Canada Speaks: This Week In Skepticism

From Flickr user sparetomato

Hi everyone.  It’s me again. If twice a week is just too much me, don’t worry.  Scott will be back next week.

Skeptically Speaking

Last Friday, Desiree Schell spoke with Dr. Kimberly A. Cote, Director of the Brock University Sleep Laboratory, about research into the relationship between sleep, cognition and performance..

This week you’ll have a chance to call in and question everything with sociologist and author Barry Glassner.  He will be discussing the recently updated addition of his acclaimed book, “The Culture Of Fear”.  Greg Laden will also be back on the show to discuss the whether it’s really true that the poor have more babies than the wealthy.  Catch it live at the website, listen on air, or subscribe on iTunes.

Radio Freethinker

This week the dudes at Radio Freethinker caught up with the wonderful Australian skeptic (or should I say sceptic?) Dr. Rachael Dunlop.  They also discuss the recent census scandal, stonehenge, and the results of the H1N1 vaccine program.  Find out more at their website.

The Reality Check

This week the Ottawa Skeptics discuss the recent census scandal, the link between 80′s TV shows He-Man and Dynasty (yes, really, you read that right), and Elan will answer the question, are blondes dumber than brunettes? If you wantmy opinion, it doesn’t matter. We all know that red-heads are where it’s at! Find previous episodes here orsubscribe on iTunes.

Think for Yourself

BC Skeptics Lee Moller and Dale Beyerstein discuss skeptical topics on their radio show, Think for Yourself.  You can listen live online or on Vancouver COOP radio every Thursday, or subscribe to the podcast.  You can catch their previous shows at the archives.
