Join the Boston Skeptics on a special night as we hang out with Dr. Rachael Dunlop, noted Australian scientist, blogger, and podcaster.

Dr. Rachie’s awesomeness can be heard on the Skeptic Zone podcast and read on her blog, The Sceptic’s Book of Pooh-pooh as well as on Twitter.

Dr. Rachie recently appeared on the skeptic track at DragonCon, and will be a guest at the Northeast Conference on Science and Skepticism (NECSS) September 11. We’re hoping that her talk for Boston Skeptics in the Pub, though, will contain at least 80% more bawdiness.

Great presentation! Thanks for arranging for Dr. Rachie to come and speak!

After thinking about Dr. Rachie’s presentation some, I’m wondering if the Boston Skeptics might publish open letters to deal with some of the local woo. E.g., reiki and other unproven alt-med offerings at local hospitals like BWH and Spaulding, homeopathy available at pharmacies like CVS, etc.?

That’s not a bad idea. I mean, that’s sort of the concept behind Jared’s “The Woo Around Us” series, but I suppose it couldn’t hurt to submit write-ups as letters to the editor at local newspapers.

Perhaps even see if Susan Wenick from WCVB 5 will bite?

Err…Wernick, rather.
