Project Description

Skeptoid Podcast
The original award-winning production of Skeptoid Media, the Skeptoid podcast is produced by Brian Dunning. Each weekly episode takes an insightful look at some pop-culture phenomenon for which there is more interesting underlying science or true history. It entertains and informs while instilling the priniciples of critical thinking and scientific skepticism. The show is live and has been in weekly production since October 2006, with 654 episodes and 113,000 weekly listeners. Support
