Token Skeptic Podcast on Sexism and the Internet

Token Skeptic Podcast on Sexism and the Internet November 27, 2011

Ugh, is vile misogyny ever epidemic on the internet.

Token Skeptic interviews three female bloggers about it. The interviews are most interesting and I also fell in love with a couple of the women who did the intros to the podcast based on their awesome accents and acting abilities alone (and in spite of the heinous content of the internet comments they were reeancting).

I also lamented online misogyny, though less insightfully, as just a part of my interview with the Angry Atheist podcast a couple weeks ago.

Here are the bios of the women in the Token Skeptic podcast:

Jennifer Ouellette – Jennifer is the author of three popular science books, specialises in physics and many related topics, with particular emphasis on how science intersects with popular culture, as well as science communication and outreach. She is also a prolific blogger, writing regularly for Discovery News and maintaining a blog at Scientific American called Cocktail Party Physics. We discuss her article ‘Is It Cold In Here‘.
