Skeptical Help Bar with Kenny Biddle - Paranormal/Skeptical

Skeptical Help Bar with Kenny Biddle - Paranormal/Skeptical

The Bar is Open! Each week, skeptical investigator Kenny Biddle hosts a Q&A show where listeners are encouraged to grab an adult beverage and ask paranormal-related questions. I'll offer my own skeptical opinion based on my experience, knowledge, and Google. I have four simple guidelines; 1 - I welcome paranormal-related questions if you're interested in a more skeptical point of view. 2 - I don't know everything, so I may very well answer "I don't know". I don't make things up. However, I love to look up new things...so we can all learn something new. 3 - This is for fun. It's an open Q&A for friendly discussion of topics from different viewpoints. So, don't be a dick. 4 - It's a virtual bar, so grab yourself a real adult beverage and join in. When I'm feeling REALLY good, that's when the Skeptical Help Bar closes for the night. If questions & comments need to be clarified, guests are encouraged to come on as a guest! I enjoy talking, plus it's nice to hear a voice other than my own! I might even have a special guest on from time to time that can offer more insight on specific topics.

In this episode, we're talking about talking boards! Kenny starts out with a cliff notes version of the history of the talking board, then we dive into viewer questions and experiences. Kenny shows some of the many boards he has and relates some of his experiences. Oh, we also see the first viewer booted from the show (for not following one of the three SIMPLE rules).

The first part of this episode is "Open Mic" night, taking on general questions about ghosts, UFOs, and cryptids. In the second part, JD Sword and Kenny take part in the Paqui One Chip Challenge to raise money for the Cancer Research Institute. We both ate the chip and suffered intense burning and not-so-nice feelings...but we raised over $600 for our charity.

It's "Open Mic" night at the Skeptical Help Bar - I take on your questions about various topics. We get into investigations methods, vampires & werewolves, we take a look at a slightly inappropriate SLS kinect video of a "ghost," and much more. The start of the show is a bit rough - I was late getting ready and Facebook was giving me some problems, but it gets back on track quickly.

Grab a dri...
