The Godless Spellchecker Podcast

The Godless Spellchecker Podcast is an award winning weekly sceptical show in a conversational, interview format hosted by Stephen Knight. We hear from leading public figures as well as people without a public profile that have equally valuable experiences and ideas to share. The goal is to amplify good ideas and scrutinise bad ones. I think we've all learned something here today.
