Is there a website where you can voice chat with a random stranger?
I've tried to use the Internet Archive for that, and it doesn't work. However, I was able to find a number of videos, some of them really interesting. They are listed here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_YouTube_sarcastic_videos I recommend to see if you can find a video that is relevant to you, if you can, you're on the right track. Some good videos are: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vVx4KFv-6zQ http://www.youtube.com/watch?

It is very easy to get sucked into the vortex of channels like talkshoe, ryohime, and many others. I could not find any good information on them and I also could not find any of them useful. They should be discontinued. I could not find a channel on irc.anonops.org with a focus on "pro-science" topics. It has no users at all. I don't know what is going on there. It is not helpful. I would love for someone to find a channel with more of a focus on the science side of things, but I can't find it. If it is an "anti-scientific" channel, it is pretty worthless.
I find it quite helpful to find websites and podcasts which are actually about science, not just pseudoscience. It is especially useful if your aim is to discuss some scientific topic.
