SFR 363: Bad Clowns

–Richard Dawkins is re-invited to the NECSS conference, but suffers a stroke shortly after getting the news.
–Supreme Court Associate Justice Antonin Scalia dies, and now conspiracists are saying Obama had him murdered. What can we expect the future of the court to look like?
–RECOMMENDATIONS: Jason recommends “Footsteps in the Snow,” by Charles Lachman, an account of the conviction of a man for the 1957 murder of a child, which thereby solved the oldest cold case in American history.
badclowns–A plot involving Islamist terrorism on “The X-Files” has left wingers calling the show racist. Why?
–Apple fighting a court order requiring them to assist the FBI in “unlocking” San Bernardino terrorist’s iPhone. Civil libertarians are cheering the company, but what are their chances of winning the court battle?

In hour 2, we welcome back our old pal Benjamin Radford, who joined us to discuss his new book, “Bad Clowns.” When and where did clowns come into existence? What is it about clowns that makes some people have serious irrational fear of them? And can a clown who beats his wife and throws babies out a window really be funny? All these questions and more will be answered, so come one, come all, we hope you enjoy the show!

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.
