This week our team welcomes Susan Gerbic back to the show to talk about her and Mark Edward’s sting operations to reveal psychics and their techniques in conning people and why Wikipedia is probably the most important asset in the hands of skeptics in the never-ending fight against pseudoscience and quackery. And this is also a call for new editors from around the world to join the international team she leads, Guerrilla Skepticism on Wikipedia.
Segments: Intro; Greetings; Interview with Susan Gerbic; Farewell; Outro; Out-takes
To celebrate, we interviewed some of the superheroes of skepticism who have already been on the show and could accept our invitation to come back for a quick update.
Our guests were Gábor Hraskó, who was our guest on episode #001, Natalie Grams whose new book is out, Michael Marshall who talked about some new achievements of the Good Thinking Society, Liubomir Baburov and what’s planned for the future of Ratio, Sean Slater and what to expect from Skeptics on the Fringe in 2018, Massimo Polidoro and his new book along with news from CICAP and Susan Gerbic checks in together with Richard Saunders to finish the show with what was definitely the largest span of time zones in the history of our podcast.
Thanks for bearing with us and please keep listening to The ESP as we intend to stay.
