An Honest Liar

4-29_honest_liar.jpg

James "The Amazing" Randi is a renowned magician and escape artist, but he can’t abide charlatans. So he turned his energy to exposing psychics and con-artists with intricate investigations and hoaxes of his own. His story is the focus of a documentary by Utah filmmaker Tyler Measom. On Friday, we're rebroadcasting our conversation with Measom about Randi's crusade for truth and about how all of us, even "The Amazing" Randi himself, are susceptible to deception. (Rebroadcast)

On Tuesday evening, March 29, Tyler Measom and Justin Weinstein's film An Honest Liar is showing on the PBS series Independent Lens. That's at 11 p.m. here in Utah on KUED Channel 7. Check your local listings for show times elsewhere in the country.
