Apologies for the delay due to jetlag, travel and settling in back home before getting back into podcasting again. Here’s an interview about a great new online resource for young skeptics! To help kids to grow into intelligent, critically thinking adults, Robert Todd Carroll, author of the fabulous Skeptic’s Dictionary, has written just the thing: The Skeptic’s Dictionary for Kids.
We talk about the origins of the site and how he first began this extensive online resource; his work as a teacher of critical thinking and the future of scientific skepticism, particularly the ongoing (and much needed) discussions on just what makes skepticism ‘skepticism’.
The Skeptic’s Dictionary For Kids is featured at http://sd4kids.skepdic.com.
The Skeptic’s Dictionary was published in August 2003 by John Wiley & Sons. The Skeptic’s Dictionary online (for all ages!) is at http://www.skepdic.com.
