On Air : Listen

Kylie is a former student of paranormal beliefs and former teacher of Philosophy, who podcasts at the Token Skeptic. She writes for the Skeptical Inquirer and Patheos websites, mostly about atheism, secularism and kitten videos.

How did you become involved in the station?

Firstly by volunteering as a newsreader while studying radio; graduated to producer, contributed a few interviews and now learning my way through the occasional on-air appearance. What does this button do?

If stuck on Mars, what five albums could you not go without?

  • Regina Spektor – Begin To Hope
  • David Bowie – Black Tie/White Noise
  • Seatbelts – Earth Girls Are Easy
  • Thomas Dolby – The Golden Age of Radio
  • Abbe May – Kiss My Apocalypse

What is the best thing about being involved in the station?

The amount of dedication that everyone involved has with keeping the station going. It’s like a cuddly cult of audio alternativeness.

What is the strangest thing that has happened to you at RTRFM?

Having the Minister of the Opposition suddenly appear on the other end of a phone line ready to be interviewed, when I was expecting someone else. They didn’t seem to catch on though.

If you could present a show other than your own, which would it be and why?

I couldn’t decide, mostly because it wouldn’t take long for the regular listeners to realise I was making up things about some of the music to fill in what I didn’t know. Every band is kind to animals, are inspired by Tom Waits and first met at a youth hostel in Auckland. Trust me.

What do you do in real life?

I study graphic design (badly), produce podcasts (occasionally), write about strange beliefs (when not travelling) and can dance (a little).
