The Reality Check is a weekly, 45 minute podcast hosted by members of The Ottawa Skeptics.[1] The show is hosted by Darren McKee, Adam Gardner, Cristina Roach and Pat Roach.[2][3] The show was initially created and headed by Jonathan Abrams, the founder of The Ottawa Skeptics[4] until he left the show at episode 198.[5] Former co-hosts include Elan Dubrofsky, Xander Miller and Catherine LeBel.[6]

The show explores "Scientific controversies and curiosities" and the topics of discussion are varied and include the Moon landing hoax, Big Foot, Feng Shui and the treatment of hiccups. In keeping with the satirical nature of the show, the opening theme music is often a parody of a well-known melody and performed by the co-host Pat Roach and his wife, Cristina. By November 2012, the podcast was receiving between 4000 and 5000 weekly downloads and has reached the 1 million total download milestone.[7]
