On this week’s show we discuss Ogopogo (Canada’s own Loch Ness monster), the recent survey that claimed that Canadians believed that it was more likely that scientists would discover Bigfoot than politicians would keep their promises, and the health benefits of spirulina (a type of algea that is gaining in popularity). We then tackle the logical fallacy and science myth of the week.
