SFR 367: In Honor of Jeffrick

–The show opens on a sad note, as Jason and Bobby announce that their friend, and longtime SFR listener/chatroom attendee James Frederick (aka Jeffrick) has passed away. We remember him with a few fun anecdotes.
–We hate April Fools Day.  Still, we’ve noticed that, occasionally, even news organizations try to get in on the fun.  But, should they?  Knowing how fast bullshit can travel, don’t they have a responsibility to be as factual as possible with the public everyday?
–It’s so great seeing a phony psychic get exposed as a con artist on television. That’s exactly what happened recently when Inside Edition sent one particular grief vampire scrambling for the door.
3306_05–Is it appropriate to refer to someone like this as a “phony psychic,” or is that redundant?
–Even if it’s true that a psychic has never provided key evidence to solve a crime, does that mean detectives should never bother following up on potential psychic leads? We discuss.
–An anti-vax film from a prominent medical fraud has been pulled from the Tribeca Film Festival after public outcry. The filmmakers are saying its censorship. Do they have a point? Or is this just a win for skeptical activism?
–A black female student assaults a white male student at San Francisco State University because she felt his dreadlocks were an example of “cultural appropriation.”
–We’re hours from Wrestlemania as we record this, and Jason is a little tired of hearing from people who tell him that wrestling is fake.  He knows.  And so is your favorite movie, by the way.

    Pancreatic cancer hits hard and fast. My grandma died from it only 4 days after diagnosis. Jeffrick will be missed- I’ve been listening long enough that he’s pretty well ingrained into the show for me.
