Some far right wingers in the EU are boycotting Toblerone because of Islamophobia. We have discovered that there is a Jewish Santa Claus running around out there. We also discuss the disastrous funeral in Michigan that was ruined by a former coach and the pastor. Salt Bae is put into The Last Supper and people are arrested for it. Finally someone wants to melt purity rings to make a vagina statue.

We wrap up with a discussion about where the new year will take us. We will be off for the next couple of weeks while Chad wraps up his schooling and Amanda goes on vacation.

It’s a new Christmas season with another round of nativity scenes with cages and fences. We also go over a wide range of topics including Maria Butina pleading guilty to being a Russian agent, Cardinal Pell being found guilty of abuse, and funding Trumps border wall. Also included is our live reactions to the senate approving a bill that includes funding for the border wall just to keep the government from shutting down.

This week we discuss CRISPR and some of the problems it is discovered to have. Two married women both carried the same baby in a new technique. Indonesia is on the verge of a measles epidemic if the Muslims there do not start getting vaccines. Finally, there is a new app for Hindu’s to purchase prayers through an app and we totally bastardize the concept.

Jeff Sessions has finally been fired/asked to resign which will probably get the ball rolling on some more craziness. In the midst of that, we are dealing with wrapping up the midterm elections, and a deadly wildfire and another shooting in California.
