Season 1

Our first season is a memorable one. As our very first season we had to figure out a lot on the way, but it all added up to a fun season with a lot of interesting topics. We hope you enjoy this archive of our first ventures.

001 –  What The Movies Get Wrong

In this very first broadcast, we introduce ourselves and ask what the film industry gets wrong, and the myths that have resulted.

007 –  Prophesies

In the wake of Harold Camping’s failed prediction of the Rapture, SkepticTV turned its attention to prophecies past, present and future.

Who has been right? Who has been wrong? Who has been so bloody vague that anything could be interpreted as fulfilling?

Note:
Our apologies for the audio quality and the beginning of the show not being recorded. This show wasn’t recorded by our regular Tech Guy and the broadcast equipment he has access to.

008 –  Quality of Evidence

This week our panel turned their attention to scientific evidence. Plenty of people put forward evidence for their claims, but does it match up to the rigor of the scientific method?

010 –  Good Skeptic Bad Skeptic

AnswersinBooks will be joined the panel again, as we discussed what it means to be a skeptic, and what separates a good skeptic from a bad one. What makes us confident that we’re in the right, rather than alternative medicine proponents, climate change skeptics and people who urge us to ‘Question Evolution’. What about those who refuse to accept anything they’re told? And do even we indulge in the odd irrational belief?

011 –  Riots and Civil Disorder

This week we took a break from our schedule to cover the riots happening in London and across the rest of the UK.

What’s the drive behind it? Ray Comfort blames it on atheists, is this the case?

We were also joined by one of the team organising the cleanup in London for her take on events.

013 –  Pandemics

This show was all about pandemics, from bird flu to zombies and everything in between. We also looked at the pandemics that the media promised, that never materialised. Is it all a hoax?

014 –  Conspiracy Theories

During this show our hosts donned their tinfoil hats and delved into the great cover-ups of our time. From Elvis Presley being alive to Paul McCartney being dead, from the moon landings being fake to 9/11 being an inside job and from UFOs attempting to conquer our world from the skies to New World Order bringing down our governments from beneath our own noses.

Are we being poisoned by big business? Is the government lying to us? Do we have overactive imaginations?

015 –  Morality

During this show our panel discussed their moral stances. How can atheists have morals without God? Why don’t we kill everyone we meet? Is homosexuality as sinful as eating shrimp? Answers to all these questions and more!

Note:
Our tech guy was a couple of minutes late with starting the recording of the show. Because of that the first few minutes of the show aren’t recorded. Our apologies for that.
