On this episode we look into skepticism and rationality, with the help of scientist Dr Adam Cardilini, host of VeganSci podcast. We particularly focus on how skepticism and rationality relate to radical, anarchist, environment, veganism, Left etc politics.

More specifically, we cover: “drop babies”, ghosts and “the Ghostbusters ruling”, GMOs, Derren Brown, alternative medicine, veganism and medication/vaccinations, atheist critiques of “new atheists”, and fresh versus frozen/tinned food.

We also return to the topic we covered last episode #203 and look into the (lack of) evidence supporting the arguments behind trickle-down economics.

If you enjoyed this episode, you may want to check out our episodes on atheism (#87 and #88) and fake news (#180 and #181). We also recommend the skeptic podcasts The Infinite Monkey Cage and Token Skeptic.
