Do like skepticism and radio? Do you like talking about your ideas to a wide audience? Here’s your chance. We at Radio Freethinker are looking for skeptics and freethinkers who want to come on the show to talk about news stories, events, ideas, and even big topics like ‘is there a God?’ ‘does homeopathy work?’ and “Bigfoot – what’s up with Bigfoot?’
Email us and let us know.
Pterosaur Lays an Egg
Rise in flood claims tied to climate change
PM targets party subsidies
Some of the questions we asked Erica:
When was the CBC aware that this episode would be so controversial?
Homeopaths also accused Marketplace of doing one sided journalism and only talking to inexperienced homeopaths, what’s your response to that?
To those of us who are skeptics we often see news stories try to issues as having two sides, which works for political and social issues but science doesn’t usually have two sides, was it a conscious decision to not fall into the trap of manufacturing a controversy where one didn’t exist?
