This week features an interview with Hayley Stevens. Project Barnum was born after news broke in September 2011 that self-proclaimed psychic, Sally Morgan, had been accused by audience members at one of her shows of being fed information.
Speculation, accusations and denials were thrown left, right and centre, yet there was one group of people caught in the cross fire – the audience who had parted with their money…
