About the Podcast


Skepticism Today is an hour long monthly skeptical podcast created by Dell Mitchell, Mark Honeychurch, Simon McAuliffe and Tim Atkin. We talk about recent news and events of interest to skeptics – both NZ based and international.

Regular podcast segments are:

  • News – items mostly, but not exclusively, from New Zealand.
  • Pick your Horoscope – a quiz to figure out which horoscope matches which host
  • Religion in 60 seconds – an overview of a religion, never as short as 60 seconds
  • Where the Hell – one news story, three possible countries. We try to figure out where the story came from.
  • Kiwi Scientist – a short biography of a New Zealand scientist
  • Calendar – a mixture of science and woo events happening in New Zealand over the ensuing month
  • Dumb Quote – a really stupid thing that someone of interest to skeptics said recently

Additionally there will be Interviews as often as we can arrange them.
