TRC #230: Hibernation + Hockey Science Fact or Fiction + Beyonce Lip Sync

hibernationEpisode 230 of TRC is a doozy plain and simple. The show starts off with Adam presenting a far from tired skeptical topic, hibernation. Elan then leads a hockey-themed game of Science Fact or Science Fiction. Pat closes out the show with some sleuthing regarding whether or not Beyonce lip-synced the national anthem at Obama’s inauguration.
