This last SoT just passed, Ed and I interviewed someone rather than crap on about science news. It was a nice change, and it was very informative!

Direct link to mp3 file, around half an hour (can't remember and Ed didn't put up the time).

The interviewee was Dr. Rob Morrison, who's a bit of an Aussie science legend - he was one of the hosts of The Curiosity Show which introduced a whole generation of kids to science and, I think, was instrumental as a precursor to critical thinking for a lot of people. He's also the co-founder of Friends of Science in Medicine, a group which since its recent inception has been pushing hard to get "alternative medicine" courses out of Australian Universities, at least in their current incarnation, where they're being taught as viable alternatives along with orthodox medicince. We had a very interesting chat about these issues, and it's well worth a listen. I was worried it would become a polemic, but I thought, after the interview, that FSM are handling the issue very well.

(Oh my god. They have the same acronym as the Flying Spaghetti Monster. That is FREAKING BRILLIANT...)
