Skepticule Podcast 71 - Interview with Mark Edward; Psychic Buster

We have another great interview from QED Con 2014. Mark Edward, Mentalist and Psychic Buster talks to us about Fake Psychics, their methods, preying on the gullible and the vulnerable and what we can do to stop these grief vampires.

Anonymous Steve's contribution discusses the BBC's uncritical documentary on how starlings use aromatherapy. Are the BBC presenting unscientific modalities as real science? 

Johno Pearce's contribution is a counter-response to our discussion on the ethics of vegetarianism.
