The newest edition of the SETI radio show "Are We Alone" is up, and in the segment called Skeptic Check astronomer Seth Shostak and I poke fun at the latest silliness about Betelgeuse and the Mayan doomsday. The rest of the show is, as usual, really good and fun to listen to (all about ESP -- but you knew that already), so head over there and give it a download. But do it before December 21, 2012. Or wait until afterwards. It'll still be around, as will the Earth.
