Catching up on my podcast listening...

With a family wedding in June and TAM9 in July my personal schedule has been pretty busy lately. Long story short: it's taken me a while to catch up on a backlog of podcasts that I listen to. Being a good, obedient skeptic one of those podcasts is, of course, the Skeptics Guide To The Universe.

So I'm sitting at my desk listening to their episode 313. Good news stories and an interview with Matthew Chapman about his movie The Ledge. It's all fine and good until they get to the "Science Or Fiction" section. Then I got angry, not Hulk angry, but peeved.

Steve Novella's "Science Or Fiction" category that week? Can you tell the difference between real George Bush quotes or a fake George Bush quote. Episode 313 of SGU is dated 7/10/2011. A full THREE DAYS after I posted the "George Bush or Will Ferrell As George Bush" Poe's Corner from our 7/7/2011 episode 013. Oh come on! It's bad enough you folks have a great show with thousands of listeners, but you have to (allegedly) steal ideas from us pip-squeaks!?!

Of course you realize Mr. Novella, this means war!

  1. See? The interwebs, having stolen my ability to think and remember, caused me to completely overlook this slight against our burgeoning podcast. To the pitchforks and torches, townsfolk!
