Cellar Door Skeptics #172: Sir Scams A lot 

CLICK IMAGE TO LISTEN TO THE SHOW!

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.
