The Brainstorm podcast is Saskatchewan’s first skeptic and atheist podcast. An eclectic group of local skeptics discuss a variety of topics relating to science, skepticism, religion and politics while having a few drinks and a few laughs.
“A chat with a scientist” episode link here:
Original release date: Dec. 21, 2013
This time around we had a real scientist on, Randy Tyson from Calgary skyped in with Mike, Rene and me to talk about everything from NOMA to climate change to Rush Limbaugh.
Edit:I’m not proud of some aspects of this episode. I certainly had some problematic ideas back then. Hopefully anyone who listens this far back will keep with us and check out newer episodes for evidence of our podcast evolution. This was our first episode in a studio though and we realized pretty quickly that we could never go back to doing things the way we were before.~Cory
