John Rael is a Skeptical Comedian who has been producing a series of videos for several years now. The Skeptically Pwned series takes on all types of woo via a less traditional debate approach..... Moving beyond "Skeptically Pwnd," John has also gained a level of notoriety for making a short documentary about giving away his vote (apparently legal) and a series titled "Shit Skeptics Say" as seen in the first installment below.

Sean Carroll is a theoretical cosmologist specializing in dark energy and general relativity. In other word, this dude is smart. I had been watching his Dark Matter, Dark Energy course from The Great Courses when I happened to also hear him interviewed on The Skeptics Guide to the Universe. I knew then that I wanted to have him on my show.
A few months later, I ran into him in an elevator at TAM only hours after watching one of his lectures on the airplane out to Las Vegas. We chatted for a few minutes as I tried to act cool. After TAM, I shot him off an email inviting him on the show and he readily accepted. So, enjoy!
