In this installment of the Shift To Reason Radio, Cory, Lisa, Sarah, Dan, and the always amazing Dave talk about religious people who see monsters and are fooled by doctored photos, the impact of crowdfunding on quack cancer cures, myths about hysteria treatments, and the chicken pox vaccine being important. There's also the new Crackpot Audio segment. 

Here are the links
