Be Back Soon


Bobby is home from Florida, but sick in bed with a nasty illness that has left him without much of a voice.  Jason ate something called a Caveman Combo last night, then followed it up with Pringles, yet somehow remains the healthy one.  We look forward to returning with new episodes of SFR as soon as possible.

SFR 419: Glass City Heat

–While Bobby deals with some howling werewolves, Jason starts talking about Wonder Woman, a movie that is a hit with audiences; women in particular. Why? Because it shows a “strong woman” and doesn’t rely on the main character’s sexuality.
–Bobby tells a story he heard about a mother who made up her daughter’s hair for her school’s “crazy hair day,” and later regretted that she led her child to appropriate black culture.
SFR_Eye–We recount how our skeptic meetup went this past Wednesday, and how nice of a time we had. Jason says he was glad he didn’t have to do all the talking. Bobby says that once the topic is himself, he can go on forever.
–We missed the “covfefe” hubbub while we were gone, but get into it now. Mainly, we agree that it should be pronounced with a silent v, and with a flourish of the hand.
–Has the Comey testimony been much ado about nothing? It kind of seems so. While Trump may have acted improperly, and there’s no doubt the guy is a little unhinged, neither of us heard anything that sounded like obstruction of justice, treason, or any other high crimes and misdemeanors.
–A trio of entertainers got into trouble recently, and we cover each individually. First, Kathy Griffin was fired from CNN’s New Year’s Eve coverage for images involving her holding up the “severed head” of Donald Trump. Bill Maher got into some pretty hot water for using “the N-word” on his HBO show Real Time, and had to deal with Ice Cube. Plus, Reza Aslan was canned from CNN for calling Donald Trump a “piece of shit.”
–We finish up with a bit about the recent goings-on in the Cosby sexual assault trial. Jason doesn’t want to make a prediction about the outcome, but fears that if he is found not guilty, it will cause a lot of blowback from the victims of sexual assault.

SFR 418: Spooky Geology | Guest: Sharon Hill

–Bobby has invested in a beehive, and this time they’re in no danger of him taking care of them. In return, he has honey! Lots of honey!
shill–TMZ is reporting that Chris Cornell had “fresh track marks” on his arm, and a close source says Cornell was “high” and “fucked up” during show, but not depressed.
–Time for Trump Talk, y’all! We have some laughs this week at our president’s expense, like reading the guestbook note he left at Yad Vashem. Also, is it just us? Or do you kind of feel bad for Sean Spicer?

In the second hour of the show, we welcome longtime friend Sharon Hill to walk us through some “spooky geology.” In particular, we discuss the Stone Tape Theory of ghost hunting, where the idea came from, and if there can be any validity to it at all from a geological perspective. Also, Sharon offers some thoughts on the current state of the skeptical community, and gives Jason and Bobby some advice on their own upcoming skeptic group meetup.

SFR 417: Breaking Down Unbreakable

–The suicide of Chris Cornell Wednesday night after a performance in Detroit has shocked the music world, and there are many who doubt it was a suicide at all.
unbreakable–A lot of Trump Talk to catch up on. Between the unexpected firing of James Comey, to the appointment of a special prosecutor to oversee the Russia probe, how can anyone be expected to keep up with it?
The remainder of today’s show is devoted to a review of the 2000 M. Night Shyamalan film Unbreakable. We give a synopsis, talk about the cast and crew, and give a near scene by scene analysis of the movie, talking about our favorite moments and dialogue along the way. Enjoy, but remember: no shooting friends, Joseph!

SFR 416: Satanic Panic

–It’s a lovely spring day in Toledo, so we start the show with what we hope is a refreshing watermelon beer. Bobby is not happy with it. Jason asks for a refill. Has Bobby finally found a beer Jason will enjoy?
–We share our thoughts about the “Trumpcare” vote in the House, and are perplexed as to why there was a celebration on the White House lawn. Conservative commentator Charles Krauthammer, who hated Obamacare, thinks it nevertheless changed how people see the concept of healthcare, and predicts a single-payer system within 7 years.
SFR_Eye–Did Stephen Colbert go too far when he joked that Trump’s mouth is only good for being Vladimir Putin’s “cock holster”? Or is this another bullshit distraction?
–Bobby gives an update on his sale of the “Joe’s Box” from last week, and Jason enjoys learning more about why people think Bobby is a fraud.
–We have been invited to hang out and speak with a local skeptic group about how we “gave up the ghost” and we’re really excited!
–Bobby shares some thoughts about how he has begun to disassociate himself from the skeptical community at-large. Jason says that, while he never wanted to be part of a clique, he still enjoys the people, and continues to appreciate the work they do.
–Local “prophetess” Opal Covey’s campaign van goes up in flames. Was this the work of Satan?
–Stephen Fry is being investigated in Ireland on charges of blasphemy. Bobby thinks the whole thing is ludicrous, and Jason wonders if God should be compelled to testify.
–Jason somehow became a horse race reporter when he tweeted about Thunder Snow during the Kentucky Derby.
–A town in Minnesota has agreed to allow the Satanic Temple to display a monument in their public park.
–Bobby is furious as the parents behind the “Daddy of 5” videos whose Youtube channel was devoted mainly to playing vicious pranks on their small children. One in particular has drawn enough ire that the children have been removed from the home by authorities.
–Jason wants to ensure that we wish the citizens of Earth a good night.

SFR 415: Joe’s Box #1

–Former Paranormal State television star, Ryan Buell, is arrested after a domestic dispute with his boyfriend. This being the latest in a series of legal issues Ryan has gotten involved with, we truly hope he is able to bounce back and live a happy, healthy life. But it may be a long, hard road ahead.
SFR BLOG–Bobby tells a story of selling a paranormal item from his collection called a “Joe’s Box,” marked #1 by creator Joe Cioppi. He found out the following behind these items is very passionate, and they will borderline threaten you if they believe you are passing off a forgery.
–Jason wants to know what you do when you are eating at a restaurant and find a hair in your food? Some are disgusted and immediately send it back. We’re the opposite. We just pick it out and keep chowing. Jason likens it to human garnish.
–Bobby will be going back to Florida in June, and will visit Key West. Jason is mad that, while he has been to Orlando twice, he has not visited a specific true crime location, of even the WWE Performance Center, to send him photos.
–Televangelist Benny Hinn has been raided by the Feds, possibly related to issues involving tax evasion, though no charges have been filed. This leads us into talking about Peter Popoff, and the other “unsinkable rubber ducks,” as James Randi liked to call them.
–Bobby shares a couple Star Wars fan theories involving the background of Rey, and how she may be the daughter of Luke Skywalker. Jason dislikes that there are so many relatives in the Star Wars Universe, and that they all seem to have daddy issues.
–The topic of teen suicide comes up right before we are about to end the show, and Bobby wonders if it has increased because of social media. Jason mentions the book/Netflix series Thirteen Reasons Why, and how some are warning parents of teenagers about the graphic suicide depicted.
–Jason tries to end the show, but Bobby can’t let an old bad movie review go.

SFR 414: Smorgasbord

–We’ve been gone for two weeks, and there is a lot to catch up on. Let’s start with this: why did a couple of non-believers like us take Easter off?
–Bobby recounts his trip the 40th anniversary Star Wars Celebration in Orlando, meeting Mark Hamill, seeing John Williams conduct his orchestra live, and much more. Along the way, we learn the benefits of having MS.
Bill O’Reilly is out at Fox News after ongoing sexual harassment scandals. We talk about the statement from 21st Century Fox, why it’s complete bullshit, and lament that it took sponsors dropping out before anything was done.
–We missed a few viral news stories while we were gone. One of the big ones was the United passenger being dragged off his flight. We also talk about how any viral star, whether they ask for it or not, will have their past investigated.
Ghost hunters were arrested after breaking into an old middle school building in Union, SC. But instead of EMF detectors and digital recorders, the ringleader “Woo Woo” brought a gun and weed. Party on, dudes!
–As if there were ever any doubt, The X Files is coming back for another 10 episode run. We reminisce about interviewing “The Cigarette Smoking Man” last year.
–In a custody battle with his wife, Alex Jones’ lawyer argues that Jones is a performance artist. We don’t believe that, but nor do we think his wacky views are enough for him to lose his son over. Jason hates this story for making him defend Alex Jones.
–This past Thursday night, Bobby and his old partner reunited onstage as their horrorcore rap alter-egos Skitz and Alchemy. This was the first performance by The Sycoz in 17 years, and Jason not only got to experience it, he even filmed some! You can check it out by clicking here.
