Hosts: Natalie Newell (Skeptical Parenting) and Dan Broadbent (A Science Enthusiast)!

Sponsor: Labia lipstick: shove it in your cunt!

God of the week: El!

Interview: Orthodox Jewish rabbis require women to show them their panties. Today in, “what the actual fuck,” we bring you this story, told by the woman to whom it happened - Katia Areyah.

Her article: I Had to Take My Dirty Panties to a Rabbi, and So Has Every Orthodox Jewish Woman

Why we love the internet: Trolley Problem Memes!

Quote of the Week: 

"Believing there is no God means the suffering I've seen in my family, and indeed all the suffering in the world, isn't caused by an omniscient, omnipresent, omnipotent force that isn't bothered to help or is just testing us, but rather something we all may be able to help others with in the future. No God means the possibility of less suffering in the future." -Penn Jillette

Be like Trevor, Michael, Alice, Michael, Felix, Michael, Bruce, Amanda, Kris, James, and Sarah: Become a patron at or! Or why not both?

Next week: Next week we’ll be back with our favorite non-ginger-haired Nerd, Myles Power, who came to the show armed with some favorite swears (and whole bunch of interesting stuff to talk about).

Next week's episode: witter at @SciEnthusiasts and on Facebook as @ScienceEnthusiastPodcast!
