. With blunt honesty, Britt shares her journey from believer to critic, and the slings and arrows she's endured since she walked away.
It's story time, again. Pull up a chair in the nearest potato patch, as Ross and Carrie share passages from some of their favorite female writers from the world of spirituality, including Teal Swan, Mary Baker Eddy, Ellen White, and more!
In this presentation given at Atheists United, Ross extols the benefits of intellectually consistent cherry picking and details some of the helpful lessons learned from the world of belief, including Scientology, Mormonism, Laughter Yoga and Eckankar.
Ross and Carrie review some of the many treatments that listeners, spiritualists, alternative medicine practitioners, and doctors have advised they take for migraines and eczema. Plus, they try two new homeopathic treatments, with SHOCKING results.
Our Eck adventure comes to an end as we recall our last day at the group's annual spring seminar, and share some gems from the THOUSAND PAGES OF ECKANKAR READING we did so you wouldn't have to. Plus, Ross gets a personal letter from Eckankar.
Live from Austin, Texas, Ross and Carrie recount their unparalleled experience having a therapist analyze their brain maps to look for signs of repressed memory, trauma, homosexuality, and demons. Featuring two unexpected neuroscientists in the audience!
Live from PodX! Ross, Carrie, a Reiki Master, a Christian rocker, three Brits and a potentially clairvoyant child sweep a lovely home with spells and scents, banning bad energy, and invoking blessings. Plus, Stephen Mason (Jars of Clay) plays music!
