Cellar Door Skeptics #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.
