Token Skeptic – These Are The Ways The World Will End – Dragon*Con 2011

From a global pandemic to the Hadron super-collider… have some fun as our panel rips into the latest world-enders and answers your questions about why we are probably safe (for now).

Yes, that is Dr Phil ‘Bad Astronomer’ Plait, demonstrating meteor impact with a mintie that I gave him. Episode Eight-One of the Token Skeptic podcast, which (Libsyn willing…) will be out later today is with many, many, MANY thanks to the Skeptrack - Derek Colanduno of Skepticality.com and Mark Ditzler at Abrupt Media.

From the 2011 Skeptrack at Dragon*Con – in order on the panel from right to left, it’s Scott Sigler, Dr Pamela Gay, Dr John Cmar, Dr Phil Plait, Dr Ali Khan, Taylor Proctor and I don’t know who the moderator is (sorry!).

This is the link for the live-blogged post I did during the panel, at Podblack.com. Also featured on the podcast – this video that I took as the show was happening! Click on to watch it for yourself (it also features the song):
