Cellar Door Skeptics #95: The Secret Service Go Broke / Breast Milk Research / Bee Mathematicians 

Haha, the secret service should just say: “No money, no protection, you pay us yourself my moneybags super rich guy.” That and breast milk is the nectar of evolution while THE BEES KNOW NUMBER THEORY. Yeah, that was awesome.

Cellar Door Skeptics Podcast

Cellar Door Skeptics return with another episode ready to tickle your political and scientific fancy. The duo begins by taking a look at the budget that the Secret Service operates in, how it compared to Obama’s last year, and why the department is running out of money. They look at articles that predict this as far back as December 2016 while examining if other presidents have exceeded budget, or if this is exclusive to “Sun Blinded” Presidents. Later, Tanner brings up an article that looks at a new study released about breast milk properties that help fight Strep in infants. The article looks at a unique and hard to study source within mothers breast milk. To cap the show off, the team analyzes an article about whether or not bees are the first to understand the concept of zero and delve into a little bit about the history of the…

#92: Over Before it Began: the iGen Teen Social Mass Extinction

So, yet another “cell phone is the end of all the humans who stare instead of socialize in the traditional manner of dirty humans in dirty reality” apocalypse story? And yeah we should all take LSD haha.

Cellar Door Skeptics Podcast

The show tonight opens on a laughable note as we examine a brief filed by the ACLU which is attempting to help John Oliver in his battle with a crybaby coal “giant” who took offense to John Oliver’s comedy.  We also talk about an article written in the Atlantic where they have an author who believes that screen time, cell phones, and tablets are helping to destroy the next generation.  We chuckle at the iGen title and look at how habits have changed.  Closing the show out, an article from Inverse peaked our interest as we look at a recent attempt in what psychedelics could do for the scientific community.  We break down what seems real and where we start to feel the “woo woo” factor come into play.

Cellar Door Skeptics #90: American Health Care, Brains, and the Devils Cards

LIVE AND ALL THAT JAZZ! and if you are seeing this after the face, this one was fun and sad and filled with brains. Seriously, tell me it wasn’t fun! I dare ya.

Cellar Door Skeptics Podcast

The news keeps rolling in as Cellar Door Skeptics gets to take a look at two health care topics tonight that have come hot off the presses. The duo begins by looking at the July 25th vote in the Senate. They dive into the depths of John McCain’s decision to come back for the vote while examining the health care that each Senator gets. Then they mix up the show by bringing back everyone’s loved “Stupid Sh*t Chris Used to Believe” by examining his old churches belief about playing cards. They close the show out examining the article by the New York Times talking about a new study on the dangers of American Football. They aim to examine the actual scientific journal that the main article stemmed from.

If I was a Shriner . . .

Tanner didnt change the author on this one but it was me, I had some feels floating around that day…

Cellar Door Skeptics Podcast

Something that I haven’t experienced in a while happened over the weekend. I was helping my grandfather’s friends in the Shriners load 400lbs of Vidalia onions they are storing at my shop, after cordial greetings and solid tough guy man hand shakes of course, when the one gentleman asks if I was a Shriner.
My response was a light head shake in the negatory and a simple “nope”. He, as was to be expected, then asked “when I would be a Shriner”. Knowing as I do, the organization at hand and the impossibility of my fraternite’ within it, I immediately knew it was walking on eggshells time.

My response was the standard that I give to such invitations from similar groups, smiling sincerely now, “due to differences in philosophy or world view which you and my grandfather can discuss if you wish, I simply would not be able to join.”
