This week's quote: "I say you cannot administer a wicked law impartially. You can only punish, only destroy. And I warn you: a wicked law, like cholera, destroys everyone that it touches--its upholders as well as its defiers." --Inherit the Wind

I have a question, I have iTunes and am subscribed to a number of good podcasts; what's the URL I can put in to subscribe to this podcast on iTunes?

If you want to add it in directly to iTunes, just use: http://feeds.feedburner.com/bogosity-podcast

If you want to find it in the iTunes catalog, you'll have to give me a bit of time on that.

Awesome! Thanks. :)

That's OK, I've never even heard of iTunes catalog.

The bit about libel in the UK, so you say in the US that the statement being true is a defense against a libel lawsuit?

So how come Penn and Teller aren't allowed to call people liars, cheats or other such words even when it's blatantly true?
I recently heard that the word heretic is derived from the greek work heriticos which means "able to choose"
The more you know...

Because even though you can use truth as a defense, you can still end up spending a lot of money defending yourself against bogus lawsuits. It's a major problem with our tort system: it can be used to harass when there is no legitimate claim.

Love the podcast. I posted it on my facebook and encouraged people who like it to repost it on theirs, so as to spread the word a bit.

If there's anything I could do to help, lemme know. Afraid I don't have a very good mic on hand at the moment, though. Only one I have is the one built into my laptop, and the last time I used it for anything was when I spent about half a day trying to make my voice sound like a Dalek's. I failed miserably, btw. =P

This is really exciting, IMO. I love the idea of getting little audio bits of bogosity every week. Now if only I could figure out how to subscribe to it from Zune...

Well, it's not even up 24 hours and I exceeded my bandwidth! I had to upgrade! I'm guessing that's a good sign. (Although some PayPal donations to cover it wouldn't be unwelcome...)
