Xavier and I got together again and recorded another episode of our podcast. This week we talked about sexy sexy teenagers and flat Earthers on the internet. The video is below the fold.
Also below the fold is a plea for help with naming this damn thing. We don’t have a clue what to call it, so we’re throwing it open to the internet.
– Some background on (and a link to) the HPV study
– Wikipedia article on the Van Allen radiation belts
– A debunking of moon landing conspiracy theories, including the Van Allen belt one
– The book Ian held up
As mentioned above, we need some help naming this podcast. We’re three episodes in and haven’t really come up with anything snappy. My placeholder title has been “Getting Skeptical” but come on, that’s a terrible title. So we’re throwing ourselves at the mercy of you fine folks: help us come up with a name.
I’m also still interested in suggestions on how we can make the program better (yes, the audio thing. I’m working on it, I swear – it’s apparently much more complicated than I thought). Is there any format change you’d like to see us make? Did you like seeing Jamila on the show – should we have guests as a regular feature? How does the “let’s riff on one/two news items” theme work? Would you like to see more audience participation?
Anyway, leave your thoughts in the comments section!
