Apparently It’s Pi / Pie Day In The USA… Updates On Other Podcasting, Travel-Stuff

Movers and Shakers Radio Show Logo

Here is the logo (I made this! I've learned that "hipster" can be code for "I've done five lessons in graphic art!") for the radio show I contribute to. It is kind of pie shaped. You're welcome. Over here it's just March 14th. Or as we have it in our dating system, 14/03/2014. It's very, very confusing to see the US date system and risk screwing things up by thinking it's day/month/year when it's MONTH/day/year over there. At least, it has been whenever I've travelled and hesitated over … [Read more...]

Sean Faircloth – Reclaiming a Secular Australia – UWA Lecture From 2013

Way, way back when I did episode #155 of the Token Skeptic podcast (which was a long time ago now, it seems! But it was April, 2013) - I interviewed Sean Faircloth about his pending Australian tour. I had to express regret post-interview that I'd be away on the first holiday with my family since... well, since I can ever remember, really, and therefore couldn't attend his talk in my home town. But never fear. Filmed in Perth, and sponsored by the Rationalist Society of Australia and the … [Read more...]

Skeptics Have Been Busy On Wikipedia! #GSoW

Gay DYK

Thanks to Susan and her team, who seem to have more energy than most distant galaxies, there's a new update to the blog called Guerrilla Skepticism on Wikipedia. This one is all about the GSoW (as they're called) doing a lot of work over the past two months! Mostly new people are assigned what I call "backwards edits" mainly from podcast interviews. I've made spreadsheets with every episode of specific podcasts, and then assign the new editor the task of listening and relistening to the … [Read more...]
