Robert Todd Caroll about the Skepdic.

I'm even wondering at this point why I haven't heard any interview of him in any skeptical podcast I'm listening too, ever. It's kind of strange, for someone writing a website like the "Skepdic"... ::)

I would like to hear more people from the other side. Deepak Chopra would be a good one, but get a top physicist on like Brian Cox at the same time to bury his nonsense.

You weren't listening.  Brian Cox was interviewed a couple of weeks ago by Rebecca... in a pantry.

Michael Specter is promoting his book "Denialism" pretty heavily.  He may be interested in coming on the show.

A creationist! Ken Ham, Andy Schlafly, Duane Gish, Eric Hovind, anyone who works at the DI, Behe, Ben Stein, heck even just a lay pastor who cares a lot about creationism.

Douglas Richard Hofstadter who is the author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning book "Gödel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid" (commonly GEB).

It´s a great book, and I am sure that he has loads wisdom to share!

What about Martin Gardner? I don't know why he isn't a bigger hero of the skeptical movement, he has certainly been a huge influence on my own skeptical and scientific development since I started reading his books as a teenager. I love him mostly for his recreational math books, but he also wrote Fads and Fallacies in the Name of Science, according to Wikipedia "perhaps the first modern book of scientific skepticism of pseudoscience."

I'd love to hear interviews with some of the journalists who have been writing terrific articles on the autism/anti-vax movement.

Specifically, Amy Wallace at Wired (who was viciously attacked by the people at Age of Autism). Also, Trine Tsouderos and Patricia Callahan, of the Chicago Tribune. They wrote a great series of articles in May, mainly centered around Mark & David Geier, and a local doctor who was promoting some of their dubious treatments, and they just published another series of articles in November, centered around dubious treatments for autism.

The articles by Wallace, Tsouderos, and Callahan are pretty much everything that proponents of science-based medicine could ask for, and I'm sure they'd make for great interviews (and also great TAM speakers...)

New here and catching up on previous podcasts, but I was particularly impressed with the interview with Susan Blackmore in April 2007. I would love to hear her interviewed again.
