The Pseudoscientists
Rotating panel discussions on science and skepticism news and popular culture, with special guests, interviews, personal stories and general ridiculousness, all out of Melbourne, Australia. A podcast of the Young Australian Skeptics.

Sarah and Jack do the sexiest episode yet (probably) just in time for Easter, with news about lab-grown vaginas, the proteins that lock egg and sperm together, and the crazy things semen does to virgin female flies, while Jargonauts is all about the various types of tissue/organ grafts. Sexy.

Plus: neurotoxins, swallowing magnets, and one of the least-accurate sci-fi films ever, "The Core".

Liz, Joanna and Jack brave apocalyptically-bleak Melbourne weather to delve into news about the efficacy of homeopathy, why a recent Melbourne study into acupuncture might not be so great, and how scientists found water under the surface of one of Saturn's moons, while Jargonauts gets personally drugged-up with "pharmacogenomics".

Plus: the movie "Noah", helicopters, and confusing geocentrism.

Jack is joined by new co-host Joanna Ward to discuss scientific hoaxes online, the annoying trend of "viral" Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts that steal science images, and why parachutes will save you from falling out of a plane even though they haven't been tested "scientifically", while Jargonauts gets a rush from "endorphins". 

Plus: Joanna's heart research, Melbourne International Comedy Festival shows by friends of the show, and the dodgy science in the upcoming Scarlet Johansson movie "Lucy".
