When the NZ Skeptics committee chose to discontinue its long-standing journal, the NZ Skeptic, in 2000, they replaced it with a weekly newsletter. It was soon realised that the material being written for the newsletter by its editors, secretary Mark Honeychurch and chair Craig Shearer, was contemporary and useful enough to be presented in an accompanying podcast. Joined by committee member Bronwyn Rideout, the podcast was released as as biweekly, hour long episodes.

Since its inception, the Yeah… Nah! podcast has entertained and informed skeptics in New Zealand, taking a look at the weird and wonderful, and exposing misinformation and pseudoscience in all its forms.
