In this episode of The Pseudo Scientists, the official podcast of the Young Australian Skeptics, Belinda, Richard, new panel member Tom Lang and I dive into the disparate worlds of the Curiosity Mars Rover landing and the 2012 London Olympics. Plus, Ted interviews Jay Novella, one of the hosts of the influential and renowned Skeptics’ Guide to the Universe podcast, on the link between skepticism and atheism, how the SGU got started, and how to live life as a skeptic.

This week’s “Houston, We Have A Problem” clip is the Turbo Encabulator. Sadly, it’s a parody. But it’s an hilarious parody.
