    With football's biggest game of the year on the world stage, we're going to take you down the darker side of the sport to really ruin the game for you. That's what we do. Jason Reedy joins us once again for a wild ride into science, sports, history, and intrigue to dive into what exactly is CTE and what all the hype is about. Why are we just hearing about it in the last decade or two? What does it do to us? And if you were an emerging star in the game and could make $100m playing football and take care of your family for generations would you do it knowing you're likely to get CTE?  What are some positives from head trauma?

    Ep. 70b - Climate Change Part II: The Theories

    Ep. 70b - Climate Change Part II: The Theories

    Whether we'd like to admit it or not, there are three theories when it comes to climate change. One, climate change is real we are destroying ourselves by burning fossil fuels and the like. Two, climate change is real but it is naturally occuring. Or three, climate change is not real (climate change deniers). One of the three is more widely accepted than the others, but on our conclusion show on climate change we break down all three and why they each may or may not be correct. Spoiler alert-we conclude nothing in Grognostics fashion but we certainly explore everything. And everywhere. And I mean everywhere. We might even be watching you right now. You. As in if you were a polar bear. We are watching you white fluff ball you. Give a listen and enjoy. Happy Holidays.

    Ep. 70a Climate Change - Part I

    If you've read any news in the last decade and/or simply walked outside you've noticed things are changing with our climate. However, is the media giving us all the correct information and is the climate actually changing? Many would say yes. Others say no. And others just want to drink beer and listen to awesome podcasts like this one. Which one are you? On the first part of our two-part series we discuss what climate change is and give you an introduction to the theories of what is actually happening as well as dazzle you with a holiday-themed skit you're sure to forget or at least call your therapist about very soon. Enjoy. 
    Check back for part 2 very soon.
