Going rogue. Skeptically, that is.

One of the very few podcasts I listen to is Skeptics' Guide to the Universe. Steve, Jay, Bob, Evan, and Rebecca speak out about topics scientific and skeptical every week, and for some reason (I suspect blackmail) Steve invited me to be a Guest Rogue on this week's episode. I'll note it's the 287th episode, and OJ287 is the name of a prototypical active galaxy located 3.5 billion light years away! COINCIDENCE?

Yes, in fact, it is. Still, we did talk about active galaxies (COINCIDENCE?*) and other fun things, and while I won't give anything away, I'll add that my streak for Science or Fiction remains unbroken. Oh: it's entirely possible we ran a little long, which is of course all Rebecca's fault.

You can grab the show on the episode page, and I suggest you subscribe to the podcast using RSS, too. If you want to discuss the episode, join other fans on the SGU forum where you can talk about how awesome I was, too.

And yes, I was told it was Pauli, not Pauling. I was 70% correct, at least.

* Again, yes. Please pay attention.
