The Atheist Academic VI: Where You Should Put Your Penis
Originally posted on School of Doubt — you can read The Atheist Academic columns on Saturday mornings, usually. Back in college, I was a volunteer rape crisis counselor.

Skeptics' Circle & The Amateur Scientist Podcast!
I know that Skepchick is just swimming in good content today, but I wanted to jump in and post two links: 1. The Skeptics’ Circle is up on the Conspiracy Factory. Lots of fantastic stuff organized around a rather Buffy-esque storyline! Thanks to Elyse for keeping the Circle updated on the goings-on here at Skepchick. (Also, did we link to…Read More »
