This is the audio recording of the 04/28 meet-up with James Randi. The topic of the discussion was about skeptical activism. We also talked a bit about Randi’s forthcoming book, A Magician in the Laboratory, and then we had a Q & A with the audience.
Note about the audio: Unfortunately, my digital audio recorder captured James Randi’s audio level at a much higher amount than the VU meter suggested. I didn’t realize his audio was clipping. Therefore Randi’s audio level sounds over-modulated and distorted. I did the best to smooth it out, but my recommendation would be to listen to this with your speakers turned down. In the meanwhile, I’ll see if I can get this in the hands of someone who can use the appropriate filters, EQ, and other effects to improve this conversation. And I’ll replace this file with a better one at that time.
The Ann Arbor Science & Skeptics are having a meet-up on Saturday, April 28th from 4:00 to 6:00pm at SRT Solutions. We’ll be located in the conference room. Our special guest will be James Randi!
