About Skeptic magazine
Skeptic magazine is published by the Skeptics Society, a non-profit scientific and educational organization that advocates for science literacy and probes controversial ideas and extraordinary claims. Our mission is to serve as an educational tool for those seeking clarification on those controversial claims.
Under the direction of author and Scientific American columnist Dr. Michael Shermer, the Society engages in scientific investigation, historical sleuthing, and journalistic research to investigate claims in the realms of the pseudoscience, fringe science, bad science, good science, the paranormal, and all points between.
At skeptic.com, you can check out our lectures & events, browse magazine tables of contents and read free educational articles, read eSkeptic, discuss topics in the Skeptic Forum, and order books and DVDs in Shop Skeptic.

Monstertalk — presented by Skeptic magazine
MonsterTalk is a free audio podcast that critically examines the science behind cryptozoological (and legendary) creatures, such as Bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster, or werewolves. Hosted by Blake Smith, Ben Radford, and Dr. Karen Stollznow, MonsterTalk interviews the scientists and investigators who shine a spotlight on the things that go bump in the night. For once (and unlike mystery-mongering television shows) a monster-themed program gives skepticism more than just a couple minutes of lip service!
