A Whale of a Tale
Longtime Skeptoid listeners have come to learn that every 50 or 100 episodes, I like to amuse myself by putting out a lavish musical, often featuring big-name composers and musicians behind the scenes. This time, however, I regret to inform you that the performance comes from myself -- who should not ever be allowed near a microphone or a musical instrument -- and a ragged bunch of drunken sailors I Shanghaied in their sleep.
We tell a lot of stories on Skeptoid, and with this being the 700th episode, it's a good time to reflect on the best. Some of our stories are true, some are merely legends; but all have managed to attract legions of true believers (if they hadn't, they wouldn't have been Skeptoid episodes). In this very special show, we're going to focus on a few of the classics.
Sharing stories is inherently a social activity, so today we're going to go aboard ship with some friends and swap the most Skeptoidiest of yarns sea shanty style. And it goes a little like this...
That's enough shantying for now — 700 weekly episodes down, and many more to come. Perhaps we'll get out the concertina and the steel drum again in another 700 weeks, as there are certainly more than enough great tales, both old and new. So stay tuned and keep listening, and I'll keep compiling the biggest whale-sized tales out there.
