Hear the Skeptics

If you were unable to make the Skeptics conference last weekend (and I only made the first section myself), you can now hear some of the talks, recorded by the Science Media Centre.

Is Science Just Mysticism in a Lab Coat?
Bernard Beckett

The Slippery Slope of Conspiracy Theories
Matthew Dentith (I presume this is NZDWFC's Matthew Dentith!)

Strange Occurrences: our approach to paranormal investigation
James Gilberd

Undercover for Cancer
Loretta Marron

Circumcision: a cure looking for a disease
Hugh Young

Unwarranted skepticism; disbelief in a finite world
John Robinson

Is Economics a Science or a Religion?
Brian Easton

It is most definitely the very same Matthew Dentith.

To be fair, how many "Matthew Dentith"s can there be? ;)

I wasn't entirely sure it was him until I listened to the audio. No two people will have that same extraordinary collection of middle names (as mentioned at the beginning of his talk).
