Hi there i am Luke, i am 22 and i am from Mansfield In Nottinghamshire. I am interested in Science, Skepticism and Magic (the sleight of hand stuff not “real magic”) and i am teetotal. I used to be in a few bands and sing also.
Might be starting a podcast sometime if things go to plan and i am also hoping to start doing magic at parties and events soon. I believe i started to get interested in Skepticism after watching Penn and Teller from that i started to listen to Penn Radio which then got be getting into podcasts such as SGU, Skepticality, Skeptoid etc. I think from these podcasts and my willingness and determination to learn more i have become quite adept at arguing the case of science and fact, which is always quite fun.
Ok so i made a podcast called the Skeptic Podcast Of Doom.
My favourite podcast has to be the Geologic Podcast with George Hrab, his musical brain coupled with his science talk always makes for interesting entertainment. More people should listen to this show so here is a link. http://www.geologicpodcast.com/
I also enjoy listening to the Itricks magic review podcasts hosted by Justin Robert Young and he also has other which he co-hosts called Weird things and NSFW. These must also be listened to if you like magic talk with a generous helping of stupidity.
Also there are a few English Podcasts i admire such as Righteous Indignation and Little Atoms. Good stuff.
There are so many podcasts with so little time to listen to them.
I have a routine of checking websites everyday such as:
www.randi.org – For all things to do with Skepticism and Science
www.itricks.com – For the best magic news and reviews
www.magicweek.co.uk – For magic news in England.
Some blogs which i enjoy reading:
