5.0 out of 5 stars Pseudo-science and myths beware! March 25, 2013
By Atheous
Verified Purchase
"inFact", the DVD, is the first collection of three minute episodes Brian Dunning produced based on his popular podcast "Skeptoid".

"inFact", like Skeptoid, packs much fact, science and skepticism, (quite understandable to the layperson) into it's episodes, exactly like the Skeptoid podcast. It gets right to the point at hand and is "non-confrontational" to help expose viewers to reliable information without belittling them. After all, we are all often mistaken on many particular facts or subjects.

"inFact", like Skeptoid, takes on popular beliefs, myths, legends and pseudo-science. For the podcast, references are provided and can be referred to by the subject of the "inFact" videos. Brian follows the method of scientific inquiry to arrive at the facts (or most reasonable conclusion) on a given subject, and provides trustworthy treatment of each subject. Corrections are often offered on the podcast when a discrepancy is pointed out, just like science.

All things considered, "inFact" is an excellent way to educate yourself and others, as Brian does the work of separating "the wheat from the chaff" for you. If you doubt a conclusion, you can always visit his website (Skeptoid.com) for references.

If you want to know more about Mr. Dunning, his web presence is broad and he has turned his passion for skepticism and science into a full time vocation. He speaks and does presentations at various skeptic conferences and public/private events, and noteworthy or famous skeptics are among his peers.

I recommend this DVD and his books (transcripts of the podcasts*) for school/public libraries and any youngster or adult as critical thinking training and a source of useful information.
