Geekspeak Season 15, Episode 3: The Lemony, Limeiny Taste of Science

Today is OMg day—the publication day for Fake Science 101.
Celebrate by buying the book, burning it, inhaling the smoke, and then reading a second copy on a totally natural fake science high.
This week on Geekspeak, we welcome Phil Edwards, noted practitioner of fake science at the Fake Science blog, on to chat about his new book, Fake Science 101. You may be noticing a pattern here.

But that's not all, dear listener! We also talk about the legal ramifications of cell phone tracking - should it be protected by the Fourth Amendment? We also then sort of talk about whether Facebook Likes should be considered protected speech but really instead we decide to talk about David Cronenberg's mess-talking about superhero films.

So really, it's a pretty full and hearty show, suitable for any meal in the day. Download it, you might (not) learn something.
