Episodes 100: The Hundredth Episode Spectacular!


Ep’sode 100
Thanks for listening so far,
There’s lots more to come!

Two years six months after launch, I bring you the hundredth episode of the Exposing PseudoAstronomy podcast. There are two “hours” to this episode, two separate files. Because I use so many clips from various paranormal broadcasts, this entire 100th episode(s) is an homage to those paranormal shows. I play the credulous host, have guests on, and some “open line” callers. I also included bumper music and commercials.

I hope that it turned out well — it’s one of those ideas that looks and sounds great in your head, but you’re not sure how well it turned out or if other people will like it.

This episode couldn’t have happened without all the people who contributed their time and voices, so I want to thank: Karl, Mike, Expat, Parrot, Dave, Warwick, Tim, and Justin. Also a very big “Thank You” to the folks at The Reality Check – Adam, Elan, Darren, and Pat – for sending me a promo to use, Sharron Hill of Doubtful News and Tim Farley of The Virtual Skeptics for their last-minute scrambling to also send me promos. And to Pamela Gay for sending me a promo literally just after I finished editing everything, but hadn’t done a final listen-through so could still fit it in. I will note that I did contact several other skeptical groups and outlets for promos, but for various reasons they were not able to get me an audio file to use in time.

So … with all that said, sit back, relax, and hopefully you enjoy the episodes that is and are, Episode 100. Feedback, as always, is appreciated (constructive feedback).

  1. Congratulations on reaching the this milestone. The episode was great, all my coworkers thought I was losing my mind today because I was laughing so hard. Keep up the great work, can’t wait for episode 200.

    • Thank you. 200 seems a long way off right now.

  2. Excellent, Stuart! You were very wise to hire the astute Karl to be your Conspiracy Advisor! It was refreshing to get a podcast fraught with fact and common sense instead of that usual censored NASA claptrap. (What a wasteful organization! Did you know they have 26,000 airbrush artists on the payroll?)

    I thought the interviews and the calls were brilliant (although some of them had rather strange accents. Vaguely reminicent of what we heard during an extended stay in a land called Britain and another, shorter, visit to a really mysterious realm which was so unusual I dubbed it ‘The Land of Oz.’ But all of that was long ago and far away).

    Seriously, congratulations to you and all for a great job. Looking forward to the 200th!

  3. great episode! At first, i thought you had spliced together several different C2C episodes and was pretending to interview them, sort of like Weird Al, lol.

  4. LOLz! A delightful parody of Coast-to-Coast AM, and it was great to hear the dear deadpan Karl Mamer. Congrats on your 100th episodicy thingy, Astro Stu!

  5. The segment with Karl was wonderfully stupid! Good job.

    • I’ll take that as a compliment.

  6. This is a fine end very entertaining parody indeed! So many points (revelations? Or should that be ‘elevations’?) that had me grinning ear to ear! Better be careful next time you go out though, if they catch you they’ll put you in a Faraday cage and throw away the phosfor-bronze door handle with all that radiation of yours!
    Seriously, a lot more people should expose this stuff for what it is before too many others let it seep into their thinking. Great work.
