Current activity[edit]

He has a regularly updated blog, magonia, [4] associated with a somewhat intermittent podcast which can more properly be regarded as record of his radio frequent radio interviews. [5]

In 2011 he produced a series of documentaries on common objects of modern scepticism with the Basque broadcaster EITB. The pilot programme asked, "Did we go to the moon?",[6] and the follow-up programme was about alternative medicine and asked, "Does it work for you?"


He has written La Cara Oculta del Misterio (the hidden face of the mystery) a skeptical book about the paranormal. [7] He also collaborated on the book "Skeptical Odysseys: Personal Accounts by the World's Leading Paranormal Investigations" [8] which included essays by many well-known British and American skeptics and scientists.
