I loves me some Skepchicks, especially when they let me blather in a podcast with them!
The podcast is (almost) safe for work, with some words bleeped out using a scream I recorded for them in a previous podcast (though they missed at least one from Sam, so fairly warned be ye, says I). Here's the MP3 link, and you can subscribe to them here. I'll add that while we spend at least four minutes covering serious topics, we also spend a lot of time teasing each other. Every time I do an interview with serious people I joke around, and when I do interviews with friends it's always just inside jokes, puns, and teasing. So if you don't get all the jokes, that's OK. I didn't either. But the part about My Close Personal Friend Adam Savage 29 minutes in is pretty funny.
