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...]

How Was Your Skeptical 2015? (Goals, Books, Events And Resources For 2016) #Perth

January noodle palace

I've been looking over my calendar for early 2016, adding events and plans, and it's led me to check back over the past 12 months of achievements and activities... and there's been a lot!From the very beginning of 2015, it's been a mass of radio shows, podcasts, fringe events and big events, travel and work. Focusing my energies on projects and events that reach a broader demographic (rather than wasting time and even hard-earned money preaching to what can be a weird-skeptic-minority choir … [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...]
