This might be more appropriate for the Suggestions section, but I would like to see them broaden their topics a bit. Jenny Mccarthy's an idiot, we get it! But, how about an entire episode on global warming? Or, some of the less-obvious skeptic topics? I love the show, but I would like to see them expand their topic range, a bit.
i think they are; the last ep i listened to had a guest that wasn't exclusively talking about skepticism, which was refreshing. there have been a couple in recent memory that have included working scientists talking about their fields, which i think is great. i don't necessarily think that the SGU should move over to this kind of interview, but i would encourage the rogues to keep this kind of mixing-it-up going.
Well, I'm fine w/ them sticking with 'skeptic' topics. (I mean, it is a skeptic podcast.) I just want to see them go into topics that (a) aren't 100% clearly 'woo'; and (b) haven't been discussed over, and over, and over again.
For instance, chiropractics are quacks. End of story. I think every SGU listener understands that. We're all pretty confident that the UFO-story of the week is b.s. We all understand that the research shows no link between vaccines and autism. And, it's ok for them to mention these issues from time to time, but I don't think they've gone two episodes without going into at least 1 of these topics.
I'd like to see them expand their reach into issues where the conclusion may not be so clear cut. I read an article a few months back questioning the validity of shaken-baby syndrome. There's lots of talk out there about whether the New Deal worked. And, there are even some posters in the SGU forum who believe that ESP research has some validity. I'd love to see them go into these issues. And, heck, how about a 9/11 episode? That should get us a steady stream of forum trolls:)
