Skeptics with a K: The 2-year Anniversary Live Show


I’m sure we can all remember the momentous events of August 1st, 2009.

  • The Pope announced plans to release his first album (a trance-inspired collection of old-school anthems and breaking new beats, with pumping anti-abortion, pro-child-abuse, pro-men-in-dresses-condemning-homosexuality basslines).
  • The Quaker church agreed to begin performing same-sex marriages (sparking a trigger-happy rampage in which 10 Quaker ministers went on a same-sex-marrying spree, leaving six innocent bystanders legally tied, and wedding the entire QPR first team in a complicated polygamous tryst, which ironically boosted team spirits so much they achieved promotion to the top division the following season).
  • And, perhaps most importantly of all, three men and a microphone (in a somewhat disappointing prequel to the 80s classic movie) gathered in a dinosaur-wallpapered bedroom to talk pithy nonsense. Those three men went on to become joint Time magazine ‘Man of the year’ for 2047, controversially beating newly-elected US president Justin Bieber after a hideous accident left them fused at the hip and legally classified as a single entity. But back in 2011, they were three separate, discrete and clearly-defined individuals, with a podcast and a giant book of nonsense.

And so, for the second time ever, you can catch these men live, unedited and wildly-underprepared in their hastily-thrown-together second anniversary live show.

To catch the live 52nd episode of Skeptics with a K live video feed simply visit http://www.ustream.tv/channel/skeptics-with-a-k after 6.45pm TONIGHT. Plus you can join in the show with heckling and insults via the Twitter hashtag #SwaKlive. See you there!

    Will this podcast be available for those unable to listen to it tonight? (Unfortunately had very religious and easily offended family members in tonight.)

    Watching/following riots from here in California and feeling sickening lump in my stomach. I hear Merseyside police is warning people to stay indoor, so at least parts of this have made it to Liverpool.

    Please stay safe all of you.

    Was out watching a movie last nigh (son on sleepover, yeah!) and as we came out of the theatre just before midnight we saw a police car sitting on the parking lot watching, and several more as we drove home. [This would have been ~8 am BST.]

    This is in San Jose California! I don’t think we have had mob violence here since that ugly incident in late November 1933. That said, I sure hope we don’t have anything like the London riots here in the US soon. Waaaaay to many guns around.

    Please stay safe.

    Sadly our “broad”band wasn’t up to live streaming at that time in the evening, so I’m having to wait for the podcast :((
