Rationally Speaking is the bi-weekly podcast of New York City Skeptics. Join hosts Massimo Pigliucci and Julia Galef as they explore the borderlands between reason and nonsense, likely from unlikely, and science from pseudoscience. Any topic is fair game as long as we can bring reason to bear upon it, with both a skeptical eye and a good dose of humor!

We agree with the Marquis de Condorcet, who said that in an open society we ought to devote ourselves to "the tracking down of prejudices in the hiding places where priests, the schools, the government, and all long-established institutions had gathered and protected them."

Rationally Speaking is produced by Benny Pollak and is recorded in the heart of New York City's Greenwich Village.

Top Notch

Fascinating guests and a perspicacious host makes for interesting and informative dialogue. An easily digestible taste of academia for any science enthusiast. Highly recommended.

Galef is hands-down the most gifted conversationalist that I know of.
