This saturday, starting at 19:00 GMT, SkepticTV will be doing a special 12 hour show to raise funds for the Secular Students Alliance (SSA):
The mission of the Secular Student Alliance is to organize, unite, educate, and serve students and student communities that promote the ideals of scientific and critical inquiry, democracy, secularism, and human-based ethics. We envision a future in which nontheistic students are respected voices in public discourse and vital partners in the secular movement’s charge against irrationality and dogma.
We have some very special guests and interesting topics for this 12 hour show. If you are willing and able you can bid on items in our fundraiser auction to support the SSA or donate an amount (items will become available during the show).
Here is the full program and trailer for the show as posted on SkepticTV:
So ladies and gentlemen with little over 24 hours to go I’m pleased to be able to announce the schedule! We’ve been waiting on the confirmation of some details and guests, there is one minor detail we’re waiting to pin down but aside from that the schedule is set and you can find it below!
Times will be on a 24 hour clock, the UK time first then EST followed by details of who is leading that hour.
19:00/14:00 – The show starts with the SkepticTV crew doing 2 hours of news, interviews and our usual banter.

05:00/00:00 & 06:00/01:00 – These two slots have still not been narrowed down as to who is doing what, you will either have SoundofScilence and the dino-rific c0nc0rdance as they tackle intelligent design creationism OR Womble doing selected readings from ‘The New Creationism’.
06:45/01:45 – SkepticTV and any guests that have survived will wrap up the show.
So there you have it, I will warn you now that my voice currently isn’t in tiptop condition but here’s hoping that it holds out till the end of the show!
The next important thing is how you can go about asking a question of the panel that are on at the time. You can try and send a message through the normal route via adding skeptictv to your skype, however failing that (as our tech guy will be working his socks off) you can also post a question via @skeptictv on twitter, contact any of the mods in the chat or you can post a question in advance on this thread. If it’s a general question for the panel then just ask away, if it’s directed towards a particular guest then make sure you include that!
Anyway, I hope you are all as excited about this as we are and we’ll see you tomorrow at 7pm GMT and 2pm EST!
