Yeah I'd say best guest was geo.
Best skeptic goes to the Australian skeptics overall for power bands the Australian vaccination work and organizing a TAM Australia and hosting the SGU.

Best quote:
(ep. #250) Jay: (about Stephen Hawking) Didn't he send his DNA into space?
Rebecca:  What? Do you think he jerked off into a cup or something?
Steve:  Talk about panspermia!

Second this! :D

In episode 240, Rebecca joked about how she would start her own podcast dedicated to Jay expressing disbelief. The more I thought about it, the more I wanted to know what it would sound like. So I went through all of the "Science or Fiction" segments from 2010, cut out Jay's expressions of disbelief, and put them all together.

With the exception of the first clip and the last clip, these are all in chronological order.

There are a few things that aren't technically disbelief, but I thought they were funny.

Well done. Kudos to you.  :laugh: I hope they play this on the wrap up show.

This. Is.  Awesome! Needs a music bed of "Unbelievable," though.  :D

Also I like your avatar, or rather where it came from.

@werecow: I was pleasantly surprised by that movie. It has quickly become one of my favorites.

I'm glad you enjoyed it, Jay.  :)

I replied to your PM, thr4sh3ld. I don't mind at all if you share it. Hopefully it will prompt some people to check out the SGU. Btw, the excellent version that was used in the podcast, with musical accompaniment, was made by someone else independently of mine. Neither of us knew the other was making it. You probably already knew that, but I just wanted to make it clear.
