Then you'll be tuning into the episode of the Skeptic Zone this week?

We appeared at the conference and presented there. Head to:

www.skepticzone.tv

Especially since we're a BIG part of TAM Australia, happening in Sydney, November, 2010!

The world's first skeptical talk back show! Dr Martin Bridgstock and I are on it this weekend. It's available on podcast after.

Belief and Education
We’ll speak to Martin Bridgstock and Kylie Sturgess, who have recently completed one of the largest surveys of paranormal, pseudoscientific, superstitious and conspiracy theory beliefs in Australia.
They’ve studied how age, gender, religion, and voting preference relate to belief in the paranormal, and whether there’s a single underlying tendency to be “a believer.” Some of their conclusions are quite different than what we’ve seen in other studies.
What does this mean mean for skeptical education and outreach?

I haven't bumped this for ages and maybe there's a few people who might be interested in catching the show!

For those atheists who are skeptically-minded too - we've got the Young Australian Skeptics coming up on Friday, who'll you'll see around the convention. Jason Ball in particular, is heavily involved with the AFA and their podcast will be relaunching around the time the convention!

Other recent eps include a very, very funny skit by Stefan - so check us out at www.skepticzone.tv.

I like Skeptoid the best because he gets straight into it and it is interesting. You don't need to haver a prior knowledge or understanding of a subject to listen to it. There is no idle chit chat because its a one man show.

There is no membership, unless you're a Committee member? If you're paying them, you're only paying for the magazine. You may be interested in TAM Australia this year?
