Ep 549 – Dr. Weird Science and the Woonderful Woorld of Woo

Once upon a time, a Mormon scientist worked at the Pentagon. They nicknamed him Dr. Weird Science. He was later stationed in Japan for the US Air Force, where he investigated and invested in the most cutting edge scientific research in Asia. He listened to a recent episode of Infants on Thrones. He has a thing or two to say about the line between science and woo. He is Dave Sonntag, and today he and Chelsea Shields join Glenn to talk a little more about the Mormon (and post-Mormon) cultural attraction towards woo.
