Welcome to Dorset Humanists

Dorset Humanists is a welcoming group for humanists, atheists and agnostics who seek to live ethical and fulfilling lives on the basis of reason and humanity. We meet in Bournemouth for informative and enjoyable presentations, debates and discussions on a wide range of subjects including ethics, science, religion, philosophy, politics, our environment and much more. We also organise regular social events.

A Selection of Podcasts

Humanism related podcasts

Some members of the Dorset Humanists Facebook Group compiled a list of their favourite podcasts and we are sharing their choices here. Each of these podcasts have a different style so there should be at least one or two in the list (and hopefully many more!) that you will enjoy.

People who use iTunes will be able to download these fairly easily. For those who don't use iTunes, these podcasts can be listened to through an internet browser or on a smart phone with a podcast app like Stitcher or DoggCatcher.

If you know of any good podcasts that you feel would be of interest to other humanists please add your suggestions in the comments.

Skeptoid

Description - A weekly science podcast dedicated to furthering knowledge by blasting away the widespread pseudosciences that infect popular culture, and replacing them with way cooler reality.

Each weekly episode focuses on a single phenomenon — an urban legend, a paranormal claim, alternative therapy, or something just plain stupid — that you've heard of, and that you probably believe in. Skeptoid attempts to expose the folly of belief in non-evidence based phenomena, and more importantly, explains the factual scientific reality.

From the sublime to the startling, no topic is sacred, politically incorrect though that may be.
