Answering Student Questions on Skeptoid

Some Skeptoid episodes are dedicated to questions sent in by students. Ask me anything you want to know about. I won't just give you an answer: I'll also try to explain the process for finding the right answer.

Questions should be about skeptical topics: science vs. pseudoscience, urban legends, consumer frauds, alternative medicine, etc. No politics, religion, value judgments, or mentioning an individual or company by name.

Be sure to search the site to make sure Skeptoid has not already covered it. Most questions I receive have already been answered!

To participate, just select the text in the box below and send it in an email to Record your question on your computer or smartphone (as good quality as you can, short and to the point please), and email them.

If you don't want to use your name, you don't have to. In your recorded question, give me as much of this information as you feel comfortable, but none of it is required: "I'm Joe Blow from the XYZ science club at ABC School in New York NY, age 16, and my question is...are ghosts real?" Please no sound effects or music or anything -- just your question in clear spoken English.
