Your host is Andy Wilson (@InKredulosi) of the Merseyside Skeptics Society and director and co-organiser of QED conference. Appearing this time are:

  • Brian Thompson of amateurscientist.org where he hosts a number of excellent podcasts. Brian is also a writer for the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater in Los Angeles @Amsci

As ever thanks for your patience with the episodes and for listening.
