Here’s my conversation with Brian Dunning, who has been doing the award-winning weekly science podcast, Skeptoid, for over a decade. I started off by asking him to explain the difference between skepticism and cynicism, and then we were off and running on topics such as:

  • Why it’s so hard to convince people that what they believe is wrong;
  • Whether critical thinking is taught in our schools;
  • How to get Walgreens to stop selling homeopathic products;
  • How celebrities and TV networks promote pseudoscience and erode public interest;
  • The upcoming release of the final bits of paperwork on the JFK assassination.
