SFR 321: 50 Shades of Controversy

–With 50 Shades of Grey back in the news, we talk about the instances of stalking, as well as emotional and physical abuse it contains, and talk about what has drawn so many women into it.
–Former “Ghost Hunters” star Amy Bruni posts an anti-skeptical activism Facebook status, which has riled up quite a few people. We try to reasonably assess where she was SFR_Eyecoming from, and talk about where we agree and where we disagree with her.
–Because we enjoy talking about how non-progressive Pope Francis is, here’s a story about the People’s Pope himself comparing arguments for the rights of transgender people to a nuclear arms race that “defy the order of Creation.”
–Recommendations: Jason can’t believe he hasn’t yet recommended Lynn Kelly’s “The Skeptic’s Guide to the Paranormal,” a book which led him to question a lot of his paranormal assumptions. Bobby says if you’re interested in history or the Salem Witch Trials, check out “The Six Women of Salem,” by Marilynne K. Roach.
–What if God is real? What would you ask God if you had the chance? We put that question to our Facebook page and received a variety of terrific responses.
–The Academy Awards are tonight. Can Jason once again go undefeated in his predictions? Definitely not, he says. But he gives it a shot anyway.

About Jason Korbus

Friend, family member, possible werewolf. I co-host Strange Frequencies Radio, blog at Confidential Korbus, and generally walk among the weird. When I'm not doing busywork, I can usually be found with my nose in a book, my eyes glued to a glowing screen, or my ears tuned to The Ramones.
