New Token Skeptic Podcast – On Savita Halappanavar – Interview With The Skeprechaun Podcast

This episode focuses on my questions of the Skeprechaun Podcast – produced by two Irish skeptics Rebecca and Fionnula, looking at their excellent episode #33 called “For Savita”.

Both episodes contains potentially distressing content, as we both talk about the death of Savita Halappanavar.

While the podcasters Rebecca O’Neill and Fionnuala Murphy of Skeprechauns have lively, entertaining and often humorous takes on issues involving skepticism and science, their most recent episode looked on the death of Savita Halappanavar, 31, from India, who died of septicemia on October 28 2012 – four days after asking for medical termination. As of the release of this episode, Savita’s family have given the Irish government until this Thursday to agree to an independent public inquiry into her death or face a European court battle.
