My wife was complaining to me today that I don’t podcast enough. Hah! Here’s a new episode of ID the Future.

As I’ve done already at Evolution News, I review veteran reporter Tom Bethell’s excellent new book, Darwin’s House of Cards: A Journalist’s Odyssey Through the Darwin Debates, which puts to rest the “I’m not a scientist” dodge for journalists, clergy, other professionals, and any thoughtful person at all who thinks he shouldn’t have to weigh the evidence for evolution for himself.

I’m on Twitter. Follow me @d_klinghoffer.
