Last Friday The Colbert Report did a piece on Daryl Bem’s research into precognition/presentiment (ie. “feeling the future”) describing it under the title “Time-Traveling Porn”. Though Colbert gets plenty of laughs with his riffing on the theme, it was surprising to see Bem there in the studio to discuss his experiments with Stephen – and even better, he acquitted himself very well, describing his research clearly while playing along with the humour:

|Time-Traveling Porn – Daryl Bem|
Colbert seems to enjoy exploring and having fun with some of these fringe topics – remember last year he had Leslie Kean on discussing her book UFOs: Generals, Pilots and Government Officials Go on the Record, he’s had some fun at the expense of Uri Geller, and has had Daniel Pinchbeck on as a guest in the past as well.
