In 2014, skeptic Mark Tilbrook started a campaign aimed at giving audiences at psychic shows a simple leaflet to help them question the information presented by psychics. Soon after his campaign began, Mark found himself threatened by psychic Sally Morgan’s team. He was subjected to verbal, physical and legal intimidation. Fortunately, with the help of Good Thinking, Mark was able to successfully defend himself against libel threats, to see his story featured across the national media, and to expand on his leafleting campaign to reach more people than he ever imagined possible.
In the clip below, Mark explains how eight months of support from Good Thinking allowed him to continue his work, and why he believes Good Thinking is a valuable resource for UK skepticism.
