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.
This month, Marsh chats to Robert Currey – an astrologer and researcher with Equinox Astrology.
Vitamin C, breast milk, Noah’s Ark and cancer. Plus HIV, the Tower of Babel, the Big Questions and half a football pitch full of elephants. With some big news from Colin, it’s the end of an era for Skeptics with a K.
