James Randi At The World Skeptics Congress And Women, Media And Science #6WSC12

It's a Sunday morning and everyone is on the edge of their seats, to hear Massimo Polidoro interview James Randi. We're hearing stories about the Alpha Kids, Philippine faith-healers, Peter Popoff, how his asteroid is larger than Arthur C. Clarke's (although more recently named - thanks for the correction, Rolak!), the intersection of science and magic... ...and how a matchbox didn't fool him: New podcast episode out at the Token Skeptic, one that I conducted a while back - Episode One … [Read more...]

Playlist En Route To Berlin

Well, it's a long trip on a plane to the other side of the world... One of the nicest things about travelling, is that it gives me a chance to listen to music while trundling through terminals with luggage and do some Pilates in empty departure lounge in order to unkink my muscles. The Police and "Canary in a Coalmine" - I'll listen to this when I'm hauling arse from Terminal 1 to Terminal 3, Heathrow: Feel free to stretch along with me - I'll be in the air for about 18 hours, after … [Read more...]
