Big Picture Science just released this episode, which contains some obvious bad faith arguments and deliberately tries to discredit the UAP disclosure movement. It’s worth noting who is actually speaking on the podcast. Mick West, who’s debunk has been debunked. A SETI scientist who also has put forth bad faith arguments.

Here’s a link for iPhone users and the podcast description:

UFOs are back. This time they’ve landed on Capitol Hill in the form of a public, congressional hearing. We watched the hearing with great interest, but felt dissatisfied when it came to evidence. Claims that the government has alien technology are obviously tantalizing. So tantalizing, in fact, that it’s easy to overlook logical fallacies in how these claims are presented. We identify a few of the missteps. But what would convince you that the government is aware of alien visitation? Is the word of an authority figure all we need to accept that “they’re here?” Guests: Benjamin Radford – Research fellow with the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry Nadia Drake – Science journalist and member of NASA’s UAP group James McGaha – Retired military pilot and astronomer he’s a longtime investigator of UFO reports and claims and he’s a scientific consultant to the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry *Mick West – A skeptical investigator who looks at claims of UFOs Featuring music by Dewey Dellay and Jun Miyake Big Picture Science is part of the Airwave Media
