 In this episode of Shift to Reason Radio we talk about some seriously WTF!? stories, some Woo, some science, and some politics. A little bit of everything from Cory, Sarah, Lisa, Angela, and Dave. Plus we had a lot of fun with the Discord chat so make sure to join us for live shows and chat with us while listening live.
