It’s a surprise new episode! Featuring Icelandic elves, alien origins, faith-based decisions and the tensile strength of Bounty bars. Plus lizards & sunburn, mountains & nudity, pamphlets & evolution and sugars & fat. Only a week late, it’s Skeptics with a K.
Skeptics with a K
Skeptics with a K is the podcast of the Merseyside Skeptics Society, recorded and edited at the region’s internationally-renowned Summit Studios. Each episode features Mike, Marsh and Colin 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 episode we interview Deborah Houlding, who creates and reads Horary astrological charts to find an answer to people’s questions.

Featuring special guest host Geraint Parry!
This month on Be Reasonable we speak to intuitive Jacqui O’Reilly. Although not comfortable with the label ‘psychic’, Jacqui believes she has an ability to make readings and predictions with unnerving accuracy, and discusses the use of her abilities in locating missing persons, as well as the need to test her skills scientifically.
OooooooOOOOOooOooooOOoooo it’s the spooky Halloween episode of Skeptics with a K! Featuring poisonous venom infections, petrified giants, trick or treaters and, er, promiscuous students.

Question of the Week
On the assumption that donating to a food bank is a Good Thing, should we donate to Christian food banks in the absence of a secular alternative? Is it okay for the church to use donating products as a tool to proselytise? What about corporate food banks? Answer in the comments below.
This month on Be Reasonable we speak to American UFO researcher Michael Horn.
