Julia Sweeney, Saturday Night Live alumnus, writer, actor and comedienne wowed us last year with her excerpts from her one-woman show "Letting Go of God." This year she's given her free rein to do a complete show for you on. (see http://www.celebatheists.com/entries/atheist_36.html)

Penn & Teller graced us with their humor, wisdom and magic. They have cemented their positions as allies against nonsense and pseudoscience with their
Showtime series "Bullshit!" and proved that humor is one of the skeptic's best tools.  

Dr. Michael Shermer kicked off Friday morning, and besides his informative lecture, participated in the Thursday workshop, and will act as our Master of Ceremonies for part of the weekend.  (see http://www.skeptic.com/)

Jamy Ian Swiss, one of the magic profession's brightest stars, lectured brings his unique magician's perspective on those psychic scammers.

Banachek, the man who fooled the scientist, will also be returned to share with you his experiences as one of the two original "Alpha Boys" who infiltrated a parapsychology lab and proved that yes, scientists CAN be fooled. He's an experienced mentalist and lecturer who really knows his subject.

Dr. Joe Nickell, Chief Investigator for the Committee for Scientific Investigation of Claims of the Paranormal (CSICOP) is a forensic expert, former private eye and author. He has traveled extensively and brings to TAM 3 his depth of knowledge on all areas of scams and hoaxes.

Rick Maue, Magician,  specializes in theatrical sťances and presented an especially interesting late night talk at TAM 2. He was so popular we've asked him to appear in "prime time" for TAM 3. Rick's a champion of critical thinking and infuses that message into all his performances.

Brenton Ver Ploeg is a Miami attorney with a special interest in science and pseudoscience. He represents both CSICOP and JREF and tells us about the role of the Courts in battling scam artists.

Andrew Mayne will tells how he uses his magic skills to teach critical thinking in the classroom.

Dr. Richard Wiseman, originally an award-winning magician, currently heads the Perrott-Warrick Research Unit at the University of Hertfordshire.

Christopher Hitchens is a writer who, with trademark savage wit, Hitchens flattens hypocrisy inside the Beltway and around the world, laying bare the "permanent government" of entrenched powers and interests.
