Tonight on The Independents: "I'm Skeptical," With Michael Shermer, Katherine Mangu-Ward, Andy Levy, Michael Malice, and More!


Don't believe in yourself; don't deceive with belief; knowledge comes with death's release, ohhhh ohhhhhhh ohhhhh ohhhhhh….. |||

Friday episodes of The Independents (Fox Business Network, 9 p.m. ET, 6 p.m. PT, with re-airs three and five hours later) are organized around a theme, and tonight's is "I'm Skeptical" (pictured). It's all about modern-day (and occasionally historical) skepticism, and how it might be applied to such disparate topics as Ebola, voting, ISIS, global warming, organic foods, vaccines, and so on. Joining to discuss are:

* Michael Shermer, publisher of Skeptic magazine (read about him and stuff by him in the Reason archive).

* Beloved Reason Managing Editor Katherine Mangu-Ward (read her Reason archive here).

* Amateur historian and professional hair model Michael Malice (read his great 2013 Reason feature "My Week in North Korea").

* TV's Andy Levy, whose real name is apparently "Andrew."

It is a lively and entertaining news program that I recommend consuming audio-visually.
