In this episode of The Pseudo Scientists, the official podcast of the Young Australian Skeptics, Jason and I talk about former No. 1 tennis player Margaret Court’s homophobic op-ed in the Herald Sun, and a group of doctors trying to ban the teaching of alternative medicine in Australian universities. Plus, I interview freakin’ PZ Myers! Yes, that PZ Myers. We chat about alien biology, getting more biologists involved in the skeptical movement and its conferences, and the role and impact of online skepticism (recorded at TAM 9 in Las Vegas, in July 2011).
PZ Myers, of course, blogs at Pharyngula over on the Freethought Blogs network.
This week’s “Houston, We Have A Problem” clip is everyone’s favourite ID proponent Stephen C. Meyer in an ad for the Discovery Institute DVD “TrueU: Does God Exist?”.
