Good talk on effective ways to deal with extraordinary/unlikely claims.

"Carrie Poppy is one half of the Oh No Ross and Carrie podcast (previously), a skeptical look at fringe science and paranormal claims whose hosts distinguish themselves by their compassionate, open-minded approach to their subjects, fuelled in part by their upbringing in evangelical Christianity, a faith they've both since renounced.

"In this Tedx Vienna video, Poppy recounts the curious and surprising story of a time when she thought she was staying in a haunted house ('what happened next' as they say 'will surprise you'), and uses that as a springboard for a wonderful framework for skeptics to use when talking to people about their spiritual or paranormal beliefs -- basically, how to say, 'I don't believe you' without being an asshole."
