  10. Have always thought DJ on Point of Inquiry podcasts was an excellent interviewer and presenter. Looking forward to hearing him on this one as well.

  11. Finally smile

    Really looking forward to where this show is going, D.J. is one of my favourite interviewers and JREF as an organization is a true “candle in the dark”.

    Thanks, much respect, and all the best.

  12. I am happy to hear that James is on the mend.  May he live for many more years to contribute to the JREF and to society.  Good job, DJ…

  15. Dear DJ.,

    Please balance the audio of these programs so that phone interviews are the same volume as the studio mic.

    POI often had terrible audio balance. So much so, that I had to skip it.

    All the best with the new show.

  16. Great to hear of the new podcast. Would like to listen to it too, but I seem to be unable to download the mp3 - clicking the “download” link starts the media player plugin, and when I right click on the link, the “Download source” option does not appear. Thus, I cannot download the podcast. A regular text download link would be appreciated.

  17. Just before listening to the inaugural podcast, I listened to On The Media (http://www.onthemedia.org/transcripts/2010/01/29/04) where the host was interviewing The Washington Post’s Baghdad Bureau Chief Ernesto Londono who said that just before the blasts at the Sheraton, Babylon and Hamra hotels:

    “I was actually interviewing the government spokesman about these controversial hand-held devices that the Iraqis use to try to detect explosives. They’ve come under scrutiny because many people, including the U.S. military, thinks they don’t work.”

    Bingo!  It must be the same “devices” that you and Randi were discussing.  Perhaps you or Randi someone should reach out to Ernesto?

    Lots of luck with this venture!

  18. Randi & DJ—my two favorite skeptics! Wonderful!

  19. Excited about the new podcast, also glad to see Point of Inquiry will continue.  Thanks, and keep up the great work, DJ and Randi!

  20. I’m on PC, Windows and IE, no problems at all with the DL. Not earlier, not in between, not now. Left click on the DL button and everything works fine.

    “Please balance the audio of these programs so that phone interviews are the same volume as the studio mic.”

    I agree, FGR should be the top of the cream when it comes to Skeptical podcasts. The overall audio quality of the first show is just not good enough.

  21. I am overjoyed to see another quality skeptic website going forward on the internet. I’ve been reading James Randi’s book flim flam and I know this website is going to be a great hit with all the skeptics. Hopefully some easily pursuaded people will learn from this sight. Thank you Mr. Grothe and Mr. Randi for the opportunity to get onboard with forgoodreason
