Interview with new JREF President D.J. Grothe

By Phil Plait | January 10, 2010 8:00 am

phil_dj_carlsagandayD. J. Grothe, the new President of the James Randi Educational Foundation, was interviewed by the folks at Pod Delusion. I’ve embedded the interview below (D. J.’s part starts around the 10:40 mark).

D. J. is a good guy, and I think the JREF is in excellent hands.

Tip o’ the electron to Jon Treadway, and James O’Malley for the embed.

    I liked their last president better! ;-)

    Still I’m sure Groethe the D.J. will do alright. :-)

    … & if it gives the Bad Astronomer more time to blog here then I gotta say that’s no bad thing. Or are you writing a book / doing a TV show / becoming addicted to tattoos / something else instead Phil? ;-)

    Off topic, sorry, but BA a question please – did you get to see any Geminids yourself & do you stillget the chance to go outside and do a bit of gazing up at the stars? I hope so! :-)

    Actually, Phil will be running for office, with the former governor of Alaska. It’s the thing to do, you know.

    When he gets Mrs. BAs permission…

    Dr Phil Plait & Sarah Palin … together .. running for the Presidency!!! Whoa! WTF?! :-O

    (Picks brain matter off monitor screen, inserts it back into shattered cranium.) ;-)

    Just a temporary misunderstanding. Sarah heard Phil wrote a book titled Death From The Skies and thought it was about the Rapture.

    Grothe was also interviewed by the folks at Skeptics’ Guide to the Universe in their current podcast. http://www.theskepticsguide.org/

    He’s got a goatee! Does that mean the JREF is a goatee organisation now? Will not-goateed people be discriminated against?
