Skeptically Speaking – Website is Up

Posted in Uncategorized by Desiree on March 20, 2009

Hi everyone, the new Skeptically Speaking website is now live (though still a bit rough around the edges in a few places.) Well, what are you waiting for, go take a look.

Note: no new story-related blog posts will be added to this site from now on, though links to new episodes will continue to be for the next while to help transition things with our podcast subscribers.

Secularism in Alberta

Posted in news, upcoming shows by Desiree on March 15, 2009

Next time we’ll be talking about the state of secularism with Cliff Erasmus, Executive Chair of the Centre for Inquiry Alberta.

With the recent launch of the “There’s Probably No God” bus ads in Calgary, atheism has hit Alberta’s mainstream media.

But why is it so important to talk about it now? What’s going on in the province that’s bringing the atheists, humanists and other secularly-focused folks out of the woodwork?

Could it be the teaching of creationism in our small-town public schools? Or the fact that megachurches from Texas have recently moved in? Or is it a product of a more general cultural shift?

Find out what Albertans are up to on the all new next Skeptically Speaking (formerly known as Q Transmissions), every Friday at 6pm on CJSR.

Note: Yes friends, we have a new name, a new format and a new website going LIVE this week! Keep checking this blog for details.

Another Radio Station Rebroadcasting Q Transmissions!

Posted in news by Desiree on March 6, 2009

cityWIDE FM, a brand new radio station in Madison, Wisconsin, hosts a show called “Science for Skeptics”. Every Friday they rebroadcast interesting skeptical and science programming, and they’ll be airing Q Transmissions on a semi-regular basis. You can’t listen to their programming online yet, but we’ll keep you posted.

Any listeners from Madison that happen to be reading this, welcome!

That brings us to three additional stations carrying the show. Please see the Links page for a list of affiliates.

Thanks so much for all the support!
