099 – Skepticism 101 – The Australian Skeptics

We’ve all heard of the word sceptic / skeptic. It is used in many contexts – and there is a worldwide movement of people who identify themselves as “skeptics”. What does that entail? Who is a skeptic? What’s the difference, if any, between being a sceptic and being a skeptic? How does one become a skeptic, and how is it useful?

I visited a talk presented by the Australian Skeptics and after it had finished, I talked to Dr Rachael Dunlop, Dave the Happy Singer, and Richard Saunders – all well known within the Australian Skeptics movement.

    Thanks to you, British/American, I can define myself with accuracy! 🙂
