The Skeptic Studio #24

In this episode the women of Brainstorm take over. Angela takes the reins and Lisa, Cory, Rene, new host Basit, and the always amazing Dave had our patron, Will, on to get to know our top supporter. Then Basit talks a bit about finance and his thoughts on how debt can affect one's carbon footprint.

Making Big Pharma Transparent

Shift To Reason Radio #23

In a bit of a change for us, we had a guest in the Shift to Reason Radio portion of the show. Ian Bushfield joined Angela, Lisa, Cory, Basit, Rene, and the always amazing Dave to talk about a recent paper he took part in, on the transparency of pharmaceutical companies. Then we talk about scotch taping the end of your penis as a contraceptive, and we briefly touch on the sexist google manifesto situation.
