Cellar Door Skeptics 133: Trade Wars and Boycotting God Chicken

The Cellar Door Skeptics take a step back this week with a more mellow disposition to the discussion of the current state of America. The duo start the episode off talking about a survey eliciting peoples opinion on what could be better alternatives to boycotting organizations that do not fit your moral compass.

They later move on to a discussion about E3, their favorite titles, and how as privileged men, they are able to enjoy the rich story and satisfying game play these new video games have over them. They also reflect back to their childhoods as they discover the inner soul that once made them children in a wondrous land.

The episode concludes talking about tariffs, trade goods, and the new war on the middle class. With Harley Davidson moving production out of the US, #45 takes a stab at threatening them with some sort of new Space Force Power that allows #45 to change the outcome of their capitalistic endeavour. Join them on the journey to reveal how tariffs impact our economy in more than one way.
