The Bent Spoon

So last Friday the first issue of The Bent Spoon was released.  I have received a lot of positive feedback and comments (which I love).  If anyone would like to subscribe to receive a free copy every month in their inbox, just send an email to thebentspoon@live.com and in the subject line type “subscribe” and you will be added to the list. 

The Bent Spoon is a skeptical magazine for the true believer.  Within its pages you will find Q&A between those with opposing viewpoints, interviews with leading investigators and thinkers, as well as articles which will not only provide in-depth analysis, but also be critical of both believers and skeptics alike.  Along with reviews, comic strips, and other lighter fare, The Bent Spoon hopes to foster an attitude of outreach, forming a middle ground where believers and skeptics can come together and have a conversation about the issues and questions we’ve all given thought to.

Please tell your friends and leave feedback, we would love to hear from you!

Interview with Ben Radford – Solving the Mystery of the Chupacabra

You can’t seem to turn on the television anymore without seeing a paranormal themed show propping up average joe’s as science-minded investigators.  Shows like Ghost Hunters and Ghost Adventures, along with Destination Truth and Fact or Faked have created a dozen seasons between them of doing just that.  The problem is, the cast members frequently use unsound scientific techniques because they generally just do not have a background in science or investigation.  And to top it off, they never actually seem to solve any mysteries.  Ben Radford, however, does.  With a degree in Psychology, and applying legitimate scientific methodologies, Radford has investigated and solved the 1997 Pokemon panic of Japan, the Santa Fe Courthouse Ghost, and The White Witch of Rose Hall, among others.  He is the managing editor of Skeptical Inquirer magazine and the “Bad Science” columnist at Livescience.com  He has published several books, most recently “Scientific Paranormal Investigation,” and “Tracking the Chupacabra: The Vampire Beast in Fact, Fiction, and Folklore” which offers a detailed history of the creature and claims to put the mystery to rest once and for all.  To learn more about Ben, check him out online at WWW.RADFORDBOOKS.COM
