SFR 360: No Laughing Matter

–The Richard Dawkins Foundation For Reason & Science has merged with the Center For Inquiry.  Does this mean the organization will continue its mission creep away from skepticism and more towards combatting religion?  If so, is that a problem?  Let’s discuss.
–Tonight is the return of “The X-Files.” We are both excited, even if we admit there were large swaths of that series that are hard to get through. Will you be watching? Do you want to believe?
–Yes, it’s another “Making A Murderer” segment, okay? But when you hear the rap song by Brendan Dassey’s half-brother, you’ll understand why we just had to include it.
emeryemery–Black people, and other minorities, are shut out of Oscar acting categories again, and charges of racial bias are piling up. Would more diversity among the Academy’s voters change much? Which nominee(s) would you remove to insert the minority nominee of your choice?

In hour 2 we spoke to Emery Emery to get a comedian’s take on offensive comedy and the new breed of political correctness. (His voice sounds a little Darth Vaderish for a time, but it gets better, so hang in there…) Throughout the discussion, we talk about whether any topic can and should be turned into a joke, if there is any line that cannot be crossed, and if Emery himself has ever received backlash for a joke he made? This is a really great discussion on a fascinating topic.  Give it a listen!
