Yeah… Nah! is your go-to biweekly podcast for a healthy dose of skepticism from the heart of New Zealand. In a world filled with tall tales and dubious claims, your hosts Bronwyn, Craig and Mark are here to dissect, analyse, and question the local news stories that pique our skeptical interest. From the peculiar to the downright unbelievable, join us and our frequent guests as we navigate the uncharted waters of skepticism in Aotearoa.


I really like the NZ focus


Well done Skeptics NZ!!
