Gene and Randall discuss paranormal matters and other subjects with long-time skeptical writer/researcher Benjamin Radford, author of “Big-If True: Adventures in Oddity,” a compendium of several dozen columns from Skeptical Inquirer science magazine, where he is a deputy editor. The topics he explores include urban legends, the paranormal, the tale of an alleged walking tree, fake cures, critical thinking, media literacy and even whether a certain well-known online dating service uses scientific methods to screen it’s applicants. The discussion also includes the possible efficacy of nutritional supplements and even Gene’s personal experiences with one of these alleged remedies. Ben is also a member of the American Folklore Society, the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, and the American College of Forensic Examiners International.
