Cellar Door Skeptics #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.

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