A truly excellent podcast

A marvellously intelligent and eye-opening collection. Mr Dunning reviews popular theories, beliefs and misconceptions with a sceptical eye, explaining in clear language and layman's terms why they are wrong, fallacious or just ill-conceived. If you appreciate intellect and value enlightenment, if you've ever felt suspicious of astrology, ghosts, aliens and UFOs, traditional medicine or any healing based on "energy", don't miss out on Skeptoid.
