  • Robynn "Swoopy" McCarthy is an American skeptic and podcaster. She is the producer and co-host, with Derek Colanduno, of the talk show Skepticality, the official biweekly podcast of The Skeptics Society's Skeptic magazine. She is the Director for the Podcasting fan track at Dragon*Con. Swoopy has been the main researcher and writer for the Skepticality podcast since co-host Colanduno suffered an aneurysm-like brain Arteriovenous malformation in September 2005. Besides her scientific skepticism, she has an artistic side with interests including audio production, photography, and fine arts. She has been interviewed on the XM-Sirius show & podcast Slice of SciFi, and on The Skeptic Zone. McCarthy is the namesake for the asteroid 106537 McCarthy. It was named after her by Jeff Medkeff because he felt Swoopy had "pioneered the new media of podcasting and put it to service for skeptical thinking."
