Once again an archeological expedition has claimed evidence of Noah’s Ark on a snowy mountain, and once again, the evidence doesn’t hold water.  So where is this famous couples-only cruise liner?  Skeptical Sunday considers the logistical problems of putting samples of all animal life on 300 cubits of gopherwood, and why all attempts to find wreckage of this floating zoo have foundered.  Also, count your lucky stars… is there any truth to astrology?  Plus, Phil Plait on communicating with the dead (a one-way conversation), and our Hollywood Skeptic is lost at sea with a lot of animal company.  It’s Skeptical Sunday… but don’t take our word for it. 

Guests:

  • Phil Plait
  • Jim Underdown
  • Andy Fraknoi
  • Ed Tarvyd – Professor of Marine Biology and Zoology at Santa Monica College
  • Ken Feder – Anthropologist at Central Connecticut State University and the author of “Frauds, Myths and Mysteries”
