I am interviewed in a hot tub

By Phil Plait | August 10, 2010 3:00 pm

That was not a typo. My friend/part-time stalker Ashley Paramore interviewed me at TAM 8 during the "Skeptics in the Tub" after-hours get-together. So yeah, we’re in swimsuits, and she interviews me. It was my first time being interviewed in a hot tub, so that all by itself is rather exciting to me. For you, seeing me partially naked may curb that somewhat. YMMV.

The background audio is a bit loud, but it’s not too hard to hear us. The red color is due to low light conditions plus the weird lighting outside at the casino.

As usual when someone interviews me, I’m a smartass for the first few minutes, but then we get down to business: my tattoo, Bad Universe, Universe Today, Pamela Gay, and skepticism. I listened to the interview, and I have to say I pontificate an awful lot for a guy standing around in swim trunks. Still, I’m glad I got a chance to say some of that stuff. The last three minutes or so are actually rather important… they’re important issues to me, but also, I think, to the skeptic community at large. And I’ll have more to say on that subject hopefully soon.
