Beast of Skeptic Check

By Phil Plait | October 4, 2011 4:18 pm

Every month or so I sit down (virtually) with my buddy Seth Shostak, and we record a short interview for Skeptic Check, part of the Big Picture Science podcast/radio show. Seth’s on the road right now, so they’ve put a "Beast of Skeptic Check" online, featuring some of Seth’s favorite segments. You can also just hear the part I’m in (talking Moon Hoax) on the Big Picture Science blog.

    It’s a weekly dl & listen. :) (As are Planetary Radio, Geologic Podcast, Skeptic Zone…)

    I think 95% of my phone use involves listening to podcasts, including this one.

    Best structured, most enjoyable ‘cast out there in the sci/skep world. Informative, fun and not afraid to dig deep….weekly must, for sure.

    I’m jealous. I have to pay my ‘virtual buddy’ to sit down with me and have a chat.

    I’m curious. Which one’s the beast?

    @6 Russ
    You beat me to it!

  8. @Russ (#6) Beat me to it as well. Dr. Plait has a starring role!

    Naughty mind of mine added an ‘r’ to the first word and changed the ‘e’ in the last word to an ‘i’ – a second or so later, I read the title as intended… :-)
