SIO118: Intercontinental Culture Wars, with Michael Marshall

Michael Marshall is the host of Be Reasonable and co-host of Skeptics with a K. He is heavily involved in the UK Skeptic movement, and has been somewhat alarmed by the state of movement atheism in the US. We talk about some of the differences and possible reasons for them. Later in the show, he takes us through a very difficult article he co-wrote about Jonathan Bryan – a child with severe brain damage who seems to be able to read and write at a precocious level… but only using facilitated communication. It’s a sensitive story but one where skepticism is sorely needed.

Here’s the awful, racist Sargon clip I referenced.
