SGEM Xtra: The Reality Check

SGEM Xtra: The Reality Check

I had the pleasure of being a guest panelist on The Reality Check (TRC) podcast this week. TRC is “Canada’s weekly podcast that explores a wide range of controversies and curiosities using science and critical thinking.”

They invited me on to discuss some of my favourite things like evidence based medicine, knowledge translation and FOAMed. Listen to the show by clicking on this link to the MP3 file or subscribing to TRC on iTunes.

We had lots of fun discussing how social media can cut the knowledge translation window down from over ten years to less than one year. I also got to participate in a “riveting” trivia game called Name That about the Nobel Prizes.

  • “The Reality Check podcast was created by the Ottawa Skeptics, an organization which aims to promote the use of the scientific method, critical thinking and rational thought in our community. Ottawa Skeptics supports high standards of scientific integrity, academic freedom and the free exchange of ideas. We have one bias: Science is the best method for determining objective truth.”

Check out this science podcast on skeptical and critical thinking. You can follow the TRC on Twitter , subscribe on iTunes and like on Facebook.


Remember to be skeptical of anything you learn, even if you heard it on the Skeptics’ Guide to Emergency Medicine.
