    Now I may be accused of bias here but I want to go on record as officially labeling this episode as EPIC!

    It didn’t come up directly on the show but I’ve always found this interview to be a little inspiring on the topic of how to approach being a good Skeptic:

    Thanks again for having me H&D, it was a lot of fun.

    (Also, please double check the spelling of my name in this post, hehe.)
