This week in the news, Tim and Tom talk about a new study about attitudes about science and religion and whether or not they conflict. In our arts segment, they talk about the history of the Ouija Board, and in history, Tom enlightens us about the origins of Halloween. Also this week, we debut a new segment, called the Magic Numbers.
In this, the first “official” episode of the show, Tim & Tom discuss a new research study about America’s religious landscape and how it was covered in the press, they talk about Mary Shelley’s famous novel “Frankenstein,” and discuss the 211th anniversary of the start of the Corps of Discovery.
