Podcast 66: “Boy Genius” Invents Free Energy Device & Proves Multiverse, May 15 is THE END, UFO Sightings On the Rise, Hi-Tech Juicer Fail

The world ends May 15, 2017. No, really. This is it. For reals. Seriously. Don’t believe us? We’ll see who’s laughing in 19 days (and counting)…

13-year-old boy invents free energy device, proves the existence of a multiverse, discovers our “real” universe was destroyed by Large Hadron Collider at Cern. Either that or he’s a bright, eager young science nerd unfairly lionized by a scientifically illiterate media.

And speaking of scientific literacy: Heard the one about the $400 juicer? Silicon Valley startup spends millions on a hi-tech juice machine only to discover that human hands can do the job at least as well. More venture capital well spent.

UFO sightings are on the increase! Why? Are we earthlings suddenly more interesting than we were this time last year? Nah, that can’t be it…


Podcast 63: VAXXED: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe?

Do vaccines cause autism? That’s the central question that’s been raging in the minds of many since Andrew Wakefield and colleagues held a press conference to discuss their controversial Lancet paper claiming to have identified a possible link between the MMR Vaccine and autistic enterocolitis. That was in 1998. Since then, all hell has broken loose.




Podcast 49: Robot Rights, Demon Kills Exorcist, Civilization Collapse, D.B. Cooper Clues

Quite the cornucopia of conundrums and conspiracies:

The meaning of unlucky 13. What the heck is so unlucky about it? Who came up with that ridiculous idea, anyway?

Have we really reached a point in the development of artificial intelligence where we need to start considering the legal rights of “electronic persons”? Some in the European Parliament seem to think so.

We discuss up-to-the-minute developments in the decades-old mystery of D.B. Cooper, who jumped from a plane over Oregon with two hundred thousand dollars cash and disappeared without a trace.

…and much, much more!
