Barry “Physics Commando” was again a guest on the show and we figured it was time to give him his own parody! This week its of Pink Floyd’s iconic “Another Brick In The Wall Part 2.” All in all its just another myth that will fall!
This week’s parody is of 50 Cent’s In Da Club. Factoid: 50 was sued by 2 Live Crew frontman, Luther Campbell, for the lines “it’s your birthday” suggesting that this had be plagiarized from his track “Freak For Life.” The lawsuit was dismissed with the decision that the phrase was “common, unoriginal and noncopyrightable.”
We like big facts and we cannot lie! This week’s show kicked off with a segment about whether the word “lardass” was auto correcting to “Kardashian” on iPhones. Surely there has never been a better opportunity to do a parody of Sir Mix-A-Lot’s Baby Got Back.
Episode 382 has honorary TRC-er Dallas Card back for a visit. Dallas gives us a look into the world of “Deep Learning,” a kind of machine learning. In his honour, we did a parody of Elle King’s Ex’s and Oh’s with the lyrics “zero and ones”.
Friend of the show and emergency physician Dr. Ken Milne joins the panel for this week’s show and gives us an interesting segment on knowledge translation. Ken is also the host of The Skeptics Guide To Emergency Medicine. Of course, he had to have his very own parody and Calling Dr. Love by Kiss seemed a good candidate!
In honour of Dr. Stuart Robbins aka @DrAstroStu returning to the show to talk about Pluto and New Horizons, we thought he deserved his own parody! Pink’s “Get The Party Started” seemed to pack the right punch.
Cristina brings us a segment on whether Sesame Street increases educational outcomes for preschoolers. Well, we just had to parody the iconic theme song of the show. Can you tell me how to get, how to get to skeptical street?
