Token Skeptic Podcast
About This Show
Why do we believe weird things? What does feminine intuition really mean? How do you become an effective activist for science and reason? Are you ready for a fortnightly show that poses these questions and more?
Tune into the Token Skeptic for a slightly more skeptical look at stories in the news, urban legends, good science, pseudoscience, and what makes popular culture pop.
Hosted and produced by Kylie Sturgess.

Token Skeptic Special Episode - DAAS My Part In Their Downfall - On The Road With The Doug Anthony Allstars
3 days ago
I have a new memoir, where part-way it says the following: "Here's what I hate about memoirs, the penchant on the author's part to dwell on the minutia of every aspect of their being." This isn't that kind of memoir - it's more like an account of being a part of numerous comedy tours run by a trio of Australian Hunter S. Thompsons, where Ralph Steadman has finally got a chance to get a word in edgewise. It's by Paul Livingston, a book called D.A.A.S: Their Part In My Downfall - On The Road With The Doug Anthony Allstars. As Flacco on cult comedy show The Big Gig, Paul Livingston was fearless when it came to crossing the boundaries of good taste and is now touring as the guitarist for the new version of D.A.A.S. He joined me for this interview with fellow-D.A.A.S comedian Tim Ferguson. Chaos naturally ensued.
