Skeptoid Podcast
---------------------


Each weekly episode focuses on a single phenomenon — an urban legend, a paranormal claim, alternative therapy, or something just plain stupid — that you've heard of, and that you probably believe in. Skeptoid attempts to expose the folly of belief in non-evidence based phenomena, and more importantly, explains the factual scientific reality.

From the sublime to the startling, no topic is sacred, politically incorrect though that may be.

(Please note, not all features are available for all episodes.)

This app works great on the Fire. I love the shows and the ability to see the archive of all. The app works smoothly and runs each podcast without any delay. Content is fun and interesting. Get this.

I am a skeptic so I really enjoy listening to this man take down many illogical and plain untrue myths. He presents the item and dismantles falsehoods in a logical way. Opinions aren't fact and it is refreshing to see facts, logic, and intelligence used to show the difference. Brian Dunning can be blunt and grating at times but usually in response to people using opinion and/or twisting half truths to their purpose. He has a wide cache of older podcasts and I think the first ones anyone should listen to are those where he breaks down different ways of debating and using half truths to confuse. He also flat out explains there are some people who insist on their viewpoints no matter what is shown and that really it isn't worth your frustration to try and dissuade. Sometimes, particularly with environmental matters, I strongly disagree with him but that is part of being a free thinking audience. Learning how to debate and avoid pratfalls such as a straw man argument is a valuable lesson

I enjoy the podcast. Already had the app from Android market place. Bought again from Amazon marketplace for my Kindle Fire. Even though I could have extracted to Apk from my Droid 3 and installed as third app on my Kindle:) Just to support the podcast.

Slow start, waiting with black screen, no easy access, no search, no read tag.
This is not enough with 400 episodes.

I have only listened to one episode of this podcast, so I have limited experience. I plan to listen to more, but I have to admit, I found the one I did hear kinda boring. It was the host just reading. I prefer the shows that have guests. It functioned fine and the site was easy to negotiate.
I now listen to every episode of this podcast. It IS the host reading, but he's reading interesting stuff!

Brilliant. Been after something like this for a while. Top Notch. It is very informative and substantial. It answers so many questions you may have always wthought that cant be real with the proven facts adn backstory.
