Okay - confession.

We're not that new. We're just still in the wrapping paper.

Because when you've interviewed Dr Karl Kruszelnicki, Dr Steve Novella, Derek and Swoopy, Brian Dunning, Dr Phil Plait, James Randi, Ben Radford and Dr Eugenie Scott, amongst many others - and many more to come....

... and we and regularly score top position as No #1 Podcast in Australian iTunes for Social Sciences...

... well, _someone_ must point out that we're doing pretty well as the 'baby of the skeptical podcast family'.

By the way, the term 'babe' may or may not have been used in conjunction with Dr Rachael Dunlop, Dr Karen Stollznow, Tiffany Day, Amanda Rose, Kylie Sturgess and Richard Saunders. Certainly we've had a few hits from Google searches for 'how to contact' in regards to all the above names.

Take into account Jayson Dunlop, Michael Wolloghan and co-host Stefan Sojka - you might very well say that we're un-missable babes. The jury is still out on that.

In the meantime, you should be making your own judgment by checking out our show at:

www.skepticzone.tv
and subscribing on iTunes!
Our official blog is at www.skepticzone.wordpress.com - feel free to zip us feedback and reviews on any of those links.

We may write back if you call us something nicer than 'babes' in a review, by the way. We will certainly be very happy. :)

Skeptic Zone is a very good podcast, indeed. It gets my recommendation, for whatever that is worth...

Uncertainty may make you uncomfortable. Certainty makes you ridiculous.

Why not question something for a change?

I was getting a few hits on the old 'wordpress' site and thought that might need clearing up. Don't forget, we're open to answering any qu about the show - and feel free to review us on iTunes! :)

Well, now you've done it podblack! I was going to use your The Deist Skeptic - Not A Contradiction discussion with Dr. Mark Henn as my "Evil Pick" in an upcoming "Skeptic Summary".

Must skeptics be atheists is a never ending debate it seems. I fall into the big tent school of skepticism, and the idea that skepticism is a process and not a conclusion was articulated well in your blog.

But you let the cat out of the bag (even though you never knew it was in the bag.) Anyhow, great blog!!!

I just flew back from my holiday... Roughly 20 hours of trip in total, most of which was spend catching up with your podcast... Thanks a lot!

Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

YAY! :D :D

Hell, done similar things myself - got another trip to the USA on the cards at the end of the year.

The next ep will feature a man whose books have in fact managed to allow me to survive long-distance travel : Jon Ronson. Out this Friday, hope people are subscribing! :) www.jonronson.com.

We have featured "Them" as a recommended book in one of our summaries a couple of years ago. Great book. Lots of fun. I must listen to the podcast.

Credit goes to Richard Saunders, who did a lot of work whilst on the cruise getting all the interviews together. He's a lovely guy, I hope people who are going to TAM7 or Dragon*Con pop over and say hello. :)
