SKEPTICISM

For over a decade, Nick has been scrutinizing the global health and wellness industry through the critical lens of scientific skepticism. His first book, The Skeptic's Guide to Sports Science: confronting myths of the health and fitness industry, was published in 2020 and was named one of Book Authority's "Best Sports Science Books of All Time". Tiller has contributed articles on skepticism and critical thinking to numerous mainstream outlets and writes a monthly column for Skeptical Inquirer: the magazine for science and reason, published by the Center for Inquiry. See below for a collection of Nick's talks, articles, podcasts, and TV and radio spots.
