Throughout history, pastors, preachers, healers and holy rollers have claimed to directly channel God in the performance of miracles.  The sick and afflicted stand in long lines to be touched and cured by these (supposed) conduits of divine healing power.  

But how effective are these healers?  What types of miracles are claimed and received?  What about those who received no actual healing benefit?  Who profits from healing services and crusades?  What are the tricks of the charlatans and fakes?  And are they all fakes?

This podcast expores the side of "faith healing" that you won't hear about during Sunday morning prayer.
