The Science Enthusiast Podcast!
Just the right amount of not-a-science-podcast! It's not the worst, but thank you for listening (and we're sorry?)!

Hosts: Natalie Newell (Skeptical Parenting) and Dan Broadbent (A Science Enthusiast)!

Follow the podcast on Youtube at http://bit.ly/SciEnthusiastPodcast!

Sponsor: iPhones and healthcare, because they’re pretty much the same thing. Right?

(You can also support the show at no cost to you by shopping here on Amazon!)

God of the week: Kalma (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kalma_(goddess))!

Interview: Today we are thrilled to be joined by Lydia Finch. Lydia is a former Jehovah’s Witness, who was disfellowshipped from the faith over twenty years ago. Lydia is skeptic and activist (and a friend!), and we’ve been looking forward to having this conversation with her for some time now.
