This episode took ages to create – in fact, it’s the longest time I’ve ever taken to research and edit a podcast… I started interviewing for it last year. Then I had to give iTunes a solid kick in order to make sure it uploaded at all. Sorry, listeners, but it’s finally here, all for you!
Tremendous thanks to the three people I interviewed, for being so patient until it finally came out: Token Skeptic #115 - On Myths And Makeup – Pseudoscience And Cosmetics. You can get the mp3 of it here, or subscribe to iTunes and get a whole bunch of the older episodes at the same time.
In the USA - Perry Romanowski is a member of the Beauty Brains Podcast and the Chemists Corner Website, where he reviews cosmetic products and solves consumer problems. He most recently worked in the hair care innovation group at Alberto Culver, and has written and edited numerous articles and books, taught continuing education classes for industry scientists, and developed successful websites. His latest book is Beginning Cosmetic Chemistry – 3rd Edition published by Allured.
In UK - The Skeptical Beauty Blog is written by an anonymous beauty product addict in the UK, a scientist who loves data and has experience of working for the biggest cosmetics products producer in the world and knows all the insider secrets.
