Pluto is no longer a planet? Damn!, I just got my astrology chart done and my rising sign was in Pluto, will this effect my love life? It's always something.
  Regarding the balance of humour in the show. I would hope that the rogues continue to say whatever, whenever and however they want. Isn't this what makes podcasting different then commercial television and radio?  I enjoy reading the forums. Either some of these people are so smart, or I got ADD because I have a difficult time following some of the postings. Not a criticism, I should be pushed. I check on all the links that people put up and have been learning a great deal. I appreciate what EVERYBODY is doing!  The podcast itself is presented in a down to Earth (is that still a planet?), manner so that complicated subjects can be better understood by the average person. My arguments with people have improved as I have a deeper appreciation and knowledge of logical fallicies. If there was less humor or an absence of sexy banter ("Monkey hot is that! haha)..
I probably would not be such a fan. I am not looking for crude banality, we have Howard Stern on satellite for that...The guests are terrific, and although I have been on for a short time, I have already listened AND paid attention to more lectures than my entire four years of high school.
Viva la Skeptics!

It's about Friggin time Pluto has no buisness being a planet in the first place.  :wink:

I was laughing a lot earlier today when I found that article linked to above. Anyway the IAU is being sued over the declassification of Pluto's classic planet classification.

Skepchick, I think it's time for a test of your claims: has a wide variety of reals and fakes. I got 8/10 three times, though with varying scores.
