Occam's Barbershop is a weekly program on DCUfm, which is podcasted here. New episodes are broadcast live from the heart of the DCU campus online at www.DCUfm.com on Thursdays from 2PM until 3PM.
This week on the show, the pope takes over! We have a multitude of tom-popery, including his take on evolution, what the previous pontiff's blood is currently doing and the controversy behind John Paul's impending sainthood. We have a story explaining what happens when you have a whole load of children belong to anti-vax people stuck in school together, a story about how science may have found one bizzare reason for why people believe in bizarre conspiracy theories and how Glee is drawing fire for pro-gay episodes and a whole load of chatter. Also, the usual quiz.
It should be noted that we REALLY want YOU to take part in the weekly quiz! If you feel like giving it a shot, send us an email at TheBarbers@OccamsBarbershop.com and we will vet you for inclusion in the show! We are attempting to get our hands on a cool prize. One thing to be noted is that you will have to be free between the times of 2PM and 3PM on Thursday when we record the show. We look forward to hearing from you!
