It’s time for a weekly roundup of podcasts and other Canadian skeptical media.
The Reality Check
From Ottawa, Ontario, The Reality Check has some fascinating and entertaining content this week. Adam talks about Cesar Millan, the Dog Whisperer. Elan jumps in a Delorean to investigate the internet’s most famous time traveler, John Titor. (Well, most famous after JCVD, that is.) And Jon debunks the myth that Alice in Wonderland is all about drugs. The facts are much more interesting. Download this weeks’ show here.
Last week’s Skeptically Speaking was a retrospective of some of the best parts from the last 83 episodes. If you listen carefully, you’ll hear me speaking with a vegetarian homeopathy advocate. And that’s not even the best part!
This Friday is Cooking for Geeks with Jeff Potter, author of Cooking for Geeks: Real Science, Great Hacks and Good Food. From overclocking your kitchen appliances to recipes right out of a chemistry lab manual, they’ll explore how delicious cooking can be when you add a dash of nerd. And on Speaking Up, immunologist Dr. Gary Stadtmauer will explain the science behind food allergies.
Radio Freethinker’s episode #80 is up, and you can download it here. Is the chupacabra real? Is the world’s biggest Jesus in a small Polish town? Will the new Humanist media campaign be successful? And, what’s the evidence supporting supply-side economics?
Radio Freethinker broadcasts live on Tuesdays on CiTR 101.9 FM at 3:30 pm Pacific time. You can subscribe to the show’s RSS feed here, and follow them on Facebook, too.
Until next week!
