Garbage

It's totally dishonest to describe this as a "skeptical" podcast. Listen to the Michael Shermer episode for a prime example. The questions posed to Dr Shermer range from the barely cogent to the utterly non-sensical. By the end of the interview, Shermer can barely contain his irritation at the ridiculous questions. Avoid wasting your time on this credulous junk!

Not skeptical at all

This show claims to be a "skeptical", but it is no more than psuedo science supporters who throw in the odd bit of token skepticism. The show is nothing more than psuedo scientific thinkers trying to give their beliefs some creditability and is in no way skeptical or uses good critical thinking.

painful to listen to

I listened to a few of these, and really made an effort to remain open-minded. But the episode on psychic dogs (Jan 1 2007) has put me off listening to any more. Alex just comes across as gullible and highly credulous... it seems that he's simply out to defend Sheldrake's research against any possible criticism. This is *not* a skeptical podcast, don't be fooled by the name. Oh, am I the only one to get annoyed by Alex's repeated use of tired old cliches such as "let's have a dialog about this", "let's wrestle this issue to the ground" etc etc. By resorting to this tired "management speak " he just comes across as someone who's really not terribly bright.
