Exciting times at Skepchicks headquarters (i.e., my apartment). Last night I had a delightful conversation with Dr. Steven Novella, Yale University School of Medicine neurologist and his festive band of skeptical dudes from the New England Skeptical Society.

Lucky for all of you, this conversation was taped, and will soon be edited and published for the merriment of the masses via the NESS’s(s)(s) Skeptic’s Guide to the Universe podcast. You can download last week’s podcast (and weeks prior) either on iTunes or by clicking this link right here. Stay tuned to the Blog and I’ll let you know when my episode premieres.

Little did the respectable gentlemen of NESS know that not only was I fully intent on steering the conversation to female ejaculation (and I did!), but also that I was podcasting wearing nothing but Superman underpants.

As an aside, while attempting to find a photo of said Superman undies for your enjoyment, I was horrified to discover that apparently the best place to get them is on eBay. Gross. At that point finding a store selling the undies started becoming an obsession, and I stumbled across this site that claims there is a National Underwear Day in August. Personally, I can’t wait. So I’m heading out to for a few drinks after work and then stripping down in Copley Square; who’s with me? C’mon, guys! Pants are just a product of ancient superstition! True Skeptics (TM) don’t need pants! Pants are . . .

Oh, just forget it. You people are so lame sometimes.

Here’s where you can buy Super Girl undies of your own.

Anyway, I think that NESS and Skepchicks may team up to host a lecture/discussion/party here in Boston sometime in the next few months. I’ll let you know more as it happens.

In other Skepchick news, the March 15 issue is coming soon! March 15, in fact. We have a new managing editor helping out, and if you have material to submit or want to bounce ideas off us, e-mail Di, and/or send your letters to the editor right here.

  1. hmmm… Intellectual discussion about skeptical issues, beer, and possibly superhero underwear themed debauchery (even though I wear boxers :P)? Sounds like a blast. Announce if you require resources, such as a function room. I might be able to acquire such a facility at the Eastern Standards in Kenmore. Depends on the body count and all.

  2. H'mmmmmmmm.

    I never before realized how much insane, profligate fun skeptics were allowed to have. I'm more of a cynic, myself, but….
