In podcast-years, Rationally Speaking is ancient. The show was born in 2010, as a joint project co-hosted by myself and professor of philosophy Massimo Pigliucci. We were sponsored by the New York City Skeptics and produced by Benny Pollak in his studio in Greenwich Village.
In 2015, Massimo left the podcast to focus on other projects, and I’ve been the solo host ever since. I record and produce all the episodes myself, but receive invaluable help from my audio consultant Brent Silk, and my web consultant Jonathan Nelson. The Rationally Speaking theme music is by the excellent independent band Miracles of Modern Science.
When I’m not podcasting, I spend my time writing, speaking and sometimes consulting. You can learn more at my personal site, or pick up a copy of my book, The Scout Mindset (2021).
