Hi, Callum from Aberdeen in Scotland. I've been listening to the SGU for about 2 years now. I got into it by first listening to the Dr Karl Science Phone In on BBC Radio 5 Live. The presenter mentioned a podcast called Skeptoid and I went and gave it a listen. It was then I realised there was this whole community dedicated to skeptism and it really fascinated me. I've always been into science since I was a kid but I was also really into stuff about supernatural and unexplained phenomena. Even at the hight of this fascination it was more of a "wouldn't it be awesome if these UFO sightings or ghost sightings were/are real" idea rather then being a "true believer".
From listening to podcasts like Skeptoid and SGU I've learnt a lot about critical analysis/thinking and just the sort of questions you should ask and how to examine the evidence better. I thought joining this forum and reading and hopefully trying to contribute would further help me strength these skills.
