Interview with Michael Shermer airing Jan 23 on 99.5FM
From a 10-step “Baloney Detection” guide to investigations into alien abductions, 9/11 conspiracy theories, creationism, therapeutic magnetism, and Bigfoot, Dr. Shermer’s new book, Skeptic, presents readers with the tools necessary to think critically about everything, from innocent but misguided assumptions, to baloney, bunkum, balderdash, and bullsh*t.
Dr. Michael Shermer is the founding publisher of Skeptic magazine, founder of the Skeptics Society, author of books including Why Darwin Matters, The Believing Brain, The Moral Arc, and the subject of our discussion, Skeptic: Viewing the World with a Rational Eye, released last week and published by Henry Holt. In addition to Dr. Shermer’s books and magazine, he is also a monthly columnist for Scientific American, a regular contributor to Time.com and a Presidential Fellow at Chapman University.
