Meet the Author

Brian Dunning is a science journalist in Southern California. His free weekly podcast Skeptoid: Critical Analysis of Pop Phenomena began in 2006, taking the underdog side of science and rationality amid the overwhelming majority of noise in the media promoting pseudoscience, alternative anything, and unconditional acceptance of the paranormal. The choice between pseudoscience and science is the choice between the developmental stagnation of the Dark Ages, and progress.

Brian takes every opportunity to speak on critical thinking issues at colleges and local groups. In his spare time he enjoys Jeeping in the desert with his family and playing beach volleyball (badly).
