[EP 49] The Skeptoid Sessions feat. Brian Dunning

Hola Digheads! This week, through the powers of witchcraft, strong psychic abilities, and something called “Skype,” Mike and Josh are joined the host of Skeptoid, Brian Dunning!

Skeptoid is a weekly science podcast dedicated to furthering knowledge by blasting away the widespread pseudosciences that infect popular culture, and replacing them with way cooler reality.

We discuss Brian’s journey from a Mormon upbringing to becoming one of the foremost skeptics in the game. Josh probes Brian on whether he is an agent of disinformation working at the behest of the ruling class of lizard people to get us all to drink bottled water and breathe in chem trails. (SPOILER ALERT!) It turns out that he is not. Mike asks if critical thinking has helped Brian become a better person. In a sense, Brian agrees because when you figure out how the world works, the world becomes much more fun. Knowledge is power, yo!

We also discuss a number of topics for this episode including, but not limited to: The ruling class of the lizard people, taking vitamin C for colds, that Exorcist kid, faith vs. reality, rumored harmful effects of bottled water, salsa on your face, 17 year old shitheads, and so much more!
