Respectful Insolence

Drunken Skeptics? Are there any other kinds?

If there’s one area where I’ve been remiss, it’s been in promoting new skeptics groups. Maybe it’s the enormous Orac-ian ego. Maybe it’s sheer laziness. Maybe it’s becoming too engrossed in work and my two blog projects. I will try to rectify that in the future beginning by flogging a new skeptics group from my hometown. Well, not quite my hometown, but southeast Michigan nonetheless. I’m referring to the Michigan Skeptics Association, which now has a blog, has had a meetup, and has announced a new podcast dubbed the Drunken Skeptics Podcast, which will debut soon. It’s to be hosted by Adam Bourque (founder and president of the MSA), Michelle Lester-Bell, and Chris Lindsay.

Hmmmm. Whom do you think should be a guest on the podcast?

Between the new Michigan Skeptics and Skeptics in the Pub events hosted by CFI-Michigan‘s southeast Michigan chapter, maybe Drunken Skeptics is an apt name for the new podcast.

    Thanks for the mention, Orac. We’ll be posting episodes soon.

    One step ahead of you, we’re already targeting…Mark Crislip. Heh.

    Thank you for the shout out! Do you think there’s anyone with an ego big enough to be able to hold up to the Drunken Skeptics?

    Chris, don’t be an asshole. Orac, of course we’d love to interview you. I’ll take a fifth of Jameson and a six pack of Guinness (cans, please). And whatever you and the boys want to drink.

    It has become apparent that the world needs more Orac — check out his past stellar performance on the SGU podcast. So Chris, don’t be an asshole. Gimme Orac.

    There seems to be quite the skeptic collection there in Michigan. There also seems to be quite a bit of militia activity as well. Now it would be truly, truly awesome if these could be combined.

    Just think of it, the Drunken Skeptic Militia. Truth, alcohol, and firearms. Pharma-shill my a$$, now it’s a Pharma para-military!

    A Study that could drive a skeptic to drink.
