So we tried to make a podcast!

Unfortunately our lack of planning shows, as does the absence fo the host Nautilidae and so we ended up with a very free-form, wide ranging converstion, just a chat among friends on a Saturday afternoon, and of course not necessarily well informed one! Still we gave it a go, and if you are really bored the Rational Skepticism Podcast Episode Zero can be heard here —
