Today, on "How awful can people be?" we cover some more misogyny because the world we live in is great to women. A bit of a short episode where we talk a LOT about some ways you should NOT treat women in the workplace. Oh, and we announce some neat stuff, too! For example, our new youtube channel!
I guess we aren't too happy over some of the latest nonsense we have found in the last few weeks. Harvey Weinstein and Mythicist Milwaukee dominate the conversations this episode, and it's difficult to make light of consistent exploitation and victimization.

Well the assholes were out in full force it seems, and we are here to make sure they don't fly under the radar. Can politicians like porn? Just why do geriatric men enjoy women younger than their grandchildren so much? Why don't people realize how damaging their asshole opinions are to the future generations? No answers to these questions and more in this episode, but we do have fun speculating!

We haven't forgotten your beautiful ears, we are here, we promise! Listen to 2 overtired podcasters rant about nazis and... more shitty white men. I guess shitty white men is the overall theme of tonight's episode. Though for the first time in Keith's life, he says something nice about Taylor Swift. But there is time travel references, and we prove that history is already repeating itself;
Measels are back, an asian country is threatening the US, Nazis are marching and rallying, it is now 1942. Last year, we had Backstreet Boys touring and a Clinton running for the White House meant it was the 90s. Do we have anyone smart enough with the maths to let us know what time period to expect next year???
Back from NaNoCon, Jenn and the Podunk Polymath tell us their tales of glory, adventure and glorious adventure! Chris joins us to share some of the memories and good times that were had over the weekend he and Jenn found themselves on a panel. Then we dive into some talk about the religious bills being tabled in Tennessee. Stay tuned to find out why free speech in Canada isn't under attack, unless you believe free speech means you don't need to respect anyone else.
So, because we forgot to be polite and tell you good listeners how to find him, here is the link to our guest's page
With such long breaks in between episodes these days, we have too much to talk about when we get together but sometimes only an hour to shoot the shit and chat it up. What's most important about this episode is that you find out how you can see Jenn on Saturday, March 18th at NaNoCon. Yes, the amazing and opinionated, misplaced New Yorker is speaking at the Nashvile Nones Convention (NaNoCon get it?) We wrap up our discussion on punching Richard Spencer in the facehole, as well as shed some light on a few issues we feel are overlooked far too often.
I have adjusted the volumes, and cannot apologize enough for that lapse in judgement. I hope fixing it, paired with the video of the girl from North Korea being added makes up for it:
The two gentlemen behind Cellar Door Skeptics are back and joining us for a sort of roundtable discussion on a new national holiday, Nazi-Punching day! Okay, so we don't actually believe in running around feeding left hooks to nazis, but we do discuss some of the ethical topics that arise from Richard Spencer getting punched in the face. As usual, everyone is in fine form and now, we want you to enjoy part 1 of a 2 part discussion on nazi-punching. #Hanner
