Welcome back listeners and thanks to everyone for the supportive messages and Tweets about the Token Skeptic podcast’s win in the Ockhams Awards at the recent QEDCon! I’m very proud to have been selected by the judging panel, after seeing the very impressive competition that I was up against – please do check out all the finalists and winners, which will soon feature on the www.skeptic.org.uk website.
Speaking of skepticism, I was very impressed with a document that came out last month by Sharon Hill, which features on the Doubtful News website. It’s called The Media Guide To Skepticism and features some fascinating tips and guidance for anyone interested in finding out more about skepticism. Sharon Hill has recently started writing for the Huffington Post at http://www.huffingtonpost.com/sharon-hill and you can also find her monthly column “Sounds Sciencey” over on the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry website.
Sharon Hill is a researcher specializing in the interaction between science, the media and the public. She is an advocate for scientific skepticism and the editor of DoubtfulNews.com – a critical thinking weird news blog.
