Episode 20: Skepticism... sort of
00:00:00 - Just in case you don't remember who the Paleopals are they introduce themselves and introduce their drinks too! Patrick claims to have found a hard to find beer, Ryan has over-thought things again, Ben (who now has a bio!) represents the non-alcoholics and Charlie's drink is a surprise!
00:05:28 - Dr. Steve Novella of the Skeptic's Guide to the Universe stops by for a chat. A long chat. But it's all golden as Steve walks the Paleopals down the short road between SCIENCE and skepticism.
- In the interview we mention Episode 51 of the SGU (even though Ryan thought it was 53) and this online debate. Check them both out at the embedded links, totally worth your time.
00:54:13 - Terribly Happy is a movie not many will likely be able to see or even want to see but it ties in to a later segment of the show and it's all done in foreign talk. Has anyone even been to Dane-land? What's so Great about Danes anyway? Why would you name both a dog and a pastry after them?
01:03:00 - To be prepared for the future you'll need to know how to battle in space and Joseph Shoer is there to tell you how, the Paleopals break down the basics and help you decide what to watch to best give you the specifics. Physics ensues.
01:25:48 - The Odd-Man Out segment makes it's glorious return wherein Ben hasn't done his homework, nor was he supposed to. Charlie and Ryan talk lovingly about the trade paperback of Fell, and Ben does his part playing catch-up. Charlie uses the PaleoWOW: occidental, it may not be scientific, but it's a good one to know.
01:39:41 - The Paleoposse represents in this installment of the PaleoPOW! Reviews are read, questions are answered, goodbyes are said.
