Token Skeptic In New Zealand – And What’s Next At Dragon*Con!

Just a quick update about ‘What’s going on?’

Thanks to dodgy internet access and being far too busy just before my travels, I’ve yet to sort out the little hiatus in the Token Skeptic show with episode #77 (do note – the interview with Sara Mayhew and Jack Scanlan, Episode #76, is corrected and out!)… but I do have the slides from the talk I gave at the recent New Zealand Skeptics convention, held in Christchurch!

You can download the slides I used here for one of the talks: Token Skeptic Podcasting At NZ Skeptics Convention 2011 (pdf). The photo is taken by Gold, the Chair-Entity of the New Zealand Skeptics, just as I was talking about the podcast.

Thanks to everyone who made it such a huge success and such a wonderful opportunity. Special big thanks to Gold, Vicki Hyde, Michael Edmonds, the rest of the NZ Skeptics committee, the CUSP podcast – and Dr Martin Bridgstock for being a brilliant co-presenter (as always!).
