Episode 55 – The Land before Skeprechaun

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..

The Skeptic Awards 2014

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! :)

Episode 54 – Camp Skeprechaun

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.
