Richard Wiseman has been described as "...the most interesting and innovative experimental psychologist in the world today". Starting his career as a magician, he traveled Europe and the U.S. performing both on the streets and in established venues like the magic castle in LA. However, he quickly realized that performing magic tricks for people wasn't enough. He had a deeper curiosity about the world and people tapping him on the shoulder. So, he switched gears, obtained a Ph.D. in Psychology, became a professor, and has since written several best selling psychology books on topics ranging from luck to paranormal activity. But it doesn't end there. He's also become a YouTube celebrity, with his powerhouse channel Quirkology, which has grown a loyal following of almost 2 million subscribers.
