Well, I may be on "The Skeptic's Guide to the Universe" podcast next week.
I attended their live recording today in Fairfield, CT, and I asked a question that may make the podcast (about skepticism and the economy) and I was able to do a "shout-out" to my son. I had a great time; I also have to say (to those who listen to the show) that Rebecca Watson is even more beautiful and charming in person than she is on the show.

I'll kick this next weekend when the podcast becomes available. Until then you can all [practice saying that you knew me back before I was catapulted to stardom....

2. OK, I'm on.
I ask the third question, about economics and skepticism.

I can't recommend this podcast strongly enough, BTW. If you've never heard it before, definitely give it a try:

4. I absolutely agree
SGU is the best long-format podcast out there focusing on skepticism. The best short-format, and best produced, skeptical podcast out there is Brain Dunning's Skeptoid, although he lets some of his rampant freemarket ideology slip through at times. CFI's Point of Inquiry is also excellent, although it has skeptical topics and guests, it's broader focused. I've also been enjoying the Little Atoms podcast of late.
