You need to interview this local hero from NZ.  I saw these on sale in Canada today and was astonished at the bold claims on the packaging.

I spoke with Brian Deer at some length at TAM this past weekend.

He has some fascinating stories about his take-down of Andrew Wakefield - would make a great interview!

Completely OT but is your screen name a Jerky Boys reference?

Ann Druyan. Carl Sagan's widow, and clearly passionate about continuing his legacy.

Overall, it seems like interviews have been decreasing in number over the years.

I'd suggest Eliezer Yudkowsky. Part smart, part crackpot. He is nowhere near being one of the "big guys" (like say Dawkins or Tyson) and it should therefore not be hard to make him agree to an interview.

RationalWiki has a more thorough (and not very flattering) entry on him.

Or about his meta-ethics (I know Steve disagrees with it).

I'd suggest you interview Dan Larhammar, professor in molecular cell biology at Uppsala University, and has been called "chief of the Swedish skeptics". He has been active in debunking creationism and alternative medicine.

Maria Konnikova, a great skeptic and science communicator. http://www.mariakonnikova.com

Cathy O'Neil, blogs as the "math babe". Has a forthcoming book called "Weapons of Math Destruction". She argues that we need to approach mathematical models and algorithms with a much more skeptical eye. http://boingboing.net/2016/01/06/weapons-of-math-destruction-h.html

I saw this article on Fox News about Mariah Walton, who was born with a heart condition that could have been treated if here parents hadn’t been religious nuts.  Now she’s grown up and wants to raise awareness of the balance between freedom of religion and the rights of children to be healthy.

I don’t know if she wants to be in the spotlight personally, but I would love to hear an interview with her on the SGU.
