Mark Twain said, "Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please." Pseudoscience adherents to this adage, but are their distortions deliberate, the result of scientific ignorance, or due to a deep desire for extraordinary possibilities?

Join Neil and guest co-host Leighann Lord as they investigate the weird and wacky world of pseudoscience.
