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.

Jack is joined by returning guest Upulie Divisekera to freak out about electric bacteria and why they might be able to turn us into cyborgs, how an anti-GMO activist royally screwed up, and the essentiality of respiration.

Plus: Snowpiercer, Russian sex geckos, dead dinosaurs, and more brain pseudoscience from "Lucy".

Plus: throwing blood, barcoding with kids, and Jake Guy-lan-HAL on ice.
