If You Knew Shuzi Like The Merseyside Skeptics? New Token Skeptic Podcast Out Now!

Firstly – tremendous thanks to the Young Australian Skeptics (particularly Catherine of Faster Pussycat Productions) for the brand-new second edition of the Skeptical Blog Anthology!

It’s got larger print and an adjusted layout – and still at the same fantastic price in e-book and print versions, with a bonus: follow them on Twitter for the discount code!

Every copy sold goes to helping the Young Australian Skeptics; they have a blog, a fantastic (seriously, it’s great – hear their Dr Eugenie Scott interview!) podcast and a new site in the works. So, check out the publication and add it to your skeptical library – it’s a great introduction for established and just-on-the-scene skeptically minded people to learn from:

The Skeptical Blog anthology features essays by: Dr Phillip Plait, Barbara Drescher, Dr Karen Stollznow, Sharon Hill, Dr Petra Boynton, Brian Thompson, Yau-Man Chan, Dr Chris French, Jack Scanlan, Laurie Tarr, Dr Amy Tuteur, Daniel Loxton, Jake Dickerman, Lisa Bauer, Desiree Schell, Michael Marshall, Andy Lewis, the Skeptics’ Guide to the Universe’s Evan Bernstein, Robert T Carroll and many others.

In the meantime, have a listen to the latest Token Skeptic podcast, on the Shuzi Qi bands: Episode One Hundred And Thirty Five – On Testing Shuzi Qi Claims With The Merseyside Skeptics

Today is the launch of a video by the Merseyside skeptics, called Testing the Shuzi Sports Band. In order to find out more about its creation, I spoke to Mike Hall of the Merseyside Skeptics.

In the video, you can see Vice-President Michael Marshall and other members of the Merseyside Skeptics put these so-called athletic enhancement devices to the test.

It’s already made a splash in the Guardian and Daily Mail newspapers and the Liverpool Echo in the UK! Head to the Merseyside Skeptics website for more.
