Episode 220 – Presentation by Cara Santa Maria

This week, a dynamic presentation by media personality and science educator Cara Santa Maria.

On October 24th through 27th, 2013, the Center for Inquiry presented the CFI Summit, an international congress in the Pacific Northwest. This event explored such questions as: To what extent do skeptics and humanists have a common mission? Should examination of religious beliefs remain largely off limits for skeptics? Should secular humanists be as critical of fringe science claims, including alternative medicine, as they are of religious beliefs? And are there public policy issues on which skeptics and humanists can productively collaborate?

Cara Santa Maria hosted the Huffington Post web science series “Talk Nerdy to Me.” She now cohosts Hacking the Planet and The Truth about Twisters for The Weather Channel and is the newest host at the Young Turks Network.

She is introduced by Judith Walker, a member of the Center for Inquiry’s board of directors.
