Episode 102: Q&A and D at the Launceston Skeptics in the Pub
A Q&A and discussion happened after I gave my presentation at the Launceston Skeptics in the Pub (Episode 99). Listen in as we talk about the goals of skepticism, what other kinds of astronomy topics there are, and about real astronomy observations.

Episode 101: The Chualar Barley Field Crop Circle and Reporting on it by Linda Moulton Howe
A mysterious crop circle appeared during the night of December 27-28, 2013, in Chualar, California. Security guards quickly came to guard the circle, and then it was mysteriously plowed under just a few days later. Crop circle researchers point to numerous lines of evidence that this was made by aliens, but it was later revealed to be a publicity stunt by NVIDIA. Or was it?
Puzzler: How could you tell if something was done by extraterrestrials?
Episode 100: The Hundredth Episode Spectacular!
For the hundredth episode of the Exposing PseudoAstronomy podcast, I pay homage to paranormal radio programs and play the credulous host with two guests and several callers. The show is complete with commercials and bumper music and spans two nearly hour-long segments.
Episode 99: The Saga of the Lunar Ziggurat
In July of 2012, I did an analysis of a photo purported to show a genuine ziggurat (a step pyramid) on the Moon. I showed that it was more likely to be a hoax than not. What ensued grew to more than I expected, with name-calling, mud-slinging, various side-claims, and other things that I relate in this live talk I gave twice while in Australia.

Special Video (#01): Richard C. Hoagland and the Ziggurat on the Moon
Richard C. Hoagland is at it again; this time, I take you on a short journey exploring Hoagland's claim that there is a ziggurat on the Moon. In this video exposé, I graphically show why this is a hoax, how this is a hoax, and conclude that Hoagland is an incompetent investigator (or lying that he did any investigation).
