In this episode I welcome back Adam to the show to discuss the 2012 TV special Derren Brown’s Apocalypse.  We talked about the context in which the show was made, the ethical and moral problems of what they do in the show, the techniques used to deceive and manipulate the participant, the controversy over whether the participant was an actor, and the questions of who Derren Brown is and why he made this show.
