Cellar Door Skeptics 141: Does California’s Prop 13 Smell 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.
