Podcast #56 – Tim Farley (WhatstheHarm.net)

We interview Tim Farley, creator of the website WhatstheHarm.net (an invaluable database of death and destruction caused by alternative medicine, superstition, lack of critical thinking, etc.).  Tim has also given talks and organized seminars to teach skeptics how to be better communicators–check out Skeptical Software Tools.

Look for Tim at Dragon*Con in September, but first! he’ll be seminarifying at The Amazing Meeting, July 9-12 in Las Vegas (yes…Nevada).

Father’s Day is this Sunday (June 21st)!  That means a very special patriarchal installment of Holey Scripture.  Hide the children.
