In this episode Destin, Lisa, Rene, and Dave tackle a variety of topics ranging from silly to important for day to day life during the winter months. First Rene talks about a guy who claims to have sex with astral beings in the astral plane, Lisa discusses a study that seems to show fructan as being something people are sensitive to instead of gluten, and Destin talks about how winter tires work and why they're important.

We also hit our thousand page likes goal on Facebook. Thanks to a share from the Skeptical Meme Society and The Credible Hulk we got over it by 50 new page likes. I hope those who like the page and decide to listen to the show enjoy it. 

As a result of hitting our goal I need to do a give away. So, I’m giving away a few things. First, the first person to share the show, screenshot where they shared it and email me that screenshot will get a shirt from our cafepress store or from our sponsor store; AbsenceofClothing.com , second, I have a medium sized woman’s cut t-shirt with the Brainstorm logo on it. The second person to share the show, screenshot it and email it to me will get that. I have 6 black ball caps with the Brainstorm logo hand embroidered onto the front of them. Follow the same procedure and the next 6 people will get one of those each. We also have about a hundred stickers but I thought I’d give 2 of those away to each person who shared the show and emailed me the screenshot of it. So that’s around 60 people who can get something from us for sharing the show. All emails can be sent to mail@brainstormblog.net. I’m not sure if the contact page on the website will allow attachments so you may have to email it from your regular email address. You can of course, opt out of a particular prize if you just want whatever the next one is or you don’t like stickers or can’t use a medium woman’s cut tee shirt or whatever. 

So make sure to share the show, whether by sharing the page, sharing the newest episode after it comes out, sharing the live show, or sharing the patreon link and you can get some Brainstorm merchandise.
