Cellar Door Skeptics 154: A Trail of Tear Gas
Cellar Door Skeptics starts the show off talking about their Thanksgiving experiences and if the politics divided their dinner tables this year. They also talked about their charity of the week BeNice. Mental health is the main focus for this program as it works to educate schools on bullying and techniques to help schools better cope with the issues that are affecting students now a days. Their science segment this week looks at Plants and Ants, which came first and how evolution played a role between species that are not able to breed. The political segment this week talks about Trump’s desire to take control of the military troops to “protect” the border without running afoul of Congress. He has authorized “Force” for the troops to deter individuals seeking asylum. The duo looks at what legal asylum is and if Trump is violating the law. They also examine the border spectrum to determine what the long game that Trump is trying to play. The show ends as usual with the Quick Saves of the week.
