Skeptic's Guide to the Universe is being sued
I know there are a few others around here who listen to the podcast. Not sure how many folks will be interested, but I think this is a worthy cause.

I really trust these folks to tackle subjects with objectivity. They base opinions on evidence and facts exclusively, and do a great job of debunking false claims made in the area of pseudoscience, conspiracy theories, and health/medicine.

The link has a quick summary of why they are being sued, and they are asking for donations to help cover legal expenses.

I hope that the world turns, and things get better. But what I hope most of all is that you understand what I mean when I tell you that, even though I do not know you, and even though I may never meet you, laugh with you, cry with you, or kiss you, I love you. With all my heart, I love you. - V for Vendetta

Sounds like a good cause. Might look and see how much moolah I have after I hear some of their podcasts. Not that I wouldn't donate if I wasn't entertained but it's a plus. Also listening first because I'm curious. I like sciencey stuff though my brain doesn't allow me to process and remember details about it. If anything else, I've found how I'm going to kill a few hours...

Not familiar with this but sounds like a great cause and if I had a dollar to my name I would surely donate.

It is really interesting. I listen to it a lot while I'm at work, I can tune out the stuff that's over my head, and the stuff I understand is REALLY informative. They are very thorough, and cover a huge range of topics. They have fun segments too that you can kind of play along with. Happy listening! Thumbsup
