What's the talk about?

What makes a good skeptically-themed comedy song? While it's clear that Blake Hutchings doesn't know the answer to this question, he has a damn good go at trying to figure it out in this talk. Structured around the story of his effort to write the perfect skeptical song - his tribute to JREF president DJ Grothe - he also gives a sort of 'Skepticism 101' along the way, delving into the world of logical fallacies, reasoning errors, and taking great care NOT to call Sally Morgan a fraudulent litigious witch (which he doesn't say, and has never said). Punctuated with songs including "Yahweh's Last Stand" and "Rudolph the Gullible Reindeer" this somewhat unusual SitP talk promises to be an interesting and different night at your local skeptic group.
