Be Reasonable is a podcast from the Merseyside Skeptics Society, with Hayley Stevens and Michael Marshall.
Each monthly interview will examine beliefs from outside of the mainstream, exploring how those views are constructed and what evidence people feel supports their case.
We believe in approaching subjects with respect and an open mind, engaging with people of differing viewpoints in an environment where debate is polite and good-natured, yet robust and intellectually rigorous.
