Episode 51: NWA Pride 2017
Episode 51: NWA Pride Week! A little bit different show tonight. We kick off things by reviewing a really cheap beer: Rockdale Classic from Rockdale Brewing Co. in La Grosse, WI ($4.28 at Walmart). The beer is decent, better than most American Adjunct Lagers, but not great by any stretch of the imagination. The Brewpub gives it 4.5 beers out of a 6 pack. Then Brother Brewer jumps into a review of the upcoming bestseller by Dana Fredsti, Spawn of Lilith. No spoilers, but it is a very good book and I highly recommend it once it releases on June 27th. (https://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/the-spawn-of-lilith-dana-fredsti/1125283340). After we get the reviews out of the way, the Pub opens to Kate Johnson. Kate is heading up the plans for this year’s NWA Pride Festival in Fayetteville, AR. We talk about some of the exciting events coming up, the parade itself, and a little bit about the NWA Center for Equality, a great bunch of people that are dedicated to LGBT equality and inclusion in and around Walmart Mecca. (NWA Center for Equality: http://nwaequality.org/ Northwest Arkansas Pride 2017 schedule of events: http://nwaequality.org/nwapride/).

EP44: Undercover at a Chiropractic ADHD Seminar
Support the show at www.patreon.com/skepticsbrewpub Now for something a little different. Brother Brewer goes undercover to bring you a chiropractic seminar on non-medication treatment of ADHD and by extension autism, because we all know that the two are related… heavy on the sarcasm. Sitting in and then realizing it took 14 times longer to research and refute the information she presented than to listen to the schpeal, it is easy to see how people can fall prey to a lot of pseudoscientific baloney. It seems they are really good at adding in just enough real science to fool most people who don’t have the critical thinking skills to understand it is mostly bunk.
