Skeptics with a K: Special #009 – Christmas Shambles

In this chaotic special episode of Skeptics with a K, Marsh and Dr Alice are drunk, special guest Emma has Kendal Mint Cake Liqueur, and Mike wonders what on earth is going on.

Be careful what you wish for from Skeptics with a K.

    Okay, that was interesting. I think at one point the fumes were getting to Mike Hall, because he sounded a bit slurred (though it may have been because he found it tiring to be around the other three).

    I am sure you will all cringe at listening to it now, but it was entertaining. It does remind me that when I was very small my parents decided to run their reel tape recorder when friends were over and they were doing the typical 1960s level of alcohol consumption (lots!).

    A little over twenty years ago my dad found that reel of tape, and amazingly was able to find a player to listen to it. He mostly wanted to hear the sound of my mother’s voice who had died in the late 1960s. Though what really threw him for a loop is that in their drunken state the two couples were really wishing that there was a way for toilets to automatically flush after use. Which was then something becoming common in many public toilets.

    Though I suspect these people wanted it because of their children not flushing toilets. Okay, I confess I was one of those kids. In kindergarten I sincerely thought ghosts would rise from the swirling waters. 😉

    Anyway, I hope you have all recovered. Have a good 2017.

    And congrats for Dr. Alice in getting her PhD! Woot!

    (I say this as a person who dropped out of grad school twice!)

    This was actually hilarious!

    Congratulations Dr. Alice, and happy new year all 🙂

    Was it really only 200 people who got to hear the Episode That Never Existed? I enjoyed it enormously and feel slightly privileged.
