Skeptics with a K
Skeptics with a K is the official podcast of the Merseyside Skeptics Society. Each episode features Mike, Marsh and Alice chatting about stuff that interests them, often with a skeptical angle.
InKredulous is the skeptical, satirical, comedy panel show from the Merseyside Skeptics Society. The smartest, funniest and fastest skeptics around are invited to take part… and decline. So we make do with any old idiot with a copy of Skype.
Produced and presented by Andy Wilson.
Be Reasonable is the monthly interview show which talks to people who believe ideas contrary to the mainstream scientific and skeptical worldview. Be Reasonable is about approaching subjects with respect and an open mind, engaging with people of differing viewpoints in an environment where debate is polite and good-natured, yet robust and intellectually rigorous.
Presented by Hayley Stevens and Michael Marshall.

In this month’s episode we’re joined by psychic Rafael Dellal. Rafael, a clairvoyant and medium, spoke to us about his work, the tools used by mediums, how to spot a real medium from a fake medium and the ethics of psychic readings.
Regular listeners will note that Hayley Stevens is no longer involved with Be Reasonable – Hayley has left the show, having decided to take a break from podcasting completely. We thank Hayley for all the excellent work she’s done with the show and wish her all the best. Marsh will be taking the show forward alone.
