Hunting for Anomalies with Michael Shermer (Ep. 355)

Years ago, I read a book called “Why People Believe Weird Things.” It was terrific. I bought a dozen copies and gave them as Christmas gifts to my many friends in the mid-nineties – friends who believed in a variety of supernatural nonsense and pseudoscience, including but not limited to ghosts, UFO’s, ESP, telekinesis, crystal healing, any one of a hundred cults, and so forth.
The author, Michael Shermer, is the founder of Skeptic Magazine, and someone I’ve always wanted to chat with. This week, I did, and it was a lot of fun – and maybe even kind of important. Frankly, I can’t think of another time in my life when it has been more important to be skeptical – than right now. Not cynical, but skeptical.

Our whole conversation is here.
