EP25 – Homeopathy, human conversation, and Nazi/Venus diplomatic relations [w/ Michael Marshall]

In this episode, we talk to Michael Marshall. Michael is the project director for the Good Thinking Society and the Vice President of the Merseyside Skeptics Society. He recently spoke in Sofia about the campaign against NHS homeopathy funding his team organized.

In this episode you’ll hear us discuss:

  • How can we promote rational thinking in the media by abiding to the narrative needs of journalists
  • What can skeptics do to make their events more inclusive?
  • What are the weirdest beliefs Michael has heard on his podcast “Be Reasonable”?

Listen to this talk about public policy, flat and hollow earth, and the Venusian ships Nazis used.

About our guest

Michael Marshall is the Project Director of the Good Thinking Society and the Vice President of the Merseyside Skeptics Society. He regularly speaks with proponents of pseudoscience for the Be Reasonable podcast. Since 2012, the Good Thinking Society has been challenging the acceptance of pseudoscience across the UK and has had numerous victories, including their campaign against NHS homeopathy funding; securing a review of the legality of charities that promote pseudoscience; putting the issue of homeopathic vets on the agenda of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons; highlighting university institutions who hire facilities to house quackery; publishing exposés of pseudoscience in the media and challenging false balance on issues of scientific consensus.

Michael came to Sofia for the event “Ratio presents: Fighting Medical Pseudoscience“.
