Plus, thinking of changing careers in the New Year? Or taking steps to do so? We’ll lay out which industries across the state are likely to have the biggest needs. And we’ll introduce you to a new group of superheroes and, later, the candidates for Texas Agriculture Commissioner. We’ll also get a call from the future -sort of- thanks to a former Texan whose back “home” in Australia.

V&B: Clairvoyants Working in Law Enforcement

Unsolved mysteries are by their very nature interesting and quite often  make for good drama. Our perception and understanding of these mysteries is more often than not informed by television, film, articles and so on. In this Views and Brews discussion, recorded live at the Cactus Cafe , we explored one area where the myths are profound and emotions run high—the relationship between psychics who work with law enforcement agencies.

KUT’s Rebecca McInroy hosted Dr. Kim Rossomo from The Center for Geospatial Intelligence and Investigation at Texas State University, Dr. John McLaren professor in the department of criminal justice at Texas State University, clairvoyant and lecturer Gharith Pendragon , and remote viewer Dr. Paul Smith , author of “Reading The Enemy’s Mind: Inside Stargate, America’s Psychic Espionage Program ”, for an evening exploring how clairvoyants work with state and federal agencies to solve cases and the positives and negatives for both parties. We looked at these questions along with yours at the Cactus Cafe and you can listen back to a podcast of this show by clicking on the player at the top of this post.
