See you here from 7pm on Wednesday April 23rd 2014.
Post show Hangout
QEDcon this year was an absolute blast, so we’ll be reviewing it this Wednesday April 16th at 7pm BST! It was a weekend full of talks, networking and socialising, and of course Tom got ear candled following losing a bet! If you’d like to share your views get in touch here, via email or on Twitter. See you this Wednesday!
We’ve managed to make it to 50 episodes so we’re celebrating with an open show! It also happens to be the last show before this year’s QEDcon so we’ll be previewing the weekend here. If you’d like to be on the show and share your thoughts on QEDcon or any other skeptical issues just email tom at skepticcanary.com. See you here on Wednesday April 9th 2014 at 7pm BST!
Join us here on Wednesday April 2nd 2014 at 7pm when we will be joined by Hazel Gibson, a PhD researcher at the School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences at Plymouth University. Hazel’s current studies focus on what people understand about geology, and she has previously worked at the Natural History Museum and as a Ranger at Mount St Helens. As always, you can get your questions in to the show via Twitter or email tom a skepticcanary.com. See you here at 7!
Join us this Wednesday March 26th as we are joined by members of Scottish skeptic societies to chat about skepticism in Scotland, including the fifth birthday of the Edinburgh Skeptic Society and the upcoming independence referendum. In fact, we’re looking for someone from the “no” camp to join the debate, so if you think you could be that person then get in touch either on Twitter or email tom at skepticcanary.com.
It’s a student special this week as Tom is joined by Chris Malburn from the University of Liverpool Humanists Society and Cloe Ansari from the South Bank Atheist Society to chat about the student humanist issues of the day. Watch the show live here from 7pm on Wednesday March 19th!
The Skeptic Canary Show returns next Wednesday March 12th at 7pm GMT. Your regular hosts will be joined by none other than Brian Deer, the award-winning investigative journalist whose vast body of work includes a series of investigations into one Andrew Wakefield that eventually lead to the ex-doctor being struck off the medical register by the GMC.
We will be asking Brian Deer questions about many of his investigations (we won’t just be talking about MMR!) so as usual we invite listeners to submit their questions via email to tom at skepticcanary.com and via Twitter. See you here at 7pm!
At 7pm this Wednesday your hosts will be joined here by Kevin Friery. Kevin works in mental health, so that will be the main show topic. We will also be talking about psychology and various areas of skepticism. As always, you can get your questions in to the show via Twitter or email tom at skepticcanary.com. We look forward to welcoming you right here from 7 on Wednesday!
