What was your path to skepticism?

I've always been a little skeptical, but a big reason I became interested was that I discovered that my best friend was undergoing chelation & ozone therapy. My research into these topics helped me discover the community of skeptics out there.

What is the best day and time for you to meet?

Evenings, any day.

Are you alarmed by the state of scientific knowledge among the general population in America?

Absolutely, but beyond that, I'm alarmed at the way otherwise intelligent people will accept the b.s. going on around them with a "what's the harm?" attitude.

Are there issues or topics you'd especially like to discuss?

Organics, GMOs, food additives and other food-related topics are something I don't see covered much in the skeptical blogs and podcasts I'm current on, and they're subjects that I think are plagued with a lot of myths.

Introduction

I'm a musician who just moved to Chicago. I find it's hard in general to find people who think critically about the world, and I look forward to meeting some like-minded people.
