The European Skeptics Podcast (TheESP) is a weekly podcast hosted by three skeptics representing several European skeptic organisations in Europe: András Gábor Pintér from Hungary, Jelena Levin from Latvia and Pontus Böckman from Sweden.[2][3][4] The main goal of the podcast is to "support European level actions within the skeptical movement."[5]

The idea of the podcast emerged at the meeting of a board of European Council of Skeptical Organisations during the 16th European Skeptics Congress in London in September 2015.[5][6] In September 2017, two of the hosts (András G Pintér and Pontus Böckman) were selected for the board of directors of ECSO[7].

The podcast was featured on Skeptoid[4], Token Skeptic podcast[8] and CSI's webpage[9], among others.

It was awarded the 2017 Ockham's Award in the podcast category by The Skeptic magazine during QED conference in Manchester, UK.[10][11]

András Gábor Pintér is the initiator of the podcast. He is an original member and vice president of the Hungarian Skeptic Society. In 1999 he received the James Randi Skeptic Award from the journal Természet Világa. In 2014 he joined, as one of the first members, Susan Gerbic's Guerrilla Skepticism on Wikipedia. In 2017 he was selected as an Associate Member of the board of directors of ECSO[7]. He currently lives in Brighton, UK.[2][3][6][9]

Jelena Levin grew up in Riga, Latvia, but now lives in the UK. She is also an active GSoW member.[2][3][9]

Pontus Böckman is a vice-president of the national Swedish Skeptics Society Föreningen Vetenskap och Folkbildning. In 2017 he was selected as a Member of the board of directors of ECSO[7]. He lives in Malmö, Sweden.[2][3][9]

Segments

The podcast is divided into several recurring segments,[12] such as This Week in Skepticism, Skeptical News (news items about skepticism, mainly European centered), Really Wrong, Really Right, Quote and an interview with a person "representing an organisation or a project either of a certain European country or stretching across borders."[13] The section Events in Europe about European skeptical organisations' events, was moved to the calendar on the podcast's webpage.[14]
