Alan Sokal so he can speak about the effects of Post Modernism on Science, public education and the public understanding of Science.

Derren Brown for sure. Big skeptic and interesting man. Just take a look at his blog, loads of skeptical entries.

... and he can enlighten us on the state of string theory.

Post who you would like to hear the Panel interview on the podcast here!


Why did someone create a new thread when there was already one going on for a very long time on exactly the same topic?

I don't get it. It's just creating a new thread for the pleasure of creating a new thread... >:(

When you ask a question in your first sentence, and then come to a conclusion two lines later without waiting for an answer, it makes your original question look rhetorical.  Nevertheless, I will answer it.

I created this thread on the request of the Panel when we reorganized this top section of the forum in late August.  It is to encourage Panel participation in the board.  You can read the announcement about it here.

In other words, it's so that the Panel would have an easier time receiving and replying to board member suggestions.  They read this thread for sure.  They may or may not not read the other thread.

Hope this helps!

OK. You should have explained that in the other thread when you closed it. Just saying. It's not like if we hadn't propose lots of name in that threads over there.

But OK.

You're right; I probably should have.  But that thread went dormant almost immediately after the new setup was put in place, so I didn't really see any reason to at the time.

Could be difficult to do, but I propose http://www.stephenfry.com, awesomely clever and witty man and speaks so elegantly - would be amazing to get him with his long time friend and comedy partner Hugh Laurie - either / or, or both together, I am sure they would make for interesting interviewees - they did that show with Randi way back debunking some newspaper astrology nut-job.

how I do love Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie.
So I second that!

If anyone likes Douglas Adams, Stephen Fry is doing a version of his 'Last Chance to See' on BBC. It had my most favorite of all birds the Kakapo last week.
So green and silly...

Adam Carolla would be awesome if you could swing it.

He's an atheist and very pro-science.  He might not be as educational, but he would be very entertaining.

I would say that Thunderf00t of YouTube fame would make a great interview. His "Why do people laugh at creationists" series is one of my favorites.
