In this episode, we talk with Tom and Kate Borninski of Camp Quest Michigan. A secular  summer camp for kids of freethinking families.

Camp Quest is the first residential summer camp in the history of the United States for the children of Atheists, Freethinkers, Secular Humanists, Humanists, Brights, or whatever other terms might be applied to those who hold to a naturalistic, not supernatural world view.

While the Drunken Skeptics remain on hiatus, Chris flexed his interview muscle and brought us an interview with Ben Lillie and Brian Wecht of Story Collider.

Ben Lillie is a high-energy particle physicist who left the ivory tower for the wilds of New York’s theater district. He now writes and performs stories about science and being a scientist, and is a Moth StorySLAM champion. He also writes for TED.com, and likes to say that life is different now, largely because it is.

Brian Wecht is a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Michigan, where he works on theoretical particle physics and string theory. Additionally, he is half of the musical sketch duo Ninja Sex Party, in which he wears a ninja costume, remains silent, and plays the piano.

The Story Collider project aims to tell stories of how science interacts with out everyday lives. These stories are told by everyday people that share their happenings through monthly live shows, the Story Collider Podcast, or by the Pictures of Science endeavor.

The stories are always fascinating whether they are funny or sad or indifferent. I highly suggest you listen to the podcast or try to attend one of their live events. They are currently touring and meeting up with local story tellers.

The Drunken Skeptics will be back soon. Don’t worry.

In the mean time don’t for get to keep thinking/drinking.

While the Drunken Skeptics podcast is on hiatus, Chris got to talk with Dr. Robert M Price (Point of Inquiry, The Bible Geek) about something he’s particularly passionate about – the music and lyrics of Rush.  Dr. Price was a co-author, with his wife Carol Selby Price, on a book called “Mystic Rhythms: The Philosophical Vision of Rush.”

Robert M. Price is Professor of Biblical Criticism at the Center for Inquiry Institute as well as the editor of The Journal of Higher Criticism.

So if you’re a fan of Rush, or even if you’re not,  you’ll certainly enjoy this conversation.

Walking in an Underwater Land: Episode 6 of the Drunken Skeptics

Peter Sinclair

The Green Man himself

Well episode 6 is finally here for you!

Sorry it took so long, we had a bit of a meltdown at the MISkeptics command center / living room. We lost two computers due to a brown out.

But never mind that, there’s a podcast to talk about! In this episode we have a recording of a presentation that was given at one of our Get Togethers. Our speaker that month was Peter Sinclair of Climate Crocks. His blog and Youtube channel are simply amazing! He gave a wonderful presentation that we saved just for you.

We also give a small review of our previous episodes and as always we have our Whiskey and Shenanigans.

After you’ve heard the podcast, head over to Climate Crocks and get better informed.

I’ll put up the show notes this weekend. It’ll be a hoot :)

Brian Dunning Responds to the Skeptoid DDT Issues

DDT

It's actually called Kybosh...

Back in episode 4 of the Drunken Skeptics we had the honor of talking with Brian Dunning (Twitter) where he touched on a little of the heat that was coming down on his DDT episode.

Since then, there has been a buzz going around the skeptic community about it.

On our 5th episode, Bug Girl (Twitter) and David Gorski (Twitter) were our guests and the talk again veered toward the DDT episode.

Well Brian has an article over at Skepticblog where he talks about it. It’s an excellent read. Definitely check it out.
