Skepticality:The Official Podcast of Skeptic Magazine
Summary: Bringing truth to podcasting, and all who choose to listen. Derek and Swoopy are your hosts, filling your pod and your brain with skeptical insight and conversation, sometimes heated, on a plethora of topics that are ripe for critical examination. We're tired of pertinent social and science news being buried by clap trap. Our podcast is here to bring you relevant, under reported current events, as well as in-depth discussions from a scientific, critical, skeptical, and humorous point of view. In our travels we will tackle the beasts of pseudoscience; the paranormal, supernatural, ufo / alien encounters, mis-understood history, and overwrought legends - urban or otherwise. People will believe anything. Why is that? Here at Skepticality, we're calling out the crap, debunking the bunks and taking a serious look at the plethora of flim flam that is clogging our history books and drowning the mainstream media in a tidal wave of hornswoggle. Anything but orthodox, occasionally silly but always topical, Derek Colanduno is your podcasting guide to the truth. Cohort and cohost Swoopy is the resident misanthrope, questioning Derek to the limits of his patience, and sometimes his sanity.
