Edinburgh Skeptics Presents...
About This Show
Welcome to the Edinburgh Skeptics Society podcast. We'll be bringing you talks from our guest speakers on a variety of topics in our Skeptics in the Pub podcast. There'll be talks from areas such as science, social issues, politics, and lots more, all with a view to promoting reason and critical thinking.
You'll also be able to see what makes our guest speakers tick with our 10 Questions segment, plus there'll be bonus content along the way that doesn't fit anywhere else.
Do make sure you rate or review us, and get in touch and let us know what we're doing right (or wrong!). Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Our theme music is "Early Riser" by Kevin MacLeod (http://incompetech.com/).

SotF 2016: Michael Marshall Interview
2 days ago
Well, we did say that EdSkeptics regular Rumit Somaiya's talk would be out this week, but due to "scheduling conflicts" (heh) it will be delayed another week. We're really happy to bring you a great interview as an alternative, however, as newly-crowned committee member Heather Pentler talks to our old friend Michael Marshall about the media bring crap, weird medical claims and athletes' obsession with woo. Michael Marshall is the Project Director of the Good Thinking Society and the Vice President of the Merseyside Skeptics Society. He regularly speaks with proponents of pseudoscience for the Be Reasonable podcast. His work has seen him organising international homeopathy protests and co-founding the popular QED conference. He has written for the Guardian, The Times and New Statesman. Find out more at http://goodthinkingsociety.org/ or by following him on Twitter @MrMMarsh and @GoodThinkingSoc
