The Yardie Skeptics are roaring back from their two week mid-season break with the usual provocative topics served up by the ineffable Fire Breather and Cool Dude! This Sunday, August 17th at 12:30pm EDT (11:30am Jamaica time) the Skeptics are back to tackle the contentious issue of gender equality in the post independence era. How far have we come as a society in ensuring that women and men operate on a level playing field? Are women poised to finally receive equal treatment in all aspects of Jamaican life, or is there a push to hearken back to the "good old days" when women "knew their place?" Be sure to check it out!

As if that wasn't enough, earlier in the show we catch up with the newest public atheist on the block, Keiran King, and ask him about his recent Gleaner article which declares there is no transcendent meaning to life. And for desert, we examine the curious suggestion by government minister Damion Crawford that Jamaica's problems are due to a decrease in the fear of God. Does he have a point, or is this the usual bullshit we've come to expect from elected representatives?

Oh yeah, we're back alright! To listen to this episode live or catch the uploaded version afterwards, simply click the link below. Feel free to call in via Skype or participate in the live chatroom to share your views and ask questions.
