Here are a couple more things to check out:

http://www.chirobase.org/ which is run by Stephen Barrett of Quackwatch who is in the above episode,

And QuackCast, a podcast by a doctor that gets rather technical, but not overly so:

Luckily, the benefits of a Happy Ending are real:)
"All I ask of you is one thing: please don't be cynical. I hate cynicism -- it's my least favorite quality and it doesn't lead anywhere.
Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get. But if you work really hard and you're kind, amazing things will happen."

I like that the guys are pretty equal opportunity attackers; going after liberal and conservative causes alike.  And although they can be brash, they also openly admit when they're wrong, or don't have a soapbox to stand on, or just don't know.  They have a humility I admire.

You don't agree with P&T on everything then.

Incidentally this is one where I mostly disagree with them too.  :)

As do I... BUT the episode made me really think about my position, and noodle out for myself just why I think about it the way I do. I wrote a multi-page letter to PennRadio after it aired.

That episode definitely made me rethink some things and I had to agree with them that if just one innocent person is put to death wrongly, then the whole punishment really should be eliminated. Part of that may come from my totally irrational fear of being wrongly accused of something (I thank Kafka and Hitchcock for that).
