#238: Vote or Die
Sep 14 2020 114 mins  
It is getting closer to voting season and we are promoting getting your absentee vote on. The main discussion tonight will focus around looking at what happens in states where the local governments start to swing to either side of the election, and what impact that may have on the federal election.

The show ends with a closer look into the $15 an hour minimum wage and what the comparisons look like for living in the US versus what people are making.

#232: Meet a Local Michigan Democratic Candidate Chris Banks
Aug 04 2020 98 mins  
Cellar Door Skeptics are resurrecting their local candidate series interviewing local candidates who are running this year. Christopher Banks joins us to talk about his run for the 90th District in Ottawa County. Christopher was on the show a couple times in the past and we are delighted to talk about his platform, why he is the candidate to help change the district, and what his plans are once he gets into office. Here is his Bio. “With over 20 years of manufacturing experience, I have seen and experienced first-hand the impact our legislative body has on driving the state's economy. As an ordained minister, I have counseled and encouraged individuals through all kinds of situations. I understand the role that our legislators play in the lives of citizens: from the 'right to work', socio-economic stresses, education inequity, mental health and the cost of health care, to threats to our environment and natural resources. I am running for office because I believe all households, working class or otherwise, deserve to be heard. It is our American right to live a healthy and prosperous life.

Jul 30 2020 107 mins  
As we have survived another week amongst anti mask wearing citizens, COVID-19, Trump’s New World Order, and the conspiracy theorists, we talk about a variety of topics tonight.

Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. 2. Consequently, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves.

This week we discussed our favorite food creations, what we have been doing during quarantine, as well as the last wholesome chef, Guy Fieri. The trio look at some articles that discuss why Guy Fieri gets a lot of crap slung his way but what did he really do to deserve it? Is it the Hot Topic outerwear? Or maybe it is the flame tips in his hair? Or could it be the amount of altruism that allows him to focus on humanism rather than selfish greed? Find out this week on Cellar Door Skeptics.

#220: Spamdemic
May 19 2020 90 mins  
#220: Spamdemic Cellar Door Skeptics take on a variety of topics this week. They start by discussing Bryan Adams ridiculous instagram post that shows his ignorance and racist tendencies. They also cover why people are blaming the Ohio Medical Expert instead of the governor. They examine how the ridicule is focused on women mainly verses being skeptical about the information shared. The next topic they tackle is if doxing has ever deterred white supremacists or if they have gotten a free pass. The end of the show covers the recent short movie called Plandemic and the team debunks the recent garbage that has come across the ethers.

#217: COVID’s Gentleman’s Armchair Philosophizing
Apr 29 2020 106 mins  
The world is continuing with the shutdown, and Cellar Door Skeptics wants to talk about the conspiracy theories once again for those who still do not seem to get it. Over the last couple weeks we have seen many people protesting to have the restriction lifted and as we record this episode we realize that this may become reality sooner than it possibly should. The team tackles some more common conspiracy theories and again explains statistics for those who do not have that education and should stop trying to down play this virus. They also review if deleting your facebook would help with your sanity as many people have excess time on their hands to talk to each other in an unchecked medium. The show ends with the quick saves as usual.

#216: How Local Elections Are More Influential than You Thought
Apr 21 2020 90 mins  
If you are worried about the pandemic like most of us are and are worried about the questionable decisions that our current administration is making, this show is for you. After seeing Bernie bow out of the race for president and endorse “Biden”, we interview two local candidates running in this year's election in Michigan. We discuss why taking local positions for granted is a mistake and how even a small impact that a Drain Commissioner role can serve helps move the state into a more progressive status if we elect the right individuals. They also tackle some of the failures that the White House has committed in their attempt to try and mitigate the virus. They also look at the science behind everyone staying at home and how it is impacting the environment.

#180: Why Should Nazis Be Able to Disrupt a Pride Event? Cellar Door Skeptics is back this week to talk about Nazi’s. While we still promote the punching of nazis we need to look at what happened at the Detroit Pride Festival this last week. What appears to be either a purposeful ignorance on the detroit police departments behalf or a misplaced thoughtful guesture to try and keep things civil, Detroit Police gave an escort to the NSM Nazi movement that decided to protest the Pride Festival in Detroit Michigan. We take a deep dive into what it means for free speech rights as well as some past court cases that could guide us to understand what the motive was for protecting a group that literally wants other minority groups to either leave the country or to be exterminated.

#178: New Theory on Distribution Method for Salaries Cellar Door Skeptics have an extended weekend but cram out an episode between cooking and working this holiday week. We apologize for not releasing on Wednesday but we promise this episode is worth the wait. The show begins with a conversation on a new theory that has been tested by a few companies where they give more money to those on the bottom of the workforce verses distributing it back to the top. The team also talks about Ford’s job restructuring and how Trump’s awesome plans have really “helped” that industry. We also look at an article that talks about how Trump has maneuvered his tax returns and created standards for others in a similar class to do the same. The show ends with a discussion on a new scientific discovery about how volcanoes form as well as the Quick Saves of the week.

#177: Has Trump been a good President?
May 22 2019 132 mins  
#177: Has Trump been a good President? Tonight the episode looks into a debate that was had between two passionate individuals. One of those individuals is a trump supporter and believes that Trump has been a great president. The other debater does not feel that trump is a good president and is hopeful of a change next election cycle. The debate format is casual, with Christopher Tanner acting as the moderator. The concept of the debate is to allow for the two to discuss some major points about his presidency, policies and some overarching issues of the Republican Party. The debate initially started when Dallas offered $300 to anyone willing to debate him on if Trump is a great president. They agreed to donate the money to charity once the debate is over. ———————— Dallas D is taking the side that Trump is a great president and has done a great job. His bio: “I’m just a guy who likes debating ideas. I am a Nashville musician with a casual interest in politics. Mike and I grew up in the same town and went to elementary school and middle school together.” Miike S is taking the opposition and doesn’t think Trump has been good as a president. His position: “I hold the belief that Donald Trump as our president is bad for both America and the world. I believe Donald Trump’s rhetoric of ‘fake news’ and ‘alternative facts’ has cultivated a following that is willing to dismiss facts and scientific research as left wing media and liberal conspiracies. I think it is dangerous to have American voters groomed to distrust any media that challenges their political beliefs. I find his inept tweets and speeches condoning violence embarrassing and dangerous. He has failed domestically, where he demonstrates poor leadership and continues to drive a divide within our nation. He has failed abroad, where he embarrasses our nation, disrespects allies whilst celebrating violent regimes, and abandons the international community’s drive to protect our environment.” His bio: “I grew up in Evans, GA where I met Dallas in elementary school. I’ve since been friends with him mostly through social media where we’ve discussed different perspectives. I left Georgia in 2005 and moved to California, where I graduated college. I currently work and live in Kalamazoo, Michigan in the pharmaceutical industry as a Group Leader/Scientist in Laboratory Automation and Programming. I don’t discuss politics often since Trump’s election. However, I hold a general interest in different world perspectives and how politics shape societies. This interest has guided my travels to places like the Crimean peninsula, the Middle East, and North Korea. I don’t believe I hold any merit that especially qualifies me to understand Trump’s presidency better than anyone else, and I hope to be viewed as an average voting American sharing my perspective.” Subscribe: http://www.spreaker.com/user/cellardoorskeptics Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/CellarDoorSkeptics RSS Feed: https://www.spreaker.com/user/8326690/episodes/feed iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/cellar-door-skeptics/id1044088575?mt=2&ign-mpt=uo%3D4 Website: http://cellardoorskeptics.com Stitcher: http://www.stitcher.com/podcast/cellar-door-skeptics Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/cellardoorskeptics PayPal: https://www.paypal.me/CellarDoorSkeptics Intro Music: http://aloststateofmind.com/

#176: How State's Rights Fail Women The show goes back to its roots this week with a live episode looking at different current events and some interesting information they felt was worthy of an episode. As we begin the show, we look into Trump’s desire to steal and claim quotes and accomplishments for his own even if he did not actually affect the outcome. Trump has been given the GEOTUS title more than once, but really is he god or god-like? We look at his ridiculous claim made this week. Later we discuss the new abortion laws that continue to strip women of their rights. We look at a couple of articles that have come out discussing the horrific nature and what precedent it could set. The episode takes a quick step to the science end of the universe to talk about if Dinosaurs could have been dragons. The last segment is a discussion on price fixing by drug companies. The show ends as usual with the duo’s Quick Saves of the week.

#174: Wight Walkers Carbon Foot Print The shows starts off with the duo talking about End Game and the recent GOT epic battle. They try and leave out all the spoilers and focus just on their experiences with these shows. The show continues with examining if Non-believers could be the key to swing the election for the democrats or if it will just be another Trump 2020 pony show. They look at the recent studies that show non-belief has surpassed christians and how this could affect things. A great article from a local paper sparked their interest and they delved into what is the difference between Liberal Socialism and Democratic Socialism. If you believed that Bernie is a Democratic Socialist do not miss this segment as they dissect the beliefs of some of the recent candidates. Last article for the night covers an NPR report on whether or not companies like Blue Apron are better for the environment than grocery stores. No the duo has not sought sponsorship, but they are interested in examining the carbon footprint each has. The show closes as usual with their Quick Saves of the week.

Apr 24 2019 73 mins  
#173:Changing Your Mind Through Psychedelics Cellar Door Skeptics is back again with another timeless episode. This week the duo take a break from a solely political episode to talk about the book How to Change Your Mind. They journey through some of the studies that talk about psychedelics and how they can affect us and what the sciences are saying about them. They also review studies about micro dosing and how those affect how people perceive “alternative medicines”. They do touch on how trump might not be good for himself in the midst of the 2020 election looming over us. The show ends as usual with Tanner and Hanna’s quick save selections for the week.

#172: Sir Scams A lot Cellar Door Skeptics are back this week after a one week hiatus. We apologize for the week off and come back full force this week to talk about some important topics. This week the duo talks about digital remote diagnosis that has been sweeping the country and is what some has lauded as an answer to expensive doctors visits. The discussion centers around if this is worth it and what the constraints to this method of diagnosis could be. The show continues talking about a supplement study that shows that supplements are not what they are cracked up to be. The show also will cover a discussion on social media scams that have started to become more prominent. The show ends as always with the team’s quick saves of the week.

#171: Examining Bernie Sanders VS Andrew Yang
Apr 03 2019 68 mins  
The show takes a dive back into politics this week as we look at the difference between Andrew Yang’s policy proposals and Bernie Sanders Proposals. With the 2020 election geering up, we felt it would be a benefit to look into if there was differences between two candidates. We our joined b y our podcast friend Boyce from Mindful Skeptics right here in West Michigan as we meet up to share our opinions on the subject. This episode broke on of our oaths to not discuss candidates till closer to the election, but we felt that there was enough buzz between the two candidates that it was worth examining. We still will not side with any one specific candidate, but we will look at these two and determine if there is any similarities between them and if it is worth even looking at Mr Yang.

The duo looks at the differences between last year's budget, this years budget and how it compares to other administrations budgets.

#166: Black History Month & More with The Triple C's This show’s guest for the night is Christopher Banks, whom is currently running for the State House in Michigan in 2020. He joins us tonight to discuss Black History Month, share his stories, and help give credit to the minorities who have helped shape this country. Without minorities, we would not be the nation we are today. We discuss the origins of Black History Month, experiences with helping others learn about black culture and contributions, all while enjoying each other’s company. The show is almost like the trifecta of Christophers as there are three on this episode. The team even gets Mr. Banks to throw out a Quick Save as they look at what they learned for the week.

#165: Be Intellectually Humble Through Intelligent Speculation Well if you have not heard the news, #45 is not shutting down the government, but issuing a national emergency to get his ridiculous wall built. This week on the show we had to address the wall, some of the criticisms or lies that he is supporting to try and fund the wall, and how there could be an emerging law suit all because he has to brag about his supposed accomplishments. The interview part of the show is with a PHD candidate of Physics and creator of Intellegent Speculation Platform. We discuss with him what he purposes as the laws of critical thinking, how he became a freethinker, and his journey to agnosticism. Given the climate we live in, this is an important subject we hope everyone engages in to try with the upcoming elections. The show closes talking about our charity of the week and our Quick Saves.

They start the episode out by talking the phenomena that Hanna has found where Paper Airplanes are playing a new role in automation. The show moves toward a discussion on how the Bible is not only a harmful to display in schools but may also be harmful to Christians as they take their journey with their faith. They then interview Marie from Everyone’s Agnostic Podcast with her decision to join the show and her desire to help those who want to leave their faith and need stories to guide them through the journey.

#163: Tanner Goes to Jesus Camp This week has been a long week for the team. This episode comes a day late as the team is trying to catch up on work and home life. But do not fear they managed to put together a thoughtful episode this week. It begins with a discussion on the Super Bowl, The Ads, and Trump’s State of the Union Address. They continue the show with a look at the charity of the week, Camp Quest Michigan. They tell stories about their camp experiences and how it affected their lives. The show ends with a discussion about Jesus Camp, how it related to Tanner’s upbring and camp experiences, and a look into what Hanna may encounter when his children grow up and want to go to camp.

#162: Do Democrats Oppose Walls / New York’s Late Term Abortion Law
Jan 30 2019 86 mins  
#162: Do Democrats Oppose Walls / New York’s Late Term Abortion Law The duo starts the show off talking about the charity of the week. The Holocaust was a huge tragedy that plagued the world in the 30s and 40s. The charity is a local memorial museum that helps everyone know the history of the atrocities that happened to millions of people. As the show continues on, Tanner talks about some of the recent articles pushed by the Anti-Choice groups that believe the New York law allowing women to have abortions after 24 weeks due to complications is going to lead to women having numerous abortions because they just want to. The articles use fear tactics, fake news, and slippery slope arguments to try and conflate the real news of women being able to make their own choices about their health care. The final segment Hanna did some research to investigate how many times democrats have voted for a wall.

#161: Hugs or High Fives with Sara Cunningham of Free Mom Hugs
Jan 23 2019 113 mins  
#161: Hugs or High Fives with Sara Cunningham of Free Mom Hugs Cellar Door Skeptics is bringing you not one, but two charities of the week. Their segment talking about local charities is extended this week as they interview Sara Cunningham of Free Mom Hugs, an organization dedicated to help other parents realize the having children whom are LGBTQ is wonderful and normal. Sara tells her story about how she left conservative christian beliefs and came to the understanding that her beliefs should never dictate who she loves. She talks about her organization Free Mom Hugs, how it started, and the desire to help make an impact on society to shed the ridiculous idea that LGBTQ people are not deserving of love. Check out our full unedited interview on Patreon for a longer version of our discussion. After talking about the different charities, the duo tackle the highly controversial video of the MAGA hat wearing youth, their confrontation with a Native American Elder, and why even with the longer video we need to stop and examine the evidence before letting these children off the hook. Chris Squared take a deep dive into an emotional subject and look at some of the reasons they feel the situation should be given a second look without just accepting what the media said. This segment is full of passion, as both of the Chris’ wade through how the situation could have been handled better by the children, and how even if they were screaming, how their MAGA hats represent the hate and racism embodied within our society. The show ends as always with Hanna’s and Tanner’s Infamous Quick Saves of the week.

This week they examine some of the proposed bills that are pushing the Democratic Party more progressive.

The Charity of the Week focuses on Wigs for Kids. This amazing charity helps make it possible for children to receive wigs if cancer has helped remove the hair on their heads. This organization has played a big role within Michigan providing over 4000 wigs to children in Michigan. This episodes in depth analysis segment reviews research funding.

#156: Predicting 2020 and The Competition If you thought the show was becoming stale, check out this week's episode with the C Plus Plus duo, which is their new nickname thanks to an amazing listener last week. The duo talks through a Florida community that got hit by the Marijuana Bug and had a 12 year old sell marijuana edibles to students in one of their counties. The problem comes when Fox and Friends tries to associate Marijuana with overdosing and toxic environment that harms children. The child got 7 felonies for distributing the drug and Tanner goes on a rant to discuss that there is no reason why this child should face that many years in jail for selling pot. They also talk about the local charity of the week called Creative Youth Center in Grand Rapids, promoting creative writing skills amongst local children within the Grand Rapids city limits. This charity helps students bring out their creative skills and develop creative thinking skills to help them have a more rounded life. They continue with a Hanna Rant on Thermodynamics and some of the discussions that have plagued his facebook wall over the last week. This quick science segment tackles how some of the inconsistencies that people normally like to spout when they want to disprove evolution. The show ends discussing some tactics that should be used in the 2020 election period. The discussion surrounds some of the key points on how to tackle the Trump Problem and how we can focus on creating a better more constructive environment within our government. The show ends with Hanna’s and Tanner’s Quick Saves of the week.

#154: Trail of Tear Gas
Nov 27 2018 78 mins  
#154: A Trail of Tear Gas Cellar Door Skeptics starts the show off talking about their Thanksgiving experiences and if the politics divided their dinner tables this year. They also talked about their charity of the week BeNice. Mental health is the main focus for this program as it works to educate schools on bullying and techniques to help schools better cope with the issues that are affecting students now a days. Their science segment this week looks at Plants and Ants, which came first and how evolution played a role between species that are not able to breed. The political segment this week talks about Trump's desire to take control of the military troops to “protect” the border without running afoul of Congress.

#149: Changing the Political Landscape with Ron, Garnet, and Jerry The local political discussion continues with Cellar Door Skeptics as they interview politics at the local level who will help make a difference in our society. The GOP continues to want to claim states rights is the only way to go. Well we feel we need to fight back by taking local politics back while moving Michigan from a hazy red toward a strong blue. The wave is coming and without your voice, we can not change society to be more progressive without you. This week we talk with Ron Draayer running for office in the 72 district, Garnet Lewis in the 26th District, and Jerry in the 89th district. The common theme we talk about is helping the populous of Michigan, while continuing to help those in need. Each candidate focuses on how they can help shape Michigan to be more humanistic in their values while protecting minorities and creating as fair a landscape as possible.

By now you know that the show is discussing local politics and the importance of getting out to vote this November. This week the duo interview candidates in Tanner’s district in Ottawa County. Tanner meets with both candidates to talk about their stories, their desire to improve our society, and what got them into politics. This week is special as Tanner connects with people who affect his local community and the communities around him. They talk through healthcare in Michigan with an emphasis on Mental Health and how Michigan could be better at working through their issues with healthcare. But the meat of the episode is when Tanner talks with both guests on their entry into politics, how they are more humanistic than the GOP counterparts, while continuing to work toward the electorate. This episode mixes their personal beliefs with challenges for the candidates they endorse to try and work toward a way to keep them honest while fixing the immediate problems Michigan has.

#145: Demon Rats Summon Brett Kavanagh from the Dead
Sep 27 2018 122 mins  
#145: Demon Rats Summon Brett Kavanagh from the Dead “In the immortal words of BMO: Sometimes life is scary and dark. That is why we must find the light.” Cellar Door Skeptics takes a serious turn this week looking at the Brett Kavanagh situation and some the ridiculous arguments people are using to try and demonize those who support the women he abused. We look into why people feel the need to try and minimize women like they have been doing for thousands of years while looking at why this is NOT a witch hunt but society starting to come to terms with how we need to change how we treat women. They side step into a science segment on a new discovery of how a new non-toxic glue could help revolutionize the toxic waste our societies produce. The shows last segment covers China’s new social credit score. Chris Squared discuss amongst themselves their hesitancy toward this new policy all while Hanna poses a solution that Tanner does not quite agree with. This segment they talk through the pro’s and con’s of Hanna’s solution while looking at alternative ways to help deter the problematic parts of the internet. The show’s final note rings true with a new quick segment called “Quick Save” where they discuss an article or circumstance that they each quick saved and looked back on later as a new idea that made them stop and think while appreciating life a little bit more.

#144: Before Orion

#144: Before Orion This week Cellar Door Skeptics is coming at you with a fresh episode while changing up their normal discussion. The episode starts with some friendly banter about a "Non" ruling by the supreme court on the disclosure of donors to a Non Profit Organization. They talk through what it could mean for those who donate and if we should be worried. The meat of the show though is an interview with Bernie Taylor. Bernie Taylor is the author of Before Orion a discussion on Monomyths and how religion could all be related. "Before Orion explores a deeper root for this monomyth by looking at how hunter-gatherers viewed themselves within the natural and spiritual worlds through Paleolithic cave art from 40,000 years ago." This interview was very interesting and provided a unique perspective on the origins of religion.

#141: Does California's Prop 13 Smell Moldy and Rotten?
Aug 30 2018 70 mins  
#141: Does California Prop 13 Smells Moldy and Rotten The team is back at it again this week with an action packed episode filled with quips, humor, science, and of course politics. This week they talk through how crazy Michigan’s weather was during recording as a new to Tanner weather term emerged. Of course it would not be a show without a look into what Trump has done this week to one up the antics of the previous week. They look at his urge to Pastors to violate the Johnson Amendment this midterm because Antifa is coming to take your rights away if Democrats win. Also Trump has remained almost mute on the passing of John McCain while folding his arms in the style matching Tanner’s 8 year old when she is angry and doesn’t want to talk. For Chris Squared’s science segment, the duo looks a new study that shows sexual activity in teens have not increased just because the HPV Vaccine was made available for free in some states. While many conservatives and christians would have you believe we would have more teens having sex early, these studies show why facts should always outweigh our beliefs. The show ends examining California's Prop 13 and why some in California want to repeal it. The discussion gets lively as Tanner expresses his displeasure in what was a well meaning bill back in the 70’s now harming low income and the funding the state gets to help support those in need.

#140: Death of a Military Parade
Aug 22 2018 71 mins  
#140: Death of a Military Parade Special Guest: Boyce L of Mindful Skeptics Podcast Trump is at it again blaming others for the failings of his team and the governments unwillingness to support his military parade. The parade has been called off by Trump and we have the latest discussion on why Trump thinks it is ridiculous he had to cancel his military parade. If that put you in too much of a sad clown mood, the team decided to cover the top 100 horror stories ever written. NPR categorized the top 100 horror stories and the team decides to talk through all the nostalgia of their youth growing up reading some amazing stories. They transition into talking about a new wear resistant alloy metal that could revolutionize how often parts break down. A new discovery has happened where a team has discovered platinum gold alloy that does not have as much wear and tear as other metals. This could change how we make things and how we can reduce the amount of waste in our environment. Lastly Chris Squared talk about Manafort and the charges that he could be facing. While this is nothing new, they look at what it would mean for Trump to pardon him, if Trump will pardon him, and what that means for other countries.

Aug 15 2018 66 mins  
#139: Tis The Season to Kneel / Slayer Loves us All Cellar Door Skeptics is back at it with another action packed episode. The duo talks about the NFL decision to postpone their ruling on suspensions for not standing for the national anthem while examining #45 tweets that fit into an authoritarian government that the GOP hates so much. They also cover a new medical study that is studying medical marijuana on mice for intestinal issues. The research is starting to expand as people are now testing different theories of how marijuana can help others. As the show winds down they cover Tanner's recent Slayer concert, his distaste of some of the bands personal interests and takes a look at the accusations of Slayer being linked to White Supremacy. If that was not enough they covered a new article about how facial recognition and replication software can map one face to another persons face. This has become concerning because it can be used to bolster the fake news industry.

#138: Printing Guns for Civil War
Aug 08 2018 81 mins  
#138: Printing Guns for Civil War Cellar Door Skeptics visits the dark corner of the web as it looks at 3D printed guns. Tanner takes an unusual stance looking at why people are that upset with 3D printed guns when they are already illegal. The duo discusses some of the moralistic arguments used to review whether we should restrict those that distribute the 3D gun prints. The duo continues their show talking about the future of the GOP Trump based electorate. They talk through the idea of supporting Russia over Hillary Clinton and how people could even consider this option as a viable in the face of so much push back on election collusion. The show ends with a discussion on the Religious Task Force the infamous Jeff Sessions wants to create. When he is not creating havoc on legalizing weed, he is claiming religion should play a bigger role in governing our nation. Check out how the duo handles the conversation about creating a nationalized religious majority that is accepted nation wide.

Episode 136: Amazon is NOT a Public God Cellar Door Skeptics is back this week looking to tackle whether or not Amazon should take over public libraries. A since retracted article from Forbes, stated that Amazon is so efficient maybe public libraries are no longer necessary. The duo takes on this claim and talk about how capitalism always thinks it is better than any social program. They also reflect on how inflation has created an offset for any tax reform we have seen over the last couple years. All the gains that lower and middle income families and individuals have seen have slowly been drown out by the inflation of goods we purchase. Lastly the team talk about the new show Who is America. They review a few of the segments on the show, highlight some of the people who decide they will show their true colors, and laugh as the host outs many of the people in public office.

Jul 18 2018 75 mins  
#135: The Darkest Timeline - This week in American Politics Cellar Door Skeptics returns with a more serious episode. Tanner and Hanna talk about how America has entered the darkest timeline. Society seems to continue to feel like we live in Bizarro World as Trump creates a denaturalization taskforce. This is not as funny as space force was because it is setup to start deporting citizens. To help ease some of the bad news this week, the duo talk about their love of the local art museum, what it was like to see a dragon exhibit, and how even as skeptics we love some of the romanticised ideas of the past. They close the show out by talk about Trump’s new pick and how maybe he is the new Forest Gump of republican politics.

#133:Trade Wars and Boycotting God Chicken
Jun 27 2018 88 mins  
#133:Trade Wars and Boycotting God Chicken Cellar Door Skeptics takes a step back this week with a more mellow disposition to the discussion of the current state of America. The duo start the episode off talking about a survey eliciting peoples opinion on what could be better alternatives to boycotting organizations that do not fit your moral compass. They later move on to a discussion about E3, their favorite titles, and how as privileged men, they are able to enjoy the rich story and satisfying game play these new video games have over them. They also reflect back to their childhoods as they discover the inner soul that once made them children in a wondrous land. The episode concludes talking about tariffs, trade goods, and the new war on the middle class.

#132: Eating Trump Steaks in Space
Jun 20 2018 84 mins  
Episode 132: Trump Steaks in Space This episode of Cellar Door Skeptics has a large explicit tag attached to the episode. In the bizarro world we live in, we have seen many changes this week in America. First we saw Space Force announced by commander in chief 45. Then we saw America leave the Human Rights Council because the UN would not do exactly what we wanted. Finally we are watching unprecedented action being taken by ICE and the Federal Government to separate families all in the name of that damned wall. Chris squared become a little passionate in this episode as they tackle some hard changes the American public has seen in under one weeks time. Join them as they rant, cry, and beg America to change its course before it is too late.

#129: Kneeling in Solidarity This week's episode begins with a discussion on Memorial Day. The duo talks about their feelings for the holiday, the special happenings in their lives, and how they handle this holiday with relatives and others who celebrate it. They continue with an interview with Blasphemy Apparel , a local Michigan company dedicated to free speech, while driving forward the image that nothing is held above ridicule, discussion, and approach. The episode closes with a powerful segment talking about the new NFL rule where they claim to fine NFL teams for players who refuse to stand for the national anthem. This topic hits close to home as Chris Squared work together as allies fighting against oppression of POC and the many deaths our government has dealt them. They express their honest opinions of what they feel the NFL has done, and where the NFL’s loyalty lay.

#128: Rome is Burning and We are Drinking Gasoline
May 22 2018 92 mins  
#128: Rome is Burning and We are Drinking Gasoline After a week leave of absence, the hosts rejoin reality and the show to talk about some important discoveries and opinions. Back in episode 105, the team talked about baby drop boxes and how they had been successful in other states as a means to drop off a baby without alerting the law to it. Recently a law has been passed for Michigan that will allow for some of these baby drop boxes to be placed in Michigan. They talk through what the means and how important of a bipartisan step that Michigan lawmakers have made. The without much ado, Chris Squared talk about #45 nomination of Gina Haspel, the Queen of Torture. They discuss their disappointment an this pick as well as all the members who help confirm her to the Director of the CIA seat. In an effort to be impartial, they look at her record, how it fits into where we are at as a country, and if we get to “Hilary Did It” to wash any dirty laundry Gina may bring to the table. The show ends discussing a study on CSR or Corporate Social Responsibility. The study dove into how corporations are going above and beyond to drive social change, and what that allows for employees to do. You would think this would be good for society and in turn for the world. But the study is not as favorable to this as one would hope. #CSR #CorporateSocialResponsibility #GinaHaspel #CIA #BabyBoxes #Podcast #HillaryClinton #WarCrimes #Torture Subscribe: http://www.spreaker.com/user/cellardoorskeptics Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/CellarDoorSkeptics RSS Feed: https://www.spreaker.com/user/8326690/episodes/feed iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/cellar-door-skeptics/id1044088575?mt=2&ign-mpt=uo%3D4 Website: http://cellardoorskeptics.com Stitcher: http://www.stitcher.com/podcast/cellar-door-skeptics Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/cellardoorskeptics PayPal: https://www.paypal.me/CellarDoorSkeptics Intro Music: http://aloststateofmind.com/ Links ------ http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer/2018/05/cia-nominee-gina-haspel-wont-say-if-torture-is-immoral.html https://www.pbs.org/newshour/nation/cias-haspel-can-tap-undercover-work-in-russian-operations https://www.washingtonpost.com/outlook/i-went-to-prison-for-disclosing-the-cias-torture-gina-haspel-helped-cover-it-up/2018/03/15/9507884e-27f8-11e8-874b-d517e912f125_story.html?noredirect=on&utm_term=.4ee6b3994582 ------ https://www.spreaker.com/user/cellardoorskeptics/toasted-misogynist-thanksgiving http://michiganradio.org/post/michigan-house-oks-devices-parents-can-use-surrender-newborns http://wgntv.com/2018/04/09/infant-safe-after-being-left-in-baby-box-near-michigan-city/ http://michiganradio.org/post/do-we-need-baby-boxes ------ http://freakonomics.com/podcast/corporate-social-responsibility/ https://www.forbes.com/sites/susanmcpherson/2018/01/12/8-corporate-social-responsibility-csr-trends-to-look-for-in-2018/#5c7ab9ba40ce https://www.businessnewsdaily.com/4679-corporate-social-responsibility.html

#127: Center For Inquiry and Civics Day Today’s episode is special and one that Tanner felt was needed after a long day of talking to legislators. This episode is done in solo as Hanna has taken off a few weeks to be with his wife and newborn daughter. This episode will focus on the recent Civic’s Day hosted by CFI Michigan at the Michigan State capitol building. The episode will talk about his experiences, the desire to start working toward changing people’s minds when it comes to interacting with local politics, and staying involved with up to date information about the bills going around in Michigan. The goals the Chris Squared Duo have set for themselves and their desire to promote local politics first, lead them to start researching and attending different events in an effort to continue their pursuit of a better government. Sit back, relax, grab a drink (especially unsweetened ice tea), and listen in as Tanner talks about learning to become more involved politically.

#126: Alpha God: The Psychology of Religious Violence and Oppression This episode is a solo effort by Tanner, as Hanna’s wife just had their second child and he is taking time off to be with the family. We wish him the best and are excited to see all the amazing baby pictures whenever he recovers from the shock of being a father a second time. The episode though is close to Tanner’s heart as he interviews Dr Hector Garcia, author of Alpha God The Psychology of Religious Violence and Oppression. As we all know Tanner loves evolution and this discussion hits home as he talks with the doctor about religion and how evolution played a big role in how it developed, adapted, and gives us even more reason to disbelieve the fairy tale that has encapsulated millions throughout the last couple millenia. But without giving away to much of the book check out this latest episode with the amazing Dr Hector Garcia as he inspires Tanner with new theories and discussion points on the origins of religion.

125: Occupy Till I Come and Other Tales from the Cellar Cellar Door Skeptics Podcast is at it again with another episode solely focused on the Chris Squared discussions of current events and relevant science topics. The show begins with a discussion of the recently deceased Barbara Bush, Justin Bieber’s religious musical, and a discussion on Stephen Hawking’s final paper. If that was not enough to entice you, the duo resurrects “Crazy S*** Chris Used to Believe”. They delve into a look at the internet pastor Dave who thinks masturbation makes you gay. And they do not stop their as they talk about Tanner’s upbring with the willfully ignorant church who taught Tanner things it took years to correct. They examine how “Pastor Dave” is not the coach he seems and work toward engaging the bible in a thoughtful discussion on how crazy “Pastor Dave” spews toxicity in the ears of those who listen. The show wraps up talking about artificial sweeteners, the science or lack thereof, and how we should all do our due diligence to ensure that we do not believe the trending garbage spewed in the name of “natural health”.

#124: Women v. Religion: The Case Against Faith This week on Cellar Door Skeptics, Tanner interviews three amazing authors representing their new book, Women VS Religion. Alexis, Candace, and Karen join the show to talk about their essays on how religion has affected them as women. The book is a collection of essays by different women, from different walks of life, all talking about the damage that religion has done to women. Each essay is a different story told through different lenses to allow for a unique blend of upbringing, beliefs, apostasy, and an understanding on how to survive the different aspects of religion as a women. The show is important because it helps to highlight the unique struggles women face during and after religion has touched or been apart of their lives.

#122: Is the Atheist Movement the Sensible Middle
Apr 04 2018 84 mins  
#122: Is the Atheist Movement the Sensible Middle Cellar Door Skeptics begins the episode this week talking about the media corporations, specifically Sinclair, and what it means to have one corporation own 70% of the media networks. The discussion surrounds printed newspapers and if the country would move back to printed media if we started to have to pay for online articles. The duo also look at Bill “Shootee” new proposal to help children read. Essentially his idea was to have a public place and demand kids read. This sounds like an authoritarian version of a library. Funny how in the last 5 years that the GOP has controlled Michigan we are only now trying to deal with our education problem. Lastly Chris Squared decided to talk about a recent article in Vice about how the Atheist movement looks like it is veering toward an alt right political position. They tackle the dialog between the Vice article and a Friendly Atheist article. As they flesh out these two articles, an earnest discussion started with a look at a prominent Atheist whose political beliefs have veered toward a Neo-con mentality. They deconstruct whether the “Sensible Middle” is where the Atheist movement has always been or if it is leaving and heading more conservative.

#120: Betsy Devos Dumpster Fire and Jesus Returns
Mar 21 2018 92 mins  
#120: Betsy Devos Dumpster Fire and Jesus Returns Cellar Door Skeptics returns this week with an in depth look into Betsy Devos and her recent interview blunder. The duo talks through the fact that she was not able to present her platform with anything more than talking points. They also examine the school rankings in hopes that Betsy will listen to the episode and be able to actually go to some of the schools that may need help. They also compare the difference in rating from Charter Schools to Public Schools to see if there is any truth behind Betsy Devos candid claim that Choice is Better. Later Tanner interviews Author Matthew James a PHD Neuroscientist who has written a book about Jesus Returning. Now this is not your average book and the interview is full of irrelevance and laughter. The book is about Jesus coming back to try and reclaim the earth after the failure of his father, God, to do so. Humans are just running to wild without his divine presence and Jesus tries to rectify it. This light hearted interview will let you get to know the author and preview a funny book. The show ends on a high note, talking about Fusion and how it is playing a role in changing how we perceive energy. They talk through the science behind a new experiment done recently and examine what fruits may come from this type of discovery. Don’t forget you can join Cellar Door Skeptics April 7th at the Michigan Atheist 30th State convention in Farmington Hills Michigan. #Atheist #Atheism #JesusReturns #Author #Podcast #BetsyDevos #DumpsterFire #MichiganAtheist #FusionPower #Fusion #Science Subscribe: http://www.spreaker.com/user/cellardoorskeptics Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/CellarDoorSkeptics RSS Feed: https://www.spreaker.com/user/8326690/episodes/feed iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/cellar-door-skeptics/id1044088575?mt=2&ign-mpt=uo%3D4 Website: http://cellardoorskeptics.com Stitcher: http://www.stitcher.com/podcast/cellar-door-skeptics Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/cellardoorskeptics PayPal: https://www.paypal.me/CellarDoorSkeptics Intro Music: http://aloststateofmind.com/ Links ------ https://www.meetup.com/MichiganAtheists/events/246696872/ https://www.eventbrite.com/e/michigan-atheists-30th-annual-state-convention-tickets-42926217472 ------ https://www.theatlantic.com/education/archive/2018/03/betsy-devos-60-minutes/555566/ http://www.michigan.gov/documents/mde/School_Rankings_and_Reward_Status_At_a_Glance_548641_7.pdf http://www.michigan.gov/mde/0,4615,7-140-81376_81377_56562---,00.html https://goo.gl/CxRxoQ https://www.freep.com/story/news/education/2018/02/13/michigan-school-ratings-system/333622002/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hRQNtWLCSh0 ------ https://www.smashwords.com/profile/view/MatthewSmithen https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/790070 https://twitter.com/Onlyanatheist1 tps://tinyurl.com/yce6bvtg ------ https://engr.source.colostate.edu/in-csu-lab-laser-heated-nanowires-produce-micro-scale-nuclear-fusion-with-record-efficiency/ https://www.nature.com/articles/s41467-018-03445-z https://www.popularmechanics.com/science/energy/a19456995/unique-nuclear-fusion-experiment-uses-lasers-to-heat-nanowires/ https://www.pbs.org/newshour/science/nuclear-fusion-power-source-one-step-closer-reality https://www.psi.ch/niag/what-is-neutron-imaging

So they decided to do it all over again and read through some of the best (or worst) of 2017. Be prepared for honest emissions and some raunchy good time. For the last part of the show, Jen and Keith help Chris Squared to work through a Proust Questionnaire.

This episode has two topics; Atheist Conventions and Gun Control. David Silverman joins the duo this week to talk about the American Atheist Convention coming up on Easter weekend. They talk about the dynamic of the convention, their desire to present an activist convention while still holding true to their atheist roots. American Atheist also is working hard to give back to the community even during their convention. After the interview Chris Squared talk about the argument some people are posing that since drunk driving accidents are caused by people wielding cars and no one is seeking to ban cars, then why are people seeking to ban guns. They talk through this misconception and discuss more comprehensible gun laws inside of the United States. They are not out to ban guns but to lower the amount of mass shootings and gun deaths inside of States. #AmericanAtheist #DavidSilverman #AtheistConvention #GunControl #MassShooting #Parkland #MichiganAtheist #Podcast Subscribe: http://www.spreaker.com/user/cellardoorskeptics Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/CellarDoorSkeptics RSS Feed: https://www.spreaker.com/user/8326690/episodes/feed iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/cellar-door-skeptics/id1044088575?mt=2&ign-mpt=uo%3D4 Website: http://cellardoorskeptics.com Stitcher: http://www.stitcher.com/podcast/cellar-door-skeptics Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/cellardoorskeptics PayPal: https://www.paypal.me/CellarDoorSkeptics Intro Music: http://aloststateofmind.com/ Links ----- https://www.meetup.com/MichiganAtheists/events/246696872/ https://www.eventbrite.com/e/michigan-atheists-30th-annual-state-convention-tickets-42926217472 ----- https://www.atheists.org/convention2018/ https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/23848169-fighting-god https://www.atheists.org/support/ ----- http://volokh.com/2012/12/18/drunk-driving-vs-mass-shooting/ http://www.bbc.com/news/world-australia-35048251 https://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/2389047 Drunk driving not the same as mass shootings http://volokh.com/2012/12/18/drunk-driving-vs-mass-shooting/ Gun Death Statistics http://time.com/5168272/how-many-school-shootings/ http://www.bradycampaign.org/key-gun-violence-statistics https://www.forbes.com/sites/tarahaelle/2017/06/19/american-denial-about-facts-on-guns-continues-to-kill-children/#5a47719a4a9a

Their first topic for the tonight is a great interview with Lindsay Beyerstein and her new documentary “Care in Chaos”. The filmmaker talks about her experiences with a couple of women’s health clinics that are being bombarded by antics from Anti-Choice groups that will make your blood boil. This heartfelt look at how awful our nation can be, shows the strength and courage of the women who work at these clinics. As the episode rolls onward, the duo discuss extreme poverty in America, and how the a new study finds poverty of the world is not always combated with compassion and action, but with laws forcing homeless people to struggle and dig themselves a deeper ditch. They do not go off about healthcare this time but about the poor treatment of our nations and the world's poor people. The last segment they lighten up the show with a discussion on Hanlon’s Razor and a new study on dogs breeding the best traits from wolves.

#114: Deportation without Explanation
Feb 09 2018 83 mins  
#114: Deportation without Explanation Better late than never, Cellar Door Skeptics is back this week with a more serious episode than the previous week. This week the duo tackles Mexican American Repatriation. They talk about how America has before exported immigrants both legal and illegal without much consideration of the family. As the team learns about how history seems to repeat itself, they reflect on how Trump wants to bring back deportation without explanation. Their conversation continues with another discussion on income inequality. This time though they analyze a study that has come out about how 1% of owning more than 80% of the wealth last year. The analysis does not just cover our country but the whole world. The closing segment shares their views on the new solar tariffs that the current administration is going to allow. They talk about how the coal industry and oil industry will be able to continue their pollution tactics while harming the solar industry.

#112: Running as an Independent for Governor of Michigan
Jan 23 2018 49 mins  
#112: Running as an Independent for Governor of Michigan Ever wondered why more candidates are not challenging the status quo? Or maybe you're looking for a candidate that will create a change in corrupt government practices. This interview with Todd Schleiger is for those who are sick of the two party system and want to hear out an independent candidate that can make true change across both aisles. Todd is running for Michigan Governor this year and is running on an Independent Ticket. What truly set apart this interview was that the candidate was open, honest and willing to answer the hard questions that Tanner and his far left leaning ideologies threw at him. Get to know a candidate that is eager to make a change and upset at our current administration's lack of priority for Flint Michigan. This interview will not be dull and if we as constituents want to help tear down a two party stalemate, we recommend giving this Todd Schleiger a chance.

#111: Jeff Sessions Love of Marijuana / American Immigration History
Jan 17 2018 93 mins  
#111: Jeff Sessions Love of Marijuana / American Immigration History Cellar Door Skeptics was able to find Jeff Sessions, hiding in the closet this week, smoking a big bag of “how to screw over states rights” this week. They tackle how his memo will affect the legalized marijuana industry along with his uncompromising desire to see all marijuana removed from society so he can be the King of Pot and secretly have enough pot to smoke the rest of his life. They analyze if it is too late for Jeff and his elk along with whether even the Senate has had enough to push a legalization movement through the Federal Government. Later the duo tackles Cory Booker's epic rant on Trump’s “Shithole Nation” non-comment. Lastly they close the show out reviewing NPR’s interview on immigration, the original standards to get into America, and how America tried to doom 907 refugees trying to escape Nazi Germany to death by regretting them from coming into America. The similarities to how Americans have treated Refugees and Immigrants over the last 200 decades is astounding and the duo hope to flesh out a better way to receive those who want to shelter within America.

#110: Kicking Off 2018 In Cellar Door Skeptic's first show of the New Year, after a two week hiatus, the duo is back to talk about some weird and wild things as Johnny Carson used to say. They talk through "New Years Resolutions", Trumps Tweets and Tantrums, along with which button on which desk is the biggest. The show gets a little more serious as they review an article about how a neuroscientist discovered that he was a psychopath. The show ends with a look at whether the Republican economic plan has generated more work for the US and if Trump has actually grown jobs or are his numbers are nothing more than fake news.

#109: Gay cakes and slavery Before the holidays over take us and allow us to take a much needed break, Cellar Door Skeptics hits hard on a couple of topics that have been weighing down on them over the last couple weeks. The duo talk through a conversation that Tanner had with an online friend over whether or not the Supreme Court should rule in favor of the Baker who was sued over not serving a gay couple. They talk through the outrageous statements made in a Libertarian post which tries to equate forcing a baker to either go out of business or serve every couple equally is the same as putting people in slavery. Then Hanna brings back his infamous science educational segment talking about Gravity. The show ends with the duo looking at the how the media is handling all the sexual scandals, what the long term effects could be, and how we should continue to speak in sync with women as they continue to make their voices heard. #LGBTQWKRPINCINCINNATI #SupremeCourt #Libertarian #Gravity #Science #Podcast #MeToo #SexualHarassment Subscribe: http://www.spreaker.com/user/cellardoorskeptics Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/CellarDoorSkeptics RSS Feed: https://www.spreaker.com/user/8326690/episodes/feed iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/cellar-door-skeptics/id1044088575?mt=2&ign-mpt=uo%3D4 Website: http://cellardoorskeptics.com Stitcher: http://www.stitcher.com/podcast/cellar-door-skeptics Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/cellardoorskeptics PayPal: https://www.paypal.me/CellarDoorSkeptics Intro Music: http://aloststateofmind.com/ Links ------ https://mobile.nytimes.com/2017/11/27/opinion/gay-wedding-cake.html?rref=collection%2Fsectioncollection%2Fopinion&action=click&contentCollection=opinion®ion=stream&module=stream_unit&version=latest&contentPlacement=1&pgtype=sectionfront&_r=1&referer=http://m.facebook.com https://www.yahoo.com/news/yesterday-supreme-court-jolted-lgbtq-182824031.html https://www.facebook.com/ThePragmaticLibertarian/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rZVjKlBCvhg ------ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B4XzLDM3Py8 https://www.ligo.caltech.edu/page/gravitational-waves ------ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2017_United_States_political_sexual_scandals http://money.cnn.com/2017/11/29/media/media-men-accused-of-sexual-misconduct/index.html http://www.tennessean.com/story/news/2017/12/10/singer-katie-armiger-sued-after-speaking-sexual-harassment-country-music/913478001/

#108: Bitcoin - Catching a Falling Knife This week's episode of Cellar Door Skeptics, Tanner interviews Phil Ferguson from Polaris Financial Planning to talk about Bitcoin, Income Tax on the rich, and his book recommendations for those who want to learn more and become better financial planners. Phil owns his own successful financial planning business and we start the episode out by talking about whether bitcoin is a good investment or not. As an expert in financial planning, we wanted to pick his brain about the phenomenon of Bitcoin and if we should jump on board or hold our distance. The show also focuses on talking about some of the items that Hanna and Tanner did not cover in episode 107 with a slant on how it affects income tax from a financial planning perspective. The show ends with some solid advice for those just getting into financial planning or those whom want to take a deeper dive. #Bitcoin #PolarisFinancial #FinancialPlanning #Investments #Podcast Subscribe: http://www.spreaker.com/user/cellardoorskeptics Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/CellarDoorSkeptics RSS Feed: https://www.spreaker.com/user/8326690/episodes/feed iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/cellar-door-skeptics/id1044088575?mt=2&ign-mpt=uo%3D4 Website: http://cellardoorskeptics.com Stitcher: http://www.stitcher.com/podcast/cellar-door-skeptics Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/cellardoorskeptics PayPal: https://www.paypal.me/CellarDoorSkeptics Intro Music: http://aloststateofmind.com/ Links ------ http://polarisfinancialplanning.com/ https://www.spreaker.com/show/phil-fergusons-tracks ------ https://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2017/12/bitcoins-insane-energy-consumption-explained/ https://bitcoin.org/en/ https://www.forbes.com/sites/jasonbloomberg/2017/12/09/seven-lies-bitcoin-fans-tell-themselves-and-anyone-else-who-will-listen/#212fac03402d http://markets.businessinsider.com/currencies/news/buying-bitcoin-with-mortgages-credit-cards-2017-12-1010998104 https://www.forbes.com/sites/jasonbloomberg/2017/06/26/what-is-bitcoins-elusive-intrinsic-value/#5f6190d77194 ------ The richest man in babylon book https://www.amazon.com/Richest-Man-Babylon-George-Clason/dp/1505339111 A Random Walk Down Wall Street https://www.amazon.com/Random-Walk-Down-Wall-Street/dp/0393330338 Common Sense on Mutual Funds: Fully Updated 10th Anniversary Edition https://www.amazon.com/Common-Sense-Mutual-Funds-Anniversary/dp/0470138130/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1513042688&sr=1-1&keywords=common+sense+on+mutual+funds

Episode 106: Healthcare Death by Graduate Taxes

This week Chris and Chris combat two of life’s inevitabilities, death and taxes. As a human rights catastrophe in the making, the GOP House and Senate bills, steamrolls its way through the legislative branch the casualties are piling up. The latest victims are the researchers and graduate students all over the country who depend on universities waving the cost of tuition in return for research and teaching undergraduate classes. The new plan would double, triple, or even quadruple their taxes and further drive the income inequality wedge into the intellectual capital of the United States. Also, Chris Hanna finally delivers on the last chapter of his How, What, and Why of the controversial gene editing tool CRISPR Cas 9 while Chris Tanner shifts the gun control conversation into overdrive concentrating on the new Michigan plan to allow guns into previously gun free zones. They close on the most financially intense analysis of the American healthcare system Cellar Door Skeptics has ever seen. #Healthcare #TaxPlan #GOP #GunControl #CRISPR #MassShooting Subscribe: http://www.spreaker.com/user/cellardoorskeptics Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/CellarDoorSkeptics RSS Feed: https://www.spreaker.com/user/8326690/episodes/feed iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/cellar-door-skeptics/id1044088575?mt=2&ign-mpt=uo%3D4 Website: http://cellardoorskeptics.com Stitcher: http://www.stitcher.com/podcast/cellar-door-skeptics Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/cellardoorskeptics PayPal: https://www.paypal.me/CellarDoorSkeptics Intro Music: http://aloststateofmind.com/ Links ------ https://www.npr.org/2017/11/14/563879136/house-gop-tax-plan-would-hit-grad-students-with-massive-tax-hike https://www.npr.org/sections/ed/2017/11/14/563130814/heres-how-the-new-tax-plan-could-hurt-graduate-students https://www.nytimes.com/2017/11/16/opinion/house-tax-bill-graduate-students.html https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK83124/ ------ Joe Rogan interview with Lawrence Krauss https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CqOeK0j3i2c The Ethics of Human Gene Editing Unnatural Selection from VICE Arthur L Caplan PH.D.

#103: Domestic Violence and Economics of Consent Cellar Door Skeptics delivers again with another refined episode. The duo starts by talking about the Catalonian Nationalist issue as many catalan nationalists have fled. They talk about the the uprising and look at if it is a product of revolution or if they are just being selfish. The show takes a more serious turn as they talk with Mel Rice about how she left her domestic violence situation. Her story is harrowing and worth the listen as she bares her heart to Tanner. The show closes out with a discussion with Stephanie Zvan about the economics of consent. They seek input as they discuss pay inequality amongst women and how industries can make women feel insecure with the majority of power in the hands of men. 1-800-799-SAFE (7233) #DomesticViolence #MeToo #Economics #Catalonia #PayInequality Subscribe: http://www.spreaker.com/user/cellardoorskeptics Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/CellarDoorSkeptics RSS Feed: https://www.spreaker.com/user/8326690/episodes/feed iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/cellar-door-skeptics/id1044088575?mt=2&ign-mpt=uo%3D4 Website: http://cellardoorskeptics.com Stitcher: http://www.stitcher.com/podcast/cellar-door-skeptics Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/cellardoorskeptics PayPal: https://www.paypal.me/CellarDoorSkeptics Intro Music: http://aloststateofmind.com/ ------ https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/catalonias-deposed-leader-vows-to-continue-independence-fight-from-outside-spain/2017/10/31/96435d46-bdbd-11e7-9294-705f80164f6e_story.html?utm_term=.593f0fdde925 http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-41877858 http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/0/does-catalonia-want-independence-spain/ ------ http://nomore.org https://www.nrcdv.org/ http://Thehotline.org http://domesticshelters.org ------ https://www.facebook.com/SDVSSN/ https://nrcdv.org/dvam/DVAM-history http://www.thehotline.org/is-this-abuse/abuse-defined/ https://qz.com/980766/the-truth-about-false-rape-accusations/ http://www.npr.org/2017/10/21/558623534/iowa-tries-a-new-domestic-violence-intervention-mindfulness ------ https://www.theatlantic.com/entertainment/archive/2017/10/harvey-weinstein-and-the-economics-of-consent/543618/ https://the-orbit.net/ https://the-orbit.net/almostdiamonds/ http://atheisttalk.libsyn.com/ http://mnatheists.org/

#101: Christopher Columbus: The First Terrorist in America
Oct 25 2017 93 mins  
Episode 101: Christopher Columbus - First Terrorist in America After a two week recharging period Chris and Chris are back in the Cellar Door Skeptics command center. Starting year three with the sinking of Christopher Columbus; there is really nothing else to do with that dark smear in American history. The new and improved format has two special personal and research segments this week. Chris Hanna dove Off the Deep End with his new episodic deep dive research segment on CRISPR and Chris Tanner ruminated on secular parenting featuring a remembered, heartfelt conversation with his daughter. And ending with CHIP and CHIPRA, Chris and Chris bashed and kicked their way through the absolute absurdity of Republicans throwing millions of poor and minority children off their healthcare plans.

Sep 27 2017 33 mins  
#14: Through the attic window - Kneeling for Injustice Cellar Door Skeptics brings another opinion episode discussing issues close to home. This episode the duo look at the somehow controversial topic of silent protest by NFL players. It feels this country either does not understand how peaceful protests work or they are just so diluted with their privilege that they don't want to understand the plight of other Americans. This episode looks at what kneeling does as a protest, Trumps statements and how we can continue to see him as a white nationalist supporter, and why it feels that our society wants to continue to marginalize minorities and tell them to be quiet, even though they are a vital part of the success of the nation.

Sep 20 2017 92 mins  
#99: Should You Fear Roko’s Basilisk? “Before you die, you see Roko’s Basilisk. It's like the videotape in The Ring.” Can Artificial Intelligence predict if people helped or tried to stop it from becoming sentient? This episode Cellar Door Skeptics tackle all angles of Rosko’s Basilisk Theory and what it means for AI and our future. They talk about their perceived notions on whether AI could predict humans who have not helped it become sentient. This dilemma falls in line with Pascal's Wager and the team takes a stance where this should be a concern or if we can feel comfortable dismissing this as a crazy conspiracy. Follow the episode as it delves into AI philosophy and the team takes rabbit hole after rabbit hole toward the reality that we live in. Will you take the Red Pill or the Blue Pill or should you just flush the pills and succumb to logic? #RokosBasilisk #ArtificialIntelligence #LessWrong #Philosophy #PascalsWager Subscribe: http://www.spreaker.com/user/cellardoorskeptics Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/CellarDoorSkeptics RSS Feed: https://www.spreaker.com/user/8326690/episodes/feed iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/cellar-door-skeptics/id1044088575?mt=2&ign-mpt=uo%3D4 Website: http://cellardoorskeptics.com Stitcher: http://www.stitcher.com/podcast/cellar-door-skeptics Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/cellardoorskeptics PayPal: https://www.paypal.me/CellarDoorSkeptics Intro Music: http://aloststateofmind.com/ Links ------ http://lesswrong.com/ https://wiki.lesswrong.com/wiki/Roko%27s_basilisk http://www.slate.com/articles/technology/bitwise/2014/07/roko_s_basilisk_the_most_terrifying_thought_experiment_of_all_time.html http://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Roko's_basilisk

#98: Is Artificial Intelligence predicting our sexuality? Ever wondered if Cellar Door Skeptics talked about AI? Well this episode the duo take on an economist article that examines AI ability to predict your sexuality. That is right folks, this article talks about a soon to be published journal that use already existing methods to try and determine what sexuality you are. Also on the agenda for this episode is a discussion the future of evolution an article NPR covered about a new book called "Improbable Destinies: Fate, Chance, And The Future Of Evolution” by Biologist Jonathan Losos professor at Harvard. They continue the journey talking about the new movie IT and if IT lived up to the standards of the book and the old movie. The episode closes out looking at a study about the 2015 Reddit ban on some of the most hateful subreddits on their website.

#97: Web of Resistance Cellar Door Skeptics is back with a few changes as they are now recording remotely but with better equipment. This episode will focus on the discussion about protests and which is the better protest method or if there is even one protest method that can be used. They look at the resistance, read scientific articles, and spend two segments fleshing out their thoughts on protests and demonstrations. Later they dive into the discussion about nanomachines and how they can affect cancer. The duo looks at two articles that are both linked through the scientific article that studies the use of nanomachine technology to kill off cancer cells and what this means for the future of humanity. The show closes out by discussing if there is a link between climate change, increasing temperatures in the world, and hurricanes. Surprisingly the science shows one thing, but the team discusses what it means and where the correlations lay. #Hurricane #Protest #Resist #NanoMachines #ClimateChange Subscribe: http://www.spreaker.com/user/cellardoorskeptics Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/CellarDoorSkeptics RSS Feed: https://www.spreaker.com/user/8326690/episodes/feed iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/cellar-door-skeptics/id1044088575?mt=2&ign-mpt=uo%3D4 Website: http://cellardoorskeptics.com Stitcher: http://www.stitcher.com/podcast/cellar-door-skeptics Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/cellardoorskeptics PayPal: https://www.paypal.me/CellarDoorSkeptics Intro Music: http://aloststateofmind.com/ Links ------ https://www.theatlantic.com/science/archive/2017/02/the-psychology-of-effective-protest/517749 https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/aeabb8/why-protests-work https://www.theatlantic.com/international/archive/2014/04/why-street-protests-dont-work/360264 http://nymag.com/scienceofus/2017/03/insights-about-successful-protest-movements.html ------ http://www.telegraph.co.uk/science/2016/05/04/british-scientists-create-worlds-tiniest-engine---a-million-time/ http://www.telegraph.co.uk/science/2017/08/30/nanomachines-drill-cancer-cells-killing-just-60-seconds-developed/ http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/v548/n7669/full/nature23657.html?foxtrotcallback=true https://www.nature.com/articles/nature23657.epdf?referrer_access_token=vzEIyUVhDRjRWn8BohHkNdRgN0jAjWel9jnR3ZoTv0MeMYHo5HUXRfUjFJlK-ZTj_YSHmwG55E5Z__T6p6luwWuUxMv7uOIeKcNFVRu8MnC3FzS-yc6Nu9fBbFfpDw49mm2WvVEmTpdeB0EqE79Q-VSZrPEH9g0icEbfvyzUQTrn4hG1Ke4QxXZb5DEMzZ0byhlIAPmqH56Wc1EYQoQ9Gin3nI7TkgZaH5v_4b1eAlWYKu2oz_ygMgw1T6bSh5GtA_lXUWfjr69Pjz7qQU3wuhfcQNAELq5YU97N2pocWFU%3D&tracking_referrer=www.telegraph.co.uk ------ https://weather.com/science/environment/news/climate-change-study-changing-intensity-number-hurricanes http://www.aoml.noaa.gov/hrd/tcfaq/E11.html https://www.theatlantic.com/science/archive/2017/08/did-climate-change-intensify-hurricane-harvey/538158/ https://www.gfdl.noaa.gov/global-warming-and-hurricanes/

Episode 96: Michigan Fails to Pardon Dispensaries and Other Stories Cellar Door Skeptics is back at it again examining some more articles that will leave you questioning humanity. This week the duo takes the plunge and attacks the infamous Michigan Governor Dick and his ragtime Medical Marijuana Board. This time the state is “confused” on what to do with dispensaries and they are shutting them down and leaving people in the lurches and under criminal investigation. The show continues by talking about a scientific article that has revealed some dirty laundry about “Big Oil”. The team examines the soiled remains of how Oil companies purposely mislead people by claiming Climate Change is not real. The show ends with a frank discussion on Trump’s pardon of Sheriff Joe Arpaio and how this will affect the nation moving forward. #MedicalMarijuana #ClimateChange #BigOil #JoeArpaio #Pardon Subscribe: http://www.spreaker.com/user/cellardoorskeptics Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/CellarDoorSkeptics RSS Feed: https://www.spreaker.com/user/8326690/episodes/feed iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/cellar-door-skeptics/id1044088575?mt=2&ign-mpt=uo%3D4 Website: http://cellardoorskeptics.com Stitcher: http://www.stitcher.com/podcast/cellar-door-skeptics Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/cellardoorskeptics PayPal: https://www.paypal.me/CellarDoorSkeptics Intro Music: http://aloststateofmind.com/ Links ------ http://www.freep.com/story/news/politics/2017/08/21/medical-marijuana-shut-down-dispensaries/585755001/ http://www.mlive.com/news/index.ssf/2017/08/state_medical_marijuana_board.html ------ http://iopscience.iop.org/article/10.1088/1748-9326/aa815f?fromSearchPage=true http://corporate.exxonmobil.com/en/company/news-and-updates/news-releases-and-alerts/statement-on-study https://histsci.fas.harvard.edu/people/geoffrey-supran ------ https://mobile.nytimes.com/2017/08/28/us/politics/right-left-opinions-trump-pardon-joe-arpaio.html?referer=https://www.google.com/ http://time.com/4919350/joe-arpaio-donald-trump-pardon-defense/ https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/white-house/trump-arpaio-pardon-was-early-term-not-record-n796606 https://www.nytimes.com/2017/08/27/us/joe-arpaio-sheriff-pardon.html?mcubz=0

#95: The Secret Service Go Broke / Breast Milk Research / Bee Mathematicians 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 concept of zero. #ZeroConcept #BeeMath #SecretService #BudgetDeficit #SunBlind #BreastFeeding #Science Subscribe: http://www.spreaker.com/user/cellardoorskeptics Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/CellarDoorSkeptics RSS Feed: https://www.spreaker.com/user/8326690/episodes/feed iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/cellar-door-skeptics/id1044088575?mt=2&ign-mpt=uo%3D4 Website: http://cellardoorskeptics.com Stitcher: http://www.stitcher.com/podcast/cellar-door-skeptics Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/cellardoorskeptics PayPal: https://www.paypal.me/CellarDoorSkeptics Intro Music: http://aloststateofmind.com/ Links ------ http://www.politico.com/story/2016/12/secret-service-faces-massive-bill-for-protecting-trump-232153 https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/secret-service-asked-for-60-million-extra-for-trump-era-travel-and-protection-documents-show/2017/03/22/0967e7b6-0a85-11e7-a15f-a58d4a988474_story.html?tid=ss_tw&utm_term=.82ef8fa63afd https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/secret-service-says-it-will-run-out-of-money-to-protect-trump-and-his-family-sept-30/2017/08/21/93d30132-868c-11e7-961d-2f373b3977ee_story.html?utm_term=.cc6efd948580 https://www.secretservice.gov/press/reports/ https://www.whitehouse.gov/sites/whitehouse.gov/files/omb/budget/fy2018/dhs.pdf https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KE1cUAnGwbM ------ https://www.reddit.com/r/science/comments/6v2a9o/sugars_in_human_mothers_milk_are_nontoxic/?st=J6MXWYAU&sh=3f749ce7 https://news.vanderbilt.edu/2017/08/20/sugars-mothers-milk-antibacterial-agents/ http://pubs.acs.org/doi/abs/10.1021/acsinfecdis.7b00064 https://youtu.be/eMEvacLuxq0 ------ https://www.newscientist.com/article/2142884-bees-are-first-insects-shown-to-understand-the-concept-of-zero/?utm_campaign=Echobox&utm_medium=Social&utm_source=Twitter#link_time=1502270352 https://betterexplained.com/articles/thinking-about-zero/ https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/history-of-zero/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Y7gAzTMdMA

#92: Over Before it Began: the iGen Teen Social Mass Extinction 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. #iGen #JohnOliver #LSD #Psychedelics #Podcast #RobertMurray #SmartPhones Subscribe: http://www.spreaker.com/user/cellardoorskeptics Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/CellarDoorSkeptics RSS Feed: https://www.spreaker.com/user/8326690/episodes/feed iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/cellar-door-skeptics/id1044088575?mt=2&ign-mpt=uo%3D4 Website: http://cellardoorskeptics.com Stitcher: http://www.stitcher.com/podcast/cellar-door-skeptics Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/cellardoorskeptics PayPal: https://www.paypal.me/CellarDoorSkeptics Intro Music: http://aloststateofmind.com/ Links ------ http://www.salon.com/2017/08/02/west-virginia-aclu-amicus-brief-john-oliver-robert-murray http://money.cnn.com/2017/06/22/media/john-oliver-coal-king-murray-lawsuit/index.html https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/3911409-Wvnd-19902323086.html https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2017/06/22/john-oliver-a-giant-squirrel-and-a-defamation-lawsuit-by-a-coal-industry-titan/?utm_term=.1220e90bbbd5 http://www.slate.com/blogs/browbeat/2017/08/02/the_latest_brief_in_the_john_oliver_lawsuit_is_hilarious.html ------ https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2017/09/has-the-smartphone-destroyed-a-generation/534198/ https://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ISBN=1501151983/theatla05-20/ http://www.jeantwenge.com/ http://pediatrics.aappublications.org/content/early/2016/11/10/peds.2016-1878 ------ https://www.inverse.com/article/34827-amanda-feilding-james-fadiman-lsd-microdosing-smarter http://beckleyfoundation.org/amanda-feilding/ http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/psychedelic-microdosing-research_us_569525afe4b09dbb4bac9db8 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9l30ES4wbmE https://www.fundamental.nyc/

This episode focuses on Nevada’s bill to expand Medicaid even after the federal government would repeal it. They look at the bill and determine if the bill passing would be of benefit or hindrance based on the way it is written. They also examine Nevada’s governor's opinion and if he could veto the bill. Single payer healthcare would be a benefit for the residence, but we will see if the GOP try to foil another attempt at bringing humanism to the masses. #SinglePayer #HealthCare #Nevada #GovernorSandoval #Medicaid Subscribe: http://www.spreaker.com/user/cellardoorskeptics Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/CellarDoorSkeptics RSS Feed: https://www.spreaker.com/user/8326690/episodes/feed iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/cellar-door-skeptics/id1044088575?mt=2&ign-mpt=uo%3D4 Website: http://cellardoorskeptics.com Stitcher: http://www.stitcher.com/podcast/cellar-door-skeptics Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/cellardoorskeptics PayPal: https://www.paypal.me/CellarDoorSkeptics Intro Music: http://aloststateofmind.com/ Link ------ http://money.cnn.com/2017/06/18/news/economy/nevada-governor-sandoval-vetoes-medicaid-for-all/index.html https://www.leg.state.nv.us/Session/79th2017/Bills/AB/AB374_EN.pdf http://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2017/06/13/532783189/nevada-may-become-first-state-to-offer-medicaid-to-all-regardless-of-income

#87: Muslim Travel Ban and An Angry Atheist On this holiday weekend, Cellar Door Skeptics pushes out the episode early in celebration of the last Fourth of July under Donald Trump. Today the episode will discuss the supreme courts decision to allow for some of the travel ban to go into effect. The duo look at the Scotus opinion from the judges and analyze if the courts have over stepped their boundaries again. Cellar Door Skeptics then brought back Matt Chapman to talk about the angry atheist trope. They decided it would be a good segment to do given the holiday season. Many people have to suffer through family functions and get accused of being angry at religion. And after last weeks scathing episode on the latest Scotus downfall allowing for a private school to get government funds for their religious school, they had to address why they were not angry at Christians but at a failure of government. #MuslimBan #AngryAtheist #Scotus #Christian #DonaldTrump #IndependenceDay #4thofJuly Subscribe: http://www.spreaker.com/user/cellardoorskeptics Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/CellarDoorSkeptics RSS Feed: https://www.spreaker.com/user/8326690/episodes/feed iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/cellar-door-skeptics/id1044088575?mt=2&ign-mpt=uo%3D4 Website: http://cellardoorskeptics.com Stitcher: http://www.stitcher.com/podcast/cellar-door-skeptics Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/cellardoorskeptics PayPal: https://www.paypal.me/CellarDoorSkeptics Intro Music: http://aloststateofmind.com/ Links ------ http://www.cnn.com/2017/06/26/politics/travel-ban-supreme-court/index.html https://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/16pdf/16-1436_l6hc.pdf http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/jurisprudence/2017/06/how_the_supreme_court_paved_the_way_for_trump_s_muslim_ban.html http://www.scotusblog.com/2017/06/justices-agree-weigh-travel-ban-allow-parts-go-effect/ ------ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fundamental_attribution_error http://gretachristina.typepad.com/greta_christinas_weblog/2007/10/atheists-and-an.html http://educateinspirechange.org/spirituality/10-signs-personality-intimidating-others-never-tolerate-7/ ------ https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/matt2000/starship-awesome-3000 https://www.starshipawesome.com

This episode the crew will tackle Jane Sander’s FBI investigation, the allegations against her, and if there is any teeth behind what Donald Trump’s Vermont Campaign Chairman claims. Given their desire to report the truth coupled with their love of all things Sanders, they take a step back and remove their biases to talk about the truth behind the allegations. Later the duo will talk about a recent study on Raven’s memory and cognitive abilities. The research is interesting and they hope to see if there is any more light shed on evolutionary cognition. The episode will end with a bang, as Chris Squared jump over Scotus decision to allow for funding of a church school playground. They will read through the decision along with opinion articles from NPR and FFRF. #FFRF #JaneSanders #Cognition #ChurchStateSeparation #FFRF #Voucher #SchoolofChoice Subscribe: http://www.spreaker.com/user/cellardoorskeptics Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/CellarDoorSkeptics RSS Feed: https://www.spreaker.com/user/8326690/episodes/feed iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/cellar-door-skeptics/id1044088575?mt=2&ign-mpt=uo%3D4 Website: http://cellardoorskeptics.com Stitcher: http://www.stitcher.com/podcast/cellar-door-skeptics Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/cellardoorskeptics PayPal: https://www.paypal.me/CellarDoorSkeptics Intro Music: http://aloststateofmind.com/ Links ------ http://www.cbsnews.com/news/bernie-and-jane-sanders-under-fbi-investigation-for-bank-fraud-hire-lawyers/?ftag=CNM-00-10aab7e&linkId=39061383 https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/18/1344 http://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2017/06/22/bernie-sanders-jane-sanders-lawyer-bank-fraud-investigation-burlington-college-215297 https://assets.documentcloud.org/documents/2680892/LTR-to-USATTY-and-FDIC-IG-Re-Apparent-Fraud-Sen.pdf http://gregguma.blogspot.com/2016/05/campus-paradise-lost-fall-of-burlington.html?m=1 ------ http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0003347217301161 https://phys.org/news/2017-06-ravens-people-months.html http://news.nationalgeographic.com/2017/06/ravens-memory-unfair-trade/ ------ https://ffrf.org/news/news-releases/item/29785-ffrf-blasts-supreme-court-s-trinity-lutheran-decision http://www.npr.org/2017/06/26/534084013/supreme-court-rules-religious-school-can-use-taxpayer-funds-for-playground https://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/16pdf/15-577_khlp.pdf

#85: Empty Handed for God - The Deconversion to Atheism If you remember Tanner mentioned that he was in a Christian Ska Band in high school. And he left the band due to theological difference. Well now years later, and no we won't say how many years, but 17 years later he reunites with his old friend and lead singer of defunct band Empty Hand. They reminisce along with talking about both their journey out of Christianity into Atheism. Both of them have had different journeys but both have come to the same place.

Cellar Door Skeptics presents their opinion series tackling different view points the hosts only dare to show those willing to join in and listen. Through the Attic Window is a classically elegant, simple, and rare emotional experience about the complex nature of this world. This episode we will be talking about how much of your cars are made in america. We tackle our opinions on whether or not these cars are made here or if most of these cars are imports. And we take a bigger look at whether or not other countries are profitting off of our dollars or if this is just the right trying to push us to believe that companies started in america are just the nationalist tint that blinds everyone. Join us for another opinionated episode from the group that brought you Cellar Door Skeptics. #MadeInAmerica #MAGA #BailOut #Automotive #Manufacturing Subscribe: http://www.spreaker.com/user/cellardoorskeptics Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/CellarDoorSkeptics RSS Feed: https://www.spreaker.com/user/8326690/episodes/feed iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/cellar-door-skeptics/id1044088575?mt=2&ign-mpt=uo%3D4 Website: http://cellardoorskeptics.com Stitcher: http://www.stitcher.com/podcast/cellar-door-skeptics Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/cellardoorskeptics PayPal: https://www.paypal.me/CellarDoorSkeptics Intro Music: http://aloststateofmind.com/ Link ------ http://online.wsj.com/mdc/public/page/2_3022-autosales.html https://www.cars.com/articles/the-2016-carscom-american-made-index-1420684865874/ http://www.freep.com/story/money/cars/chrysler/2016/01/05/fca-sales-rose-13-2015-record-year-autos/78268882/ https://www.glassdoor.com/Hourly-Pay/Toyota-North-America-Assembly-Line-Worker-Hourly-Pay-E3544_D_KO21,41.htm

#84: Opening Arguments, Trump Impeachment, and Moral Decision Making Cellar Door Skeptics is back this week with an expert laiden show. The show begins talking with Andrew Torrez Co Host and Legal Expert of the Open Arguments Podcast. We sit down with him and talk about the origins of the podcast, their special nitch in law based podcasting, and their grueling schedule. We also will talk with him about Presidential Impeachment and if we are anywhere near impeachment or if it is just a pie in the sky hope of the left. The second segment of the show will feature Pyschologist David Teachout from Humanity’s Values Podcast and Life Weavings LLC. This segment will tackle the article Christopher mentioned three episodes ago about how moral decision making could be affected by a damaged brain. Christopher and David will look at the scientific article and see if it is too much suplosition or if the study can be used as a valid way to examine how morals can be formed. #OpeningArguments #Impeachment #Morals #Psychology #DonaldTrump #Podcast Subscribe: http://www.spreaker.com/user/cellardoorskeptics Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/CellarDoorSkeptics RSS Feed: https://www.spreaker.com/user/8326690/episodes/feed iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/cellar-door-skeptics/id1044088575?mt=2&ign-mpt=uo%3D4 Website: http://cellardoorskeptics.com Stitcher: http://www.stitcher.com/podcast/cellar-door-skeptics Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/cellardoorskeptics PayPal: https://www.paypal.me/CellarDoorSkeptics Intro Music: http://aloststateofmind.com/ Links ------ http://openargs.com/ https://www.patreon.com/law https://www.facebook.com/openargs/ @Openargs http://patorrez.com/ ------ http://www.lifeweavings.org/humanitys-values-podcast/ https://www.facebook.com/lifeweavingsllc https://www.lifeweavings.org/ ------ http://www.jneurosci.org/content/36/48/12157 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ventromedial_prefrontal_cortex https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hippocampus https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Utilitarianism https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4259516/ http://www.philosophybasics.com/branch_deontology.html

#82: School's Out Forever Cellar Door Skeptics Podcast is back this week to help bring some insight into the Trump Education Budget. Both Chris’ felt the Education Side of the Budget deserved a deeper dive. The episode would not be complete without a look at how Betsy Devos wants to lower our standing in education in comparison to other industrialized nations in the world. Second they will look at a Christian Blog a relative of Christopher’s shared about Bad Arguments Atheist make. The duo looks to see if any of these arguments are worth a grain of salt. The show will conclude with a descent into the potential dual morality of the brain. A scientific study published last year from Journal of Neuroscience completes a study on patients that have had brain damage and how they would respond to moral situations compared to those that do not. #BetsyDevos #Education #FederalBudget #DualBrain #StuffAtheistSay #Science Subscribe: http://www.spreaker.com/user/cellardoorskeptics Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/CellarDoorSkeptics RSS Feed: https://www.spreaker.com/user/8326690/episodes/feed iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/cellar-door-skeptics/id1044088575?mt=2&ign-mpt=uo%3D4 Website: http://cellardoorskeptics.com Stitcher: http://www.stitcher.com/podcast/cellar-door-skeptics Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/cellardoorskeptics PayPal: https://www.paypal.me/CellarDoorSkeptics Intro Music: http://aloststateofmind.com/ Links ------ https://www2.ed.gov/about/overview/budget/budget17/summary/17summary.pdf https://www2.ed.gov/about/reports/annual/2016report/index.html http://www.npr.org/sections/ed/2017/05/20/528464301/trump-gives-commencement-address-leaked-education-budget-has-big-cuts https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/education/trumps-first-full-education-budget-deep-cuts-to-public-school-programs-in-pursuit-of-school-choice/2017/05/17/2a25a2cc-3a41-11e7-8854-21f359183e8c_story.html?utm_term=.0f0ab8eb07a0 http://www.npr.org/sections/ed/2017/03/16/520261978/trumps-budget-blueprint-pinches-pennies-for-education https://www.whitehouse.gov/sites/whitehouse.gov/files/omb/budget/fy2018/2018_blueprint.pdf ------ http://freethinkingministries.com/stuff-atheists-say-youre-almost-an-atheist/ http://freethinkingministries.com/stuff-atheists-say-believing-in-god-is-like-believing-in-santa-2/ http://freethinkingministries.com/stuff-atheists-say-a-crutch-a-fallacy-and-a-magical-being/ http://freethinkingministries.com/stuff-atheists-say-atheism-is-a-lack-of-belief/ http://freethinkingministries.com/stuff-atheists-say-extraordinary-claims-require-extraordinary-evidence/ ------ http://www.jneurosci.org/content/36/48/12157 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ventromedial_prefrontal_cortex https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hippocampus https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Utilitarianism https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4259516/ http://www.philosophybasics.com/branch_deontology.html

#74: Trumpcare VS American Healthcare As the GOP failed to gain the votes needed to secure a repeal for the ACA, Cellar Door Skeptics Podcast will analyze the plan proposed along with the campaign promises that the Donald made during his campaign trail. Chris and Chris will then compare the difference between Trumpcare and Obamacare to see what will change and how it will affect Americans. With all that analysis done, the duo will move on to how American Healthcare compares with other similar nations whom have universal healthcare.

#72: Rambling Rant Tangent If you thought that Cellar Door Skeptics had repressed their passion, look no farther than this episode. Chris Squared tackle several articles tonight and not just with facts, but with passion. First they rant about the proposed DHS rules that parents will be separated from their children if they enter the US undocumented. Next they tackle the Tucker vs Bill Nye discussion on climate change and they find the facts to back up Bill Nye’s claims. Later they will examine an article that demonstrates how many lives were saved through stem cell research and vaccines. In the epic conclusion, the duo will re-examine if the DNC is committed to change or if they want to hold fast to the same old Clinton era presidential candidate in 4 years. #Rant #immigration #climatechange #stemcell #DNC #BernieSanders Subscribe: http://www.spreaker.com/user/cellardoorskeptics Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/CellarDoorSkeptics RSS Feed: https://www.spreaker.com/user/8326690/episodes/feed iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/cellar-door-skeptics/id1044088575?mt=2&ign-mpt=uo%3D4 Website: http://cellardoorskeptics.com Stitcher: http://www.stitcher.com/podcast/cellar-door-skeptics Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/cellardoorskeptics Intro Music: http://aloststateofmind.com/ Links ------ http://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-immigration-children-idUSKBN16A2ES https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2017/03/07/dhs-is-considering-separating-mothers-and-children-who-cross-the-border-illegally/?utm_term=.e30118264986 ------ https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/todays-climate-change-proves-much-faster-than-changes-in-past-65-million-years/ https://skepticalscience.com/climate-change-little-ice-age-medieval-warm-period.htm http://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/Features/GlobalWarming/page3.php https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LKMxmYcfw8Q ------ https://news.uic.edu/ten-million-lives-saved-by-1962-breakthrough-study-says https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WI-38 http://www.aimspress.com/article/10.3934/publichealth.2017.2.127/fulltext.html ------ http://progressivearmy.com/2017/02/28/dnc-elected-zero-representatives-from-sanders-wing/ http://www.cnn.com/2017/02/25/politics/dnc-chair-vote-progressives-angry-ellison-perez/ http://observer.com/2016/12/sanders-supporters-withhold-dnc-donations-unless-ellison-is-elected/

#64: Cellar Door Spacemen of Astronomy On Tonight’s episode of Cellar Door Skeptics, we take another look at Dan Batcheldor book “Astronomy Saves the World” while discussing some of Dan’s most recent projects he is working on. If the word astronomy and PhD did not strike your fancy, we will travel back in time to look at the myth of whether or not sugar makes kids hyper. Hanna then will take the show off the rails by proposing that Humans can run faster than Animals. And to cap off this science extravaganza, we will tackle NIMBY: The Myth of a Free Utopia. So sit back, relax, and let this episode warm your brain while feeding educational desires. #Science #Astronomy #NIMBY #Evolution #ASTWorld #Sugar Subscribe: http://www.spreaker.com/user/cellardoorskeptics Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/CellarDoorSkeptics RSS Feed: https://www.spreaker.com/user/8326690/episodes/feed iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/cellar-door-skeptics/id1044088575?mt=2&ign-mpt=uo%3D4 Website: http://cellardoorskeptics.com Stitcher: http://www.stitcher.com/podcast/cellar-door-skeptics Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/cellardoorskeptics Intro Music: http://aloststateofmind.com/ Links ------ http://www.spreaker.com/user/cellardoorskeptics/astronomy-saves-the-world http://danielbatcheldor.com/ https://www.amazon.com/Astronomy-Saves-World-Exploration-Education/dp/0997247509 https://spacewalkpublishing.itch.io/astronomy-saves-the-world http://www.fit.edu/faculty/profiles/profile.php?value=553 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jITn5QNwKSc&t=89s ------ http://www.livescience.com/55754-does-sugar-make-kids-hyper.html http://www.yalescientific.org/2010/09/mythbusters-does-sugar-really-make-children-hyper/ ------ https://dash.harvard.edu/handle/1/3716644 http://news.harvard.edu/gazette/story/2007/04/humans-hot-sweaty-natural-born-runners/ http://news.bitofnews.com/humans-king-of-running-animal-kingdom/ ------ http://lgbtweekly.com/2016/09/01/the-hypocrisy-of-issas-nimby-panel/ http://www.thenewstribune.com/opinion/article97477827.html http://www.tribstar.com/news/local_news/wind-farm-foe-rezones-to-fight-back/article_59890b56-fdde-5555-94cf-a0a36838cdfb.html

#63: Russians Be A Hackin There has been a lot of accusations and discussions on whether or not the Russians helped Donald Trump win the election. This episode we will dedicate the first hour to discussing the evidence for and against this notion along with a discussion on how this actually affected the election. During the second hour of the show, Cellar Door Skeptics cover whether or not the smoking ban has been beneficial to your health along with how it affects your freedoms.

#62: Education is Not For Sale It is with heavy hearts we open the show with our tribute to Carrie Fisher, a feminist, entrepreneur, author, actor and all around of amazing person. She was an inspiration and humble human being. As the show continues, we cover Charter Schools and Betsy Devos in a more indepth look. After that we have an exclusive interview with artist and political activist, Travis Civic Rybarski, out of Washington State who inspires youth to become more active in their destinies and communities. Our science segment this week takes on a humor with an analyzation of why humans no longer have a “penis bone”. The show closes out with a discussion about if the GOP, after holding a majority in all areas of federal government, is helping Flint Michigan out or hindering them. #FlintWaterCrisis #GOP #CarrieFisher #StarWars #CharterSchool #PenisBone #YouthSound Subscribe: http://www.spreaker.com/user/cellardoorskeptics Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/CellarDoorSkeptics RSS Feed: https://www.spreaker.com/user/8326690/episodes/feed iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/cellar-door-skeptics/id1044088575?mt=2&ign-mpt=uo%3D4 Website: http://cellardoorskeptics.com Stitcher: http://www.stitcher.com/podcast/cellar-door-skeptics Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/cellardoorskeptics Intro Music: http://aloststateofmind.com/ Links ------- http://www.commondreams.org/news/2016/12/14/sanders-and-dems-demand-betsy-devos-pay-53-million-fine-campaign-finance-violations https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=l_htSPGAY7I http://www.slate.com/blogs/schooled/2015/12/17/for_profit_charter_schools_are_failing_and_fading_here_s_why.html http://www.slate.com/blogs/schooled/2016/06/21/sherrod_brown_wants_more_federal_oversight_of_ohio_charter_schools.html http://www.dailykos.com/story/2014/10/2/1333858/-Charter-school-fraud-has-cost-Pennsylvania-at-least-30-million ------- https://civicwashington.bandcamp.com/merch/civic-upside-ep-physical https://www.facebook.com/civicofficial http://www.tri-cityherald.com/entertainment/arts-culture/article122563709.html https://www.facebook.com/youthsoundwa http://youthsound.org/ @CivicWashington ------- https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/why-humans-have-no-penis-bone/?WT.mc_id=SA_TW_EVO_NEWS https://theconversation.com/how-penis-bones-help-primates-win-the-mating-game-and-why-humans-might-have-lost-theirs-70312 http://rspb.royalsocietypublishing.org/content/283/1844/20161736 ------- http://www.salon.com/2016/12/19/house-republicans-shut-down-investigation-into-flint-water-crisis-blame-epa-instead/ http://www.cnn.com/2016/12/20/health/flint-water-crisis-four-more-charged/index.html

Nov 23 2016 137 mins  
Episode 58: Biskeptical Seeds If you feared we would play out the Trump Card too quickly, well we took a break from analyzing his “no nonsense” campaign and rise to office. Tonight we will talk with our friends from the Bi-Skeptical Podcast, Trav and Morgan, and dive into how their show is unique and worth everyone time to check out. We will follow up our interview with a well needed dose of #Science looking at an article about tiny organisms and how they could reveal how animals evolved. The duo will discuss an article/video about Muslim Celebs Explain Why the Religion Can’t Be Reduced To Stereotypes. Later we will analyze a book Christopher read called Mr Mercedes by Stephen King. He drew a parallel between the contents of the book as the hero hacks and violates laws to save lives in much the same way wikileaks displays content that is from illegal sources.

#21: International Women's Day / Michigan Vote
Mar 09 2016 92 mins  
The excitement is intense this week as we return from a week hiatus into the midst of the Michigan Primaries and International Women's Day! We recently experienced a Bernie Sanders rally in the Grand Rapids Michigan and discussed that along with the primaries first, then Christopher Tanner delivered an in depth look at pledging support for International Women's Day that should open all out eyes. Next Chris Hanna went full science with a segment analyzing the claim that cooking is one of the major driving forces for the evolution of humans from our ancestors. Closing out the show we dove into the murky waters of the Apple-FBI feud over privacy and hacking that will affect us all when it is fully resolved.

#20: And Then There Was Eight
Feb 24 2016 90 mins  
Chris and Christopher start this week with the heat, firing up criticisms from last weeks gun segments and cooling off with a history lesson on Asian internment camps and Mexican forced deportation. Gold digger Kanye is made fun of for a decent amount of time and then the dark head of science reared itself, to talk about the Appendix? It was cool, trust us. Next Pascal's wager was perverted with climate change and the funky logic will be published on the blog for all to critique. Finally, the show was closed out on a warm cloud of Marijuana legalization banter and a skeptical look at what the President will do to replace Antonin Scalia. This one has something for everyone.

Jan 27 2016 111 mins  
This week Chris and Christopher bring back everyone's favorite segment: "This Month on Pot" where they talk about Michigan's current legalization efforts. Then they had a few drinks while interviewing the wonderful hosts of Unbuckling the Bible Belt podcast, Sharon and Kate. After that, Chris was given the go ahead for a full on philosophical take of the fine tuning argument with the Anthropic Principle. And finally, the two hosts emptied their glasses raging against the Pope and his horrific and seemingly fatal endorsement of modern day exorcisms.

The hosts round out the show with Conway's Game of Life, a mathematical model that may have the keys to unlocking the origins of life from simple elements and molecules running solely on the rigid laws of physics. Oh and they challenge a religious blogger, stick around, this might get messy.

The Science Segment for this week looks at the current state of bees and if there really is a Beepocalypse happening. Then in a new Political Science segment Chris and Christopher talked about the historical perspective switch between the Democratic and Republican parties in the US and when it happened.

#2: Supporting The Trans Community/ The Working Poor
Oct 07 2015 129 mins  
Segments: LGBTQ Support Button: I'll Go With You - 01:00 Crazy Shit Christopher Used to Believe: 21:00 Science Segment: Homosexuality and the Brain: 33:29 Callie Gaytheist Manifesto: 56:10 The Working Poor: 1:38:05 As our journey continues, with your hosts Christopher Tanner and Chris Hanna, this episode touches on a few important topics. They transform their thoughts into this 2 hour audible delicacy that will surely tantalize your senses. We start by discussing a new website/movement called "I'll Go With You" which is a movement that allows allies to show support to those in the trans community by offering to protect them while they use the restroom. Moving on to segment number two, they tackle another crazy belief that Christopher had growing up; Karma. Discussions around his old cognitive biases could not be more delectable and surely will have you laughing. The science segment this week centers around homosexuality and the brain. Chris Hanna dishes up a segment you will be able to use in arguments against the remaining faithful who refuse to accept anything outside of their bible. The highlight of the episode though is Callie Wright from the Gaytheist Manifesto as she joins Christopher to talk about coming out trans, loosing her job, and how you can be a better ally to the trans community. And we wrap up with Christopher's rant on The Working Poor as some people on his Facebook page have suggested that those on food stamps and unemployment should have to do community service to gain eligibility. Chris Squared discuss why this is a bad idea and why focusing on this is a waste of energy, time, and money. Do not miss out on this amazing show, as we help you Prepare For the Revolution!

#1: Through The Worm Hole/Feel The Bern
Sep 30 2015 98 mins  
#1: Through The Worm Hole/Feel The Bern Ladies and gentlemen, scientists and agnostics, people of all levels of learning, the day is finally here. This is this inaugural episode of The Cellar Door Skeptics podcast; with an emphasis on finding the most truth while suppressing our own bias, as best we can, we hope to educate and inform our listeners in a fog of heavy metal background music. The show will offer a variety of topics including religion, science, politics, music reviews, cooking, and anything else that falls out of our think tank. This episode starts with an introduction to the hosts, Christopher Tanner and Chris Hanna, that covers the aspiration and plans for the show as well as the charitable efforts that will be beginning very soon. Next Chris Hanna reviews Fear Factory’s new album Genexus in what is the first of many to come, including changes in genres. Next the Chris’ talk time travel, time dilation, and if a wormhole is really the magical key to traveling through time. Following the time travel segment we dive into Christopher Tanner’s past belief with an analysis of a “Crazy Bible Verse” and then “Crasy Shit Chris Used to Believe”. We round the show out with a political segment we call “Bernie vs. the World”. Chris Hanna is a full fledged supporter who is feeling the Bern but Chris Tanner is a bit skeptical and we talk Bernie and all the dirt we could find.
