Que Sera, Sera. Is the future ours to see? The Great Australian Psychic Prediction Project.

For more than 10 years, Richard Saunders has been compiling and researching psychic predictions made in Australia covering the years 2000 to 2020. With over 3000 predictions in the database, what conclusions can we draw about those who claim to be able to see into the future? How many of the thousands of predictions turned out to be on the money, how many were too vague to score and how many were just plain wrong? This talk will also detail the work of Richard’s online team of researchers from around the world who have for over a year met each week to pour over and mark the predictions. The official results of the project at long last.


Richard Saunders starred as the “Skeptical Judge” on two seasons of the TV show “The One: The Search for Australia’s Most Gifted Psychic.” He is also the host of the weekly podcast “The Skeptic Zone,” now in its 14th year. Richard is also an origami expert and children’s author, CSI Fellow and life member of Australian Skeptics.
