In this episode, Josh and Chuck finally expose their political lefty biasis. You should know, they don't report accurately.

Man, this was such an eye-opening podcast. Everything seems to be about money these days, not what's best for the community. Not sure where all of this is going to lead America, but it doesn't seem good. Or, then again, has it always been like this. As far as living abroad, I've been dreaming of this for years. Hoping I'll make it happen soon. Cheers.

cringe episode • alcoholism discussion was misplaced. talk of if someone is always an alcoholic should be in an alcoholism episode... • so much was left out of this episode. the talk about diets was hooey. the impression I came away with, is that someone that's had any of these procedures can keep on without making any significant lifestyle changes to maintain. bring on the ice cream, candy and chips and couch-potatoism... um, no. • blowing over the fact that people can/do gain it back was another missed opportunity to give a better discussion. ~~~~~~ listen with caution as this episode misses so much. it's great the surgery is safer and has positive impacts, but overall is a miss on conveyance and big picture details.

I'm stunned guys, I never thought you would have the stones to call out islams intolerance and the plight of gay people in some African countries, bravo I commend your bravery. also acknowledging the menace of the far left on university campuses, I'm pleasantly surprised!

You guys are awesome!! I've listened for years and I enjoy each episode. I just wanted to comment on this episode... You're correct in that DNA profiles can yield false positives, it's a probability after all. I agree that jurors and the public should be educated about DNA. (Another interesting topic: genetic chimerism) Regarding fingerprints, there has not never been a documented case of two individuals having the same print. In the segment regarding the marrow transplant, red blood cells do not have a nucleus, there for do not carry DNA but rather hemoglobin. Frogs on the other hand do have nucleated RBCs. Keep up the great work and have a wonderful day! Christopher (CSI, Latent Analysis)
