–Strange Frequencies Radio kicks off with Bobby wishing Jason was in-studio so he could force a Guiness on him. But there’s only one beer he likes, and that isn’t it. This leads to us discussing the weird and funny things beer and wine lovers say about the smells and tastes of their favorite beverages.
–Bobby has been watching Unsolved Mysteries with his daughter, which Jason thinks can be a great teaching tool. Jason watched several episodes the night before, too, and is enjoying the detail paid to the reenactments.
–Bobby talks about a UFO experience of his own he had right around December. Did he ever come up with an explanation?
–Jason talks a bit about the famous Hudson Valley UFO sightings, and discusses how UFO cases in particular often end up having very mundane explanations.
–Bobby shares some of his favorite ghost stories featured on Unsolved Mysteries, including the Heidi Wyrick/Haunting in Georgia case.
–Super cool listener Eric asked up to talk about recent flying humanoid/possible mothman sightings in the news, and we discuss a couple out of Indiana. We love the stories, but give a skeptical analysis of the reports just the same because that’s what we do!
–A World War 1 memorial in Maryland is under fire from humanist and Jewish groups who believe it violates the separation of church and state. We discuss the Supreme Court case that is ongoing, and give our reasons why we think the memorial should be left alone, even if it is shaped like a cross.
–Neither Jason or Bobby have a faith-based belief system. So would it surprise you to learn that they have each recently told someone that we are praying for them?
–That said, it can be tough sometimes not to lash out when the topic of religion comes up. Particularly, like Bobby, when during foster parenting classes, someone asked what to do if they get an atheistic child or, as they called them, a “devil baby.”
–Jason ends the show vowing next episode to discuss the topic of “toxic masculinity” as asked to by loyal friend and listener Bryce. He also said he will respond to critiques we received over our recent hate crime hoax discussion from last week. So make sure to stay tuned in next time for more on those topics!
