I am still listening to the Skeptoid podcast.
I was not sure this would be the case a couple of months ago, when news of Dunning's sentencing hit skepdom. Interestingly, there are a fair number of skeptical podcasts that I used to listen to like clockwork that I currently only take in from time to time. As far as I know, all of their hosts and producers are not convicted felons. Yet, Skeptoid, despite its founder Brian Dunning's serious legal problems, I still listen to on a weekly basis, and almost always within hours of its release.
A big part of the reason is nothing more than convenience. The episodes are still 10 to 15 minutes long, and one does not have to set aside a block of time to listen. I usually listen on the drive home from work every Tuesday when the new episodes are released. It'a s very opportune fit. Part of the reason is the episodes so far--whether a fill-in host, or presumably something pre-recorded by Dunning--still pack the same quick blurb of information on some woo topic, pseudoscience, or conspiracy. As always, Skeptoid is not the end all be all on a covered issue, but the show still produces a reasonable, useful and interesting 'World Book Encyclopedia' overview and jumping off point on a given subject.
Dunning is still a felon, and after reading everything I could after his sentencing, serving some deserved time. I do not condone his behavior or actions. Yet, the show despite Dunning's legal issues is still a nice package. There no other shows that I am aware of that does the same quick skeptical drive-by of information other than the 'podlet' portion at the start of Skepticality. Each of the podlets is too sub-specialized to achieve the same thing as Dunning produces. Dunning found a good niche, and he and his associates continue to fill that niche nicely.
I enjoy my Tuesday hit of skeptical goodness even if the Godfather of the show has done some highly dubious things in his past professional life. In the end, I appreciate that Skeptoid just works. When the show breaks, I'll stop listening.
