    The McDonald's Hot Coffee Case

    Mike tells Sarah how a tragic story became a national punchline and a decades-long moral panic. Digressions include a sympathetic psychic, a paternalistic principal and a manure mishap. Mike appears to be unaware of the difference between a cousin and a nephew.

    Summer Book Club: "The Satan Seller" (The Debunking!)

    Summer Book Club: "The Satan Seller" (The Debunking!)

    This week we debunk Mike Warnke right out of his cabin and into the lake, using Cornerstone Magazine’s long overdue exposé as our guide. Digressions include "Star Trek," a classic New Yorker cover and Ariana Grande. We definitively conclude that the Bible endorses cancel culture.
    This episode, we’re sorry to say, includes detailed descriptions of domestic abuse.

Great show

Always informative, witty and entertaining

Investigating the truth behind the popular narrative

Title sounds confrontational but it’s not so much “I’m right, you’re wrong” it’s more “I was wrong but then I researched it.” My favorite podcast, always interesting!

Marc Monkey

Very funny, very informative

This quickly became my favorite podcast. Michael and Sarah dive into the stories you thought you knew from the 80s and 90s, dissecting moral panics, ridiculous outrages, and misguided movements. Highly recommended.
