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.
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?
The amount of dedication that everyone involved has with keeping the station going. It’s like a cuddly cult of audio alternativeness.
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.
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.
I study graphic design (badly), produce podcasts (occasionally), write about strange beliefs (when not travelling) and can dance (a little).
