token skeptic site

I'm kind of surprised that some other local podcasts haven't been doing this more, but I've had a number of opportunities to speak to people as a part of the Perth International Arts Festival and the Fringe Festival... so why not organise them all together in a few special episode podcasts?So, here's what's been uploaded recently, with huge thanks as always to RTRFM and the Patreons who pay for the podcast hosting:Token Skeptic Episode #212: On PhD’s In Anti-Science And The Fading Sym … [Read more...]

Perth Fringe World Festival / PIAF Picks #atheism #skepticism #science #fun

Screen Shot 2016-01-18 at 2.45.36 PM

It's kind of obvious (well, in case you missed it - this is Patheos...) that I have a tendency to see local Fringe and PIAF shows that are supportive of science, skepticism, atheism, philosophy, literary, freethinking, secularism and so forth.If someone's dressed as Jane Austen or Darwin (or both - I keep hoping!) - or points out that religious extremism has a funny side, as well as making you think about the unfunny elements and what positive things could be done about it... or does a … [Read more...]

So, Perth talkback radio station 6PR interviewed a notorious anti-vaxxer on Australian Perth radio this morning, in regards to the newly implemented No Jab, No Pay legislation. It wasn't good.If you missed what No Jab, No Pay involves - here's a summary.So despite many of us feeling......I'm wholly unsurprised, because if you've got radio producers who are pressed for time (especially during these odd seasons, when usually they'll do some good research when it's not a public … [Read more...]

Token Skeptic Podcast Episode. And Another Token Skeptic Podcast Episode. And #PodcastDay!

https://instagram.com/p/7Uie1KufcN/

It helps if I can remember how to get back into the blog... so I can blog.How is everyone? I've just recovered from three weeks without a voice, which pretty much removed my ability to do anything at all for most of September - resulting in three podcasts in quick succession as October rolled in. Mama's gotta pay for the hosting fees of the show after all.I'd outline exactly what it was like, but I think this photo of my wait to get a blood test is as best as I'm going to get without … [Read more...]

If This Is Fascism, Leunig – I’ll Take Community Immunity, Thanks.

Kaz Cooke on Leunig

Leunig is a funny one, as they say over here in Australia.We all seem to love the man with the teapot and the duck; the aphorisms and the poetry, and the simple line drawings that have been around ever since I was a child. I even enjoyed seeing a documentary about him and his influence on Australian cartooning, done a while back.Then as an English teacher, this cartoon about creches was used in an examination ("thoughts of a baby lying in a child-care centre"), with the request … [Read more...]
