In Dec 2005 he appeared on People, Places and Things, a local cable TV show hosted by Brian Sutherland. If hypnotism is real, it must be possible to explain the mechanism of trance and suggestion in terms of real events that happen in the body. Hypnotism is both an art and a science. With the aid of a slide show, Joe explained the science side of trance and suggestion and how the mind changes the body.
