Mark Gifford Is Serious About Pseudoscience

Elena Souris

Today's university professors are more like service providers than we think. Teaching students at the University of Texas at San Antonio about how to detect con-artist palm-readers and ghost-speaking psychics, Mark Gifford's experience is far from a service provider though.

In this heart-wrenching story, Mark realizes he is called to serve, rather than provide a service.

Mark told this story at our March 1 show, with the theme "In Service."

Worth Repeating is Texas Public Radio's live, storytelling event series that tries to capture the Sound of San Antonio through the stories of your friends and neighbors.
