Meet The Skeptics!

Kylie Sturgess came to my attention a while back as one of the many Australian skeptical activists who is out there beating the drum of rational thinking about as consistently as anybody. Kylie runs her own website, podcast, and blog all while somehow finding time to actually live her life.

She is an active skeptic and holds qualifications in Philosophy, Education and the measurement of paranormal belief. A teacher with over ten years experience in the field, Kylie has lectured on teaching critical thinking, feminism, new media and anomalistic beliefs worldwide.

If you are at any Skeptical conferences anywhere in the world, there's a good chance Kylie's there too. Make sure to say hello!

Having been a fan of Skepticality, I knew I wanted to get both Derek and Swoopy as guests at one time or another. For no logical reason, I simply asked Derek first and he gladly obliged. An interview with Swoopy is in the works (at the time of this publication) and you should see it pretty soon. For any of you who don't know, Skepticality was one of the first Skeptical podcasts out there and it set the bar pretty high in terms of quality production and entertaining. We have all been struggling to catch up ever since they set the standard.


To put it in scientific, technical terminology, Derek’s a bright cookie. We was at the forefront of the podcasting movement (pre-dating Steve Jobs and iTunes’ participation). He helps organize Dragon*Con, the annual Mardis Gras for self proclaimed science geeks. He hosts Skepticality with partner “Swoopy,” and he basically keeps the rest of us on our toes with keen insight and a no-holds-barred attitude toward spreading reason and scientific thinking.


In this interview we talked about Derek's stroke a few years back, Skepticality, Dragon Con, and several other things. Enjoy!
