The Dumbasses Guide to Knowledge

As a few of you might know, I am a skeptic. It is not that I don’t believe in things like aliens, ghosts, mind powers and all the rest, it is just that I need some very solid evidence before I consider such things.

To add to my rotation of regularly listened to podcast’s in The Dumbasses Guide to Knowledge.  Hosted by Dumbass (yes, that is what he calls himself), the podcast usually focuses on areas that deserve a critical look and with a wonderful sense of humor. He also reads email and comments and responded to each one. Many time he ends up explaining to the writer on how he or she has completely missed the point of what they are complaining about. I must say, Dumbass is much more polite than I could never be.

The shows, and there are only 12 of them so far, vary in length, from 25 minutes to over an hour. The sound quality is very good and he seems to be experimenting with sound effects and music. I suppose the only criticism I can offer is that there are times I thing the show could use a co-host. Maybe that is just me because I am use to the interplay between hosts.

I like the show, but I love science and skeptic podcasts. If you are the same, give it a listen, if for anything, to hear the weird comments he gets from true believers who refuse to accept the truth.
