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.
Joining Marsh this month on Be Reasonable is Harry Rhodes. Harry is a researcher and activist from Chemtrails Projects UK. You can find out more about Harry’s work at www.chemtrailsprojectuk.com
Iridology, naturopathy, acupuncture and Dad’s Army. Plus orgasms, Memento, glaucoma and the 2010 Winter Olympics Men’s Skiing. Still wondering what “rolfing” is, it’s Skeptics with a K.
Joining me this episode is Dr Eugene McCarthy from macroevolution.net. Eugene’s work explores the theory that a conventional view of evolution is incomplete, and that cross-species hybridisation played a significant role in the development of many modern species, including humans.
Pain, grapes, nectar and thermal paper. Plus hand sanitisers, thermal paper, french fries, Bisphenol A and rat paws. Avoiding till receipts because our hands are still wet, it’s Skeptics with a K.

This month on Be Reasonable we dip back into the archives for one of the most troubling interviews I’ve ever been involved in.
Back in 2010, reports emerged about a product called Miracle Mineral Solution – a pseudomedical panacea which was touted as a treatment for cancer, AIDS, malaria and Crohn’s disease, yet in actuality was much closer in chemistry to a form of industrial bleach. The founder and main proponent of MMS was Jim Humble, whose name quickly began to appear in the press, and who turned down interviews with the BBC and with the Guardian. He did, however, agree to speak to Hayley and me for our old podcast, Righteous Indignation.
It’s an interview that affected me greatly, and one I think about regularly, which is why I’d like to present it now, for the first time, in its unbroken entirety.
We are back! Again! With peer review, Back to the Future, replication, all the latest on QED… AND DEFINITELY NOTHING ELSE! Ahem.
Feeling rather sheepish, it’s Skeptics with a K.
Nicotine, marmalade, Monopoly and Grand Theft Auto. Plus the Bread Man, skeptical books and the Gateway Hypothesis. Feeding cocaine to mice, it’s Skeptics with a K.
