Atheists Talk--Carrie Iwan

Skepchickcon/Convergence Skeptics Track 2009
Atheists Talk #0073, Sunday, June 7, 2009

Skepchick is a group of female (and one "deserving" male) bloggers dedicated to the idea that skepticism and fun can and should coexist. They turn sharp wit and sharper intellect on subjects such as religion, UFOs, medical quackery, and credulous and sensational reporting. At the same time, they dismantle the idea of skepticism as a dry, intellectual exercise at their many events and meetups, such as their Drinking Skeptically and Skeptics in the Pub events.

This July, they're combining both strengths by hosting a series of panels and other events at Convergence, the Twin Cities largest current science fiction and fantasy convention. Many of the Skepchicks will attend, and special guests include astronomer Pamela Gay and MN Atheists own PZ Myers.

In the studio, Stephanie Zvan will interview Skepchick Carrie Iwan about the Skepchick organization, Convergence and other ways to have fun while thinking skeptically.

"Atheists Talk" is produced by The Minnesota Atheists. Mike Haubrich, Director and Host.

Carries little weight, I know, but I can't recommend this highly enough. I spent exactly event around these fine young women (Sam wasn't there), and it was a blast. They're a Hell of a lot more fun and friendly than the likes of me, so don't let the source here color your perceptions too much.
