Afraid of Mind Reading

Award-winning mind reader Mark Toland talks about getting into people's heads and his skepticism about the paranormal.


You are going to LOVE episode 30!!

How do I know this? Our guest, mind reader Mark Toland, told me.

Mark Toland is an international award-winning mind reader. His entertainment is the go-to choice for major corporate and college events around the world. Mark has been featured on ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, WGN, NPR, SiriusXM, and WBEZ. In 2018, Mark’s critically-acclaimed one man show “MIND READER” won the prestigious Chicago Theatre Award for “Best Special Event.” In the same year, Mark’s international “Out Of My Mind” tour garnered praise across North America. Vue Weekly says “Mark Toland is sincerely funny, heartfelt and keeps you in awe!” and awarded the show “☆☆☆☆☆” (“Five Stars”) at the Edmonton International Fringe Festival.

Mark has also correctly guessed the outcome of the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament, predicted the headlines of the Chicago Tribune, and bicycled through Chicago traffic completely blindfolded. Although he is still skeptical about the paranormal -- but as you will hear, he has an open invitation for us to help change that.

You can book Mark for a Zoom event on his website marktoland.com.
