Better than SGU

If you like your skeptical podcast with less giggling and self congratulatory back slapping then this could be a good choice. I personally like my skepticism and science straight up. Thanks for a great product.

Bravo from an American

Although the podcast typically deals with Australian issues regarding pseudoscience and quackery, much of this is universal -even to an American like me. This was one of the first skeptical podcasts I discovered, and Susan Gerbic‘s interviews and promo spots on the show pushed me off the fence and got me to become a skeptical activist myself, and join the Guerrilla Skepticism on Wikipedia project. Now I do my small part to help fight pseudoscience and medical quackery on one of the worlds most viewed information sources. (Oh - and I even recorded a promo for Guerrilla Skepticism on Wikipedia which ran on the show!) Keep up the good work Richard Saunders and crew!

Intereseting and Informative

I listen to The Skeptic Zone weekly... I love the variety of topics and guest reporters. Richard Saunders is a great host. His regular contributor, Maynard is a hoot.
