With Finn and the ever reliable Stephen!
We talk MAMMOTHS, footsteps & FOSSILS.. (with some immortal lobsters thrown in for good measure).. Nuclear Fusion may happen in our lifetime. or someone’s lifetime, but sadly not Jade Rabbit’s life time (rest in peace lil robot).
Speaking of robots and space.. there’s an Irish dude shortlisted for Mars One.
Oh we did talk about creationism and THAT debate.. we through in some thoughts on vaccines.. and then Finn had a good long rant about Homophobia.
Speaking of.. here’s Panti’s Nobel Call
and here’s the King Of Iona’s response..
It’s that time of year again, time for us to engage in a little shameless self promotion.
In 2013 we were short-listed for the award and were delighted with the honour, especially when such a fantastic podcast won Token Skeptic. Although after the rollercoaster of butterflies we suffered that night made us swear not to look for a nomination again, we are just gluttons for punishment!
If you enjoy our podcast and think it deserves a nomination, please head to the Skeptic website (http://www.skeptic.org.uk/) and pop us into the Best Podcast catagory. Nominations close on 15th February 2014.
Rebecca will be there on the night so if you want to see her squirm – nominate away!
Quick tribute to an awesome cat, Glitter and how George Hrab’s song Small Comfort (video) helped a lot. Would the Rainbow Bridge be like Cat Heaven in Earthworm Jim?
Finn talks about the idea of orphan drugs and she was going to talk about interviews but then decided against it…
Northern Ireland has a theatrical fail, why, oh why, oh why. All because we get “offended” so we have a chat about the Girl against Fluoride (shudder) and Panti. And then some parental rights, marriage equality and gay rights.
Our computers are haunted! The Postmodernism generator and going a little academically mad.
Our last one of 2013? See you guys on the flip side.
Or Skeprechauns The Reunion!
From space travel (real and fictional), one of us living among the homoeopaths, bellyaching about the Giant’s Causeway and perception of Ireland amongst other skeptics, heart-breaking Mars rovers, and Finn is a better person all round.
