Cellar Door Skeptics 123: Orbitcon and Secular Women Work Conventions

This episode is jam packed with amazing convention talk.

Cellar Door Skeptics hosts return from their talk at the Michigan Atheist Convention. They talk about their time there, the friendships they made, and the other AMAZING speakers. They reflect on the whole convention and what it means to them.

BUT…..

The best part of the show is when Tanner does an interview with Stephanie Zvan orchestrator of Orbitcon, an online convention that is designed to meet the needs and interests of the socially active atheist community while providing entertainment and education all from an online platform easily available to everyone.

They also talk about the future conference Secular Women Work, what it means to the community and how they are preparing this year to have even more workshops to inspire you to be better activists. This conference is exciting because it talks about women as activists and how we can all learn different tips and tricks pertaining to being better activists in our own communities.

Cellar Door Skeptics 121: MRSA Infects Facebook

https://www.spreaker.com/user/cellardoorskeptics/mrsa-infects-facebook

Cellar Door Skeptics pulls out all the stops this week with an Amazing episode ready for your listening pleasure. The show begins with a look at a new antibiotic that is in animal trials that could help super flu diseases like MRSA. They look at what the new study has found and how promising it could be to helping stop the rate of death caused by this awful disease.

After they pour out a little hand sanitizer on their microphones, the duo look at Facebook and its breach of personal integrity and a degradation of Facebook morals. Tanner downloads his facebook history and they talk about the damage done and how it feels Facebook does not want to admit wrongdoing.

The show closes tonight talking about ICE detention centers. After an NPR article was released a few months ago, they decide to look into what detention centers mean and how awful it is to live in a government mandated housing run by for profit companies.

Do not forget if you want to meet Cellar Door Skeptics and share a pint or two with them, they will be at the Michigan Atheist Convention April 7th in Detroit.

Cellar Door Skeptics 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.

Cellar Door Skeptics 119: Trump’s Tariffs and Michigan Atheist Convention

Cellar Door Skeptics is back with another amazing episode chock full segments ready to educate and anger you. The show begins with a memoriam tribute to all those who no longer work in the Trump Administration. The duo continues as they talk through the new steel and aluminum tariffs that Trump and the GOP are pushing on the world. They discuss the effects this could have on different industries and how maybe it is not the best way to Make America Great Again.

Then a great interview with Steve from Michigan Atheist joins the show to talk about the upcoming convention and the history of the Michigan Atheist Organization. This is a great local conference that is worth getting everyone together to talk about family this year.

Lastly the Chris Squared address what to do when well known and influential scientists, present material that conflict with the current scientific theory. They address how to handle it while ensuring that we all remain skeptic. They want to believe, but ensure a challenge is in place to not just accept bunk science. We all know not all science can be believed just because the person presenting it is well known or had an amazing discovery.

Cellar Door Skeptics 117: David Silverman / American Atheist Convention / Guns and Drunk Driving

LISTEN HERE!
https://www.spreaker.com/user/cellardoorskeptics/american-atheist

Cellar Door Skeptics has a riveting episode prepared for everyone. 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.
