A New Podcast!

Because an hour and a half every week just isn’t enough, we’re now doing regular episodes of The Skeptics’ Guide 5×5, five minute episodes on a single topic. This week’s just went live today, and it’s all about those crazy Brits and their love of alternative medicine. Enjoy!

  1. great! will these eventually be carried by itunes, so i can automatically download them and not miss any?

  2. Frankiemouse: yep, the first should show up on iTunes any moment now. It takes a little while for the initial show to get there, but I think after that it should update as quickly as always. Which is, uh, not always lightning fast, but good enough to make sure you don't miss any.

  3. Rebecca – the only reason I haven't subscribed to your Podcast in the past is because it takes too damn long. You may have just won yourself a new listener!

    Is there going to be a separate RSS feed for the 5×5?

  4. Yay! Fabulous work guys, keep us posted on when and where to find it on iTunes.

    Though maybe I should be worried that I'm getting so much of my news about what's going on in my country from the US. Charlie is still a pretty widely comical figure by now, though, at least in the media I pay attention to.

  5. I don't know. After my long committed relationship to SGU, this feels like a cheap meaningless fling. I suppose if there's no love, it's not really cheating ;)

  6. Well, as Mae West once said, "Skeptical Podcasts with love are a wonderful thing. Skeptical Podcasts without love ain't bad, either."
