696: Shoeless Joe, Charlie Chaplin, & Sneaky Sneakers


Show Notes

Today we learn why Susie is feeling nostalgic about the Challenge and Sarah never got full closure after her season. We hear about an author who Susie suspected of misrepresenting scientific facts, who now was found to be a plagiarist, and she feels vindicated in sniffing out a scammer. We discuss the girls basketball team who was forced to play in a boys tournament, won, and then was denied the trophy because they are…girls. Susie talks about a man who hasn’t worn shoes in twenty years, and she is not happy about it at all. We discuss the privilege he is leveraging to do this, and we debate why shoes are even necessary. Susie reveals how Reuters caught one company claiming to recycle shoes while it turns out they were just dumping them off for donations and resale. Plus, Susie reveals some unsavory gossip about Charlie Chaplin that is changing our opinion of the film legend.
