To all our friends,

As you probably have noticed, there’s been no activity on this page for over 6 months. In light of that, CORICast will now be a very pleasant memory. You’ll still be able to find our most recent episodes on iTunes, and this website will remain up, along with all our published episodes for an undetermined period of time, should you wish to download them.

It’s time to officially shut this down. Again, we thank you very much for listening to us. We had loads of fun, and we hope you did too.

Please direct any questions to

All the best,

Dear Listeners,

You may or may not have heard by now that CORICast has reached a bit of a crossroads. We’re deciding at this point if the podcast should take a new direction, or just wander off into the sunset. That’s where you come in.

  • Do you have audio production skills?
  • Do you have an interest in discussing critical thinking and science related topics?
  • Do you have about 2 – 3 hours every other week for a really fun project?
  • Do you have people skills?  (Dammit!)

If so, then CORICast needs YOU. We’re looking for people interested in participating in CORICast as hosts, audio editing, web hosting, marketing… You name it, we need it. If you’re interested, please email us at and let’s talk!


Greetings!  Here’s your CORICast for April 28 2011!

Mark reviews Dr. Steven Novella’s segment on the Dr. Oz show, Chad finds out that it isn’t just unicorns pooping rainbows, and David spends a little time in the salt mines.

Thanks for listening.

Greetings, all! Here’s your CORICast for April 14, 2011:

David reviews yet another smoking gun from the Roswell coverup, and finds a distinct lack of smoke. Chad finds a preserve in Vietnam designed to protect the rare, but real, Asian Unicorn. Mark is currently embroiled in someone else’s legal woes, and was unavailable for the podcast. All part of a typical day in CORICast, I suppose. Oh, and are you coming to Ohio Skepticamp?

Behold: Space Unicorn!

Thanks for listening. Enjoy!

Hello, faithful listeners! Here’s your CORICast for Thursday, March 31 2011!

Mark does a bit of a Spring Cleaning for the Skeptic Mind with Wikipedia’s list of Common Misconceptions. David answers the question, “What do you get when you cross Harry Potter and Backdraft?” An electric wand that can put out fires.

Chad is recovering from a touch of illness, and we hope he gets better soon. Sasquatch misses him.


Greetings folks. We apologize for the recent delays in posting. The file sharing service we use to transfer everything around has been acting up. We’re looking for alternatives. :-) That said, here’s the scare-fest that is CORICast for March 17, 2011.

Never one to shirk his official duties as CORICast’s Head Zombie Ranger, Chad provides us with some real life zombies to creep everyone out. As if you weren’t scared enough yet, Mark points out some resource shortages that are sure to grab your attention. And if the zombie apocalypse doesn’t get you, David points out that the robot uprising is just around a tight corner.

Vigilance! (And really cool science…)

Greetings, all! Please enjoy your latest episode of CORICast, recorded March 3rd, 2011.

We decided, due to awesomeness, to preempt the entire show with our interview for this week: Dr. Greg Mack, Professor of Astrophysics from Ohio Wesleyan University! Greg joins us to talk a bit about the sciences of astronomy and physics, including topics like black holes, string theory, and his personal research with dark matter.


Greetings, folks. David Maxwell here.

As much as I detest this, I’m just posting to inform you that the current episode has been delayed by a technical issue we haven’t worked out yet. We are working on this as quickly as possible and will get this episode posted soon. I think you’re going to like it. :-)

Thanks for your patience.


Greetings, one and all! Here’s your CORICast for February 17 2011!

Mark returns with an article on the next big thing in flu treatment – Big Snake Mak. David shows us that scary headline statistics are really just as boring as his presentations. Finally, Chad finds that Romanian psychics are soon to be held accountable for their predictions.

Guess they didn’t see that one coming. (Ba-dump-bump…)

See you in two weeks!

With Mark taking a break, Chad and David bring you your CORICast for February 3, 2011.

David discusses the ins and outs of Crying Statues, and Chad brings us a new mode of transportation – the water powered jet pack.
