–We start off with some sad news: Bobby’s college classmate and friend, Jessie, dies in a snowmobile accident that also took the life of her cousin.
–Our area of Northwest Ohio and Southeastern Michigan experienced a meteor/fireball that freaked a few people out and became national news, to boot.
–It’s always good news for us when another psychic scammer gets put behind bars. This story involves Sally Ann Johnson, who relieved an elderly Martha’s Vineyard woman of over $3.5 million after convincing her that the symptoms of her dementia were caused by demonic spirits.
–So what’s been weirding us all out this week? One emailer told us an odd way his co-worker has been using the bathroom. Chris mentions Trump having enough time on his hands to create his Fake News Awards, and A.J. brings up Ohio Medicaid covering acupuncture. What the?
–The #MeToo movement has, we think, been an overall big step in the right direction for women and men, both. But we are concerned that it may be turning into a bit of a witch hunt at the same time. A couple recent cases have us wondering.
–We go back to the case of Pastor Andy Savage, whom we discussed last week, and concluded that while his “sexual incident” 20 years ago was improper, we couldn’t say for certain that it was illegal. Strange Frequencies listeners were in complete disagreement, and so we use the time here to respond to some of the arguments we encountered.
–Next we move to the Aziz Ansari case, wherein he was accused of sexual assault in a magazine article. We go over the details of this case as well, and express some surprise that he is getting as much support as he has from so many.
–Before we sign off, Tindell wants us to talk about what books we are reading. Bobby just got a copy of Michael Shermer’s latest, while Jason is reading Nick Hornby.
