Curating SkepticTV

SkepticTV-logoAfter a good run of almost 3 years SkepticTV will sadly cease to exist (I was the broadcast technician for them). The past 3 years were extremely fun and eventful with our show, the many guests we’ve had, and us appearing as guests on other shows. We also made a difference through the fundraisers we held.

But unfortunately a lot of us had trouble finding the time for keeping the show, website, and our social media accounts running. It takes a lot more time to run a 2 hour live show about scepticism than most people realize. Most of us also have their our own projects, jobs, education, and other real life obligations competing for time. As it wasn’t fair to burden those that still had some time with the sole responsibility to keep SkepticTV running the decision was made to discontinue the show.

As a result I’ve taken ownership of the SkepticTV content on our social media accounts, the accounts themselves, the website and it’s content, and any further licenses. This also means that all email addresses that were in use for SkepticTV now redirect all messages to my inbox.

With me taking ownership of the content on the SkepticTV website there will be a couple of changes on this website. The content that’s hosted on the SkepticTV website will be migrated to Real Sceptic. The initial import will happen this Thursday and after that I’ll be moving some files and images manually to complete the migration; this could take a couple of days. There is a chance that this might cause a couple of display issues on my website (most likely during the initial import) and some accidental notifications.

So my apologies if this happens and regular services will resume after this migration.
