Accidents That Created The Best Art Of The 20th Century  

It's easy to think every piece of great art or unforgettable pop-culture is the result of effortless genius and precise intentionality. It separates the gods who create from us lay-people who like to eat cheese and can barely decide what to watch on Netflix. Take Spock's "Live Long and Prosper" hand signal. Yeah, it seems a little trivial, it's not 'Starry Night' or 'Hey Jude' or anything, but it's an icon that's lasted in the popular culture for 50 years and stands only second to "May the Force be with you" as the most recognizable totem of the sci-fi genre. Only a genius could've come up with that, right? Not really. Gene Roddenberry and company wanted the Vulcan salute to be the peace sign until Lenoard Nimoy took a stand for what was right and was like, "hey, this is dumb. I know this is coming from the dude wearing pointy ears right now, but can I just try this other thing so I don't look like the stupidest person on television?"And thank god Nimoy did that, because otherwise everyone would've thought 'Star Trek' was cheesy crap, or at least cheesier than it already was considered. So sometimes genius isn't in the intention as much as it is being able to realize a mistake, correct it and pray to god your new solution isn't as dull as the idea that preceded it. And pop culture is so littered with examples like these, there's a lone Native American man shedding a single tear over it. That much litter.So Jack O'Brien is joined on the podcast this week by Cracked's Teresa Lee and Alex Schmidt to talk about the behind the scenes mistakes and last-minute casting changes that made some movies and video games better. They also talk about some ghastly original versions of famous scripts that thankfully never saw the light of day. You don't want to know what the original description of Han Solo was (hint: it included the words "green" and "gills").

160 Romantic Comedies: The Creepiest Movie Genre  

Think of every RomCom trope and the one thing that separates it from being in a horror movie instead: the music. It's all the same mad libs game, and the outcome is always the same.Colin Firth/Hugh Grant/Matthew McConaughey runs to the airport/apartment building/twee bakery to declare his undying love for the maid/undercover journalist/baker he just met last week. The music swells, they kiss, the girl's less attractive best friend sighs, "oh I wish architect/surgeon/astronaut Chet Wellington could fall in love with me," and the credits roll. But what if, instead of the swelling music, it was a single piano note being played backwards, or an old-timey phonograph blowing out a single child singing, "Ring Around the Rosie?" 'Love Actually' would turn into an actual horror movie. The little boy chasing the little girl through the airport would take on a new interpretation. 'Shining 2: This Time It's British Christmas."RomComs are weird like that. They take a thing most people experience (falling in love) and turn it into a warped version of reality that only abides by backwards rules: where chasing someone down is considered romantic and getting the person to like you is the hardest part, not that whole spending the next 5 decades together thing. No, that part is easy (cries self to sleep).So this week on the podcast, Jack O'Brien is joined by Cracked editor Soren Bowie and comedian and writer Jamie Loftus from 'The Bechdel Cast' to talk about how RomComs get almost everything wrong and when you change just one detail, they become creepy stalker thrillers.Our next live podcast is on Saturday, January 14th at 7pm at the UCB Sunset Theatre in Los Angeles. Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark from 'My Favorite Murder' are back for another hour of creepy unsolved murders and even creepier solved ones.

The 80s: Our Most Bizarre Decade (Is Happening Again)  

Name the year: a new Star War is killing it at the box office, Russia and the US are having a staring contest and a madman driven by the power of celebrity is elected President. Yes, it's looking very much like we're living in the year 1980 right now and we want it to stop. I mean, if this is 1980, that means we're only three years away from more Ewoks. Although what is a Minion but yellow Ewok?But in all seriousness, the world has taken a turn for the conservative as it did in the early 80s. Free love and long hair were gone and replaced by shoulder pads, cocaine and rich white kids who thought the stock market was dope. So is there anything redeemable about this situation other than the prospect of getting some cool movies and punk music?Jack O'Brien and Daniel O'Brien are joined by comedian, podcast host and 'Saved by the Bell' historian April Richardson for a conversation about how 80s pop-culture perfectly represented those regressive times and how some of the patterns we saw then are starting to appear now in our modern pop-culture. They also talk about 'Saved by the Bell' a lot. Like, a whole bunch.Our next live podcast is on Saturday, January 14th at 7pm at the UCB Sunset Theatre in Los Angeles. Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark from 'My Favorite Murder' are back for another hour of creepy unsolved murders and even creepier solved ones.

The 25 Coolest Things We Discovered in 2016  

It's not just us right? There are too many damn movies and TV shows to keep up with. When we're not in the middle of a season of Game of Thrones, Westworld, Silicon Valley, Stranger Things, or House of Cards, there are always 40 other shows just waiting to get started. If only you were ready to make the commitment. Your girlfriend wants you to propose but you can't even commit to Six Feet Under, let alone the next 60 years of your life.This glut of TV shows we're experiencing completely fails to lack the steady stream of quality movies coming out not only in the US but all around the world. And the surplus of movies doesn't even address how behind you are on music. Open up Spotify or look at the next festival lineup and you can barely recognize a third of the bands there. And we're not being old fogies complaining about music these days-- most of these bands are good-- we just can't keep up with them. 21 Pilots, 21 Savage, 21 Scarecrows. Only one of those band names is completely made up.So to give a little order to this exponentially insane world, Jack O'Brien is joined by Cracked editors Soren Bowie and Jason Pargin (aka David Wong) to talk about some of their favorite they discovered in 2016. They commiserate about the superabundance of content and Soren gives some completely unsolicited home improvement advice.Our next live podcast is on Saturday, January 14th at 7pm at the UCB Sunset Theatre in Los Angeles. Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark from 'My Favorite Murder' are back for another hour of creepy unsolved murders and even creepier solved ones.

2016 Year In Review in Review  

2016 is almost over. Yes the endless, rotten sh*t hurricane of a year that took awayBowie, Prince and Florence Henderson and gave us Trump, Harambe and the Zika virus is finally drawing to a close. So, to give this b*tch a proper viking funeral, Jack O'Brien is joined by Cracked's Cody Johnston, Daniel O'Brien and Alex Schmidt and comedian Caitlin Gill to review our culture's year-in-review process. They'll also shine a much needed light on some of the more overlooked stories from the year. For example, two-headed sharks keep appearing in our oceans and no one knows why. Even all the world's Bond villains are like, "don't look at us, we thought that was you." And Kim Kardashian! It feels like she's been on every magazine cover for the last 35 years and this year she got kidnapped at gunpoint and it barely raised an eyebrow. What is going on!?To wrap up the conversation, Jack and company share some of their favorite cultural things from the year and report from the future with a preview of our 2017 year in review.Footnotes:Article: Yahoo's Top Search Terms in 2016:  https://goo.gl/iD9lvm Video: Kanye Cancels Show And Slowly Floats Away:  https://goo.gl/P0rOQq Article: The Guardian: Google, Democracy and the Truth About Internet Search:  https://goo.gl/GtOx4J Video: Senator James Inhofe Brings a Snowball to Senate:  https://goo.gl/f3gSeP Article: The Telegraph: Russian Scientists Besieged By Pack of Polar Bears:  https://goo.gl/SWGXaY Article: National Geographic: Two-Headed Sharks Keep Popping Up and No One Knows Why:  https://goo.gl/DF725J Article: Slate: Texas GOP Rep Louie Gohmert Will Save Us From Gay Space Colonies:  https://goo.gl/vax51L Instagram: @major_hoolihan:  https://goo.gl/OMdJQh Video: Samantha Bee: Eddie Eagle:  https://goo.gl/LfLgtI Video: Samantha Bee: Trump Can't Read:  https://goo.gl/pl1Hi9 This episode is brought to you by LifeAfter podcast, Harry’s ( www.harrys.com code: CRACKED), I.T. is Greater Than Sci-Fi podcast, and Loot Crate ( www.lootcrate.com code: GIFTING15).

Movies That Teach Men Horrible Lessons About Sex  

You know how when you watch and old movie and there's a Y2K joke or a WAZZZZUUUP and you think, "man, this hasn't aged well." There's now a whole category of those movies that are just classically heroic dudes being absolute dicks to women. There's even a whole supercut ( https://goo.gl/ejmmDH)   of all the times James Bond hits women. Just Sean Connery slapping women left and right like he's Moe and every Bond girl is Larry and Curly.Now, hear us out on this, but there's a chance that images like this might have been hurting women instead of helping them. Crazy. Maybe normalizing violence against women or showing Harrison Ford literally whipping ( https://goo.gl/QRB2Gw)   Kate Capshaw into kissing him have given men unrealistic ideas about how things like consent work.This week Jack O'Brien brings on Carmen Angelica, Jason Pargin (aka David Wong) and Katy Stoll to talk about the modern-day minefield of consent, what movies have been getting wrong about it, why it's so easy for guys to get defensive about it and a female perspective on why it's so damn important.Footnotes:Carmen Angelica Twitter: https://goo.gl/ATcFbz Katy Stoll Twitter: https://goo.gl/FzYPCG Jason Pargin Twitter: https://goo.gl/pNcIwx Article: Cracked: 7 Reasons So Many Guys Don't Understand Sexual Consent: https://goo.gl/cNurtf Video: Cracked: How To Know If A Girl is DTF: https://goo.gl/bkx5dS Video: Han and Leia's First Kiss: https://goo.gl/HbzMm0 Article: Cracked: 5 Things Women Want Most: https://goo.gl/WsEPiR Article: Cracked: Everything A Woman Should Know Before She's Groped: https://goo.gl/pcyEbj Article: Cracked: 5 Ways Modern Men Are Trained To Hate Women: https://goo.gl/UJtzh Article: New York Times: Nurse in V-J Day Photo Dies: https://goo.gl/KFxJci Article: Vice: I Want a Feminism Class for Boys: https://goo.gl/7YUFf1 This episode is brought to you by I.T. is Greater Than Sci-Fir ( www.VMware.com/radius/scifi ), Foot Cardigan ( www.footcardigan.com code: HOLIDAY16), The Bouqs ( www.bouqs.com code: CRACKED), and Indochino ( www.indochino.com code: CRACKED).

Lives Trump Has Promised To Ruin In His First 100 Days  

In the past few weeks, we've written about not panicking, why you should absolutely panic, and just about everything in between when it comes to the Trump presidency. One thing we haven't quite touched on yet is how real life actual people will be affected by the changes he promised to make during his campaign. One thing Trump already promised to do is repeal an Obama executive order called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA.  DACA allows children who were brought here illegally (keyword: children) to gain somewhat-legal status; protection from deportation, a social security card, in exchange for staying out of trouble and being an active part of the workforce. These are law-abiding, tax-paying young adults whose home country for all intents and purposes is America. A lot of them don't even know the know the language spoken in their country of origin. The shittiest thing is these people might be the first to be deported because they had the unmitigated gall to actively try to live in the United States legally.Robert Evans and Tom Reimann grab the reigns of the podcast this week and have conversations with a potential victim of the removal of DACA, a transgender woman whose medications may no longer be covered, and an army vet whose parents are immigrants to talk about the scary world they've been suddenly thrust into. Later a British journalist joins to talk about the parallels to Brexit and why we might soon see fascist vs. anti-fascist fighting in the streets, and how it could look.If your life has been concretely or irrevocably changed by the new administration, we want to hear your story.

14 Psych Myths We Learned From Movies That Are Totally False  

It's pretty safe to say that after years of Sherlock Holmes adaptations and countless CBS crime procedurals (he was the supreme leader of a cult, but now he's leading the Supreme Court!) most people with a pretty steady diet of TV and movies think they're pretty good armchair psychologists.If you learn of a prison riot on the news, you'll cite the Stanford prison experiment and claim that we're all just a baton and a uniform away from turning into monsters. If the news later reports of a man who stabbed his mother, you'll find a Freudian explanation for the crime that speaks of Oedipal repressed sexuality and the phallic nature of stabbings. Bad news: turns out everything you learned about psychology from the shiny little box in the center of your living room isn't totally accurate. Not only do movies and TV shows take giant liberties with how psychology works, the psych field itself has a hard time getting out of its own way: studies can be biased for multiple reasons, the replication crisis impedes the verification of discoveries and news outlets only report on the grabbiest psych headlines and and skew the truth.So on this week's podcast, we're putting a bunch of psych myths in a straight jacket, tossing them in a padded room and throwing away the key. Cracked's Jack O'Brien, Daniel O'Brien and Michael Swaim are joined by Peter McGraw, an expert in behavioral science and a marketing and psychology professor at the University of Colorado Boulder. They dispel pop-psych stories like the Milgram experiment, power posing and the Mozart effect.Also make sure to buy tickets to our next LIVE podcast taping on Saturday, December 10th at the UCB Sunset Theatre in Los Angeles, California.

Dispelling Every Space Myth You Learned In 7th Grade Science  

Believe it or not, Matthew McConaughey's thesis (from behind a bookshelf inside a black hole) that love is the most powerful force in the universe isn't the most scientifically accurate thing Hollywood has offered us lately. It should come as no surprise that movies take a lot of liberties with astrophysics and what is possible or impossible in the realm of outer space. Like, sending up a crew of men less qualified than Donald Trump (too soon?) to blow up an asteroid? That's probably not in NASA's Plans A through "we ran out of letters" of how to stop a meteor on a collision course with Earth. Even in more fantastical movies like the Star Wars or Star Trek films, you just get very inadequate image in your head of how space works. Take asteroid belts, for example. It's a belt! Made of asteroids! Asteroids as far as the eye can see! You can't safely pilot your ship through them because there are just so many damn asteroids! I've had it with these motherf**king asteroids on this motherf**king belt! We're sorry to say that's now how the asteroid belt works at all. The average distance between bodies in the asteroid belt is 600,000 miles, which is more than double the distance between the Earth and the Moon. So traveling through the asteroid belt is less dodging asteroids like Han Solo and more, "we passed through the asteroid belt?" To dispel some more myths about how space works, Jack O'Brien and Alex Schmidt are joined by Dr. Farah Alibay, a real life scientist at JPL who gets to play with styrofoam models of planets all day and is currently working on a mission that's trying to scoop a 2o-ton boulder off an asteroid, which is as cool as it sounds. Footnotes: Farah Alibay Bio : https://goo.gl/iM4NI7 Podcast: How NASA Was Born Out of Magic Loving, Orgy Having Nerds : https://goo.gl/sbSjcR  Video: To Scale - The Solar System : https://goo.gl/yxUggj GIF: Jupiter's Surface in Motion : https://goo.gl/BEUaJz Video: Pigeons in Space : https://goo.gl/H3Anrr Video: Spiders in Space : https://goo.gl/VrQQkJ  Video: Russian Meteor Reaction : https://goo.gl/R6WKTA Image Gallery: Cupola Module on the ISS : https://goo.gl/IJUO5U Article: The Drake Equation : https://goo.gl/rYZVzF Article: Myths Everyone Believes About Space (Thanks To Movies) : https://goo.gl/H0WiLF Article: Things About Space You're Picturing Almost Exactly Wrong : https://goo.gl/qDDpgn Article: Reasons Space Travel Will Always Suck : https://goo.gl/VfNZ Article: Reasons Life in Space Sucks (That Sci-Fi Doesn't Show You) : https://goo.gl/jNuONd Article: The Most Mind-Blowing Things Ever Discovered in Space : https://goo.gl/XztW9 Article: Real Planets Way Weirder Than Anything in Science Fiction : https://goo.gl/Rb6Yy6 Article: Mind-Blowing Things Found in Our Own Solar System : https://goo.gl/Azquk This episode is brought to you by Squarespace and MVMT Watches.

7 Things To Do In A Time Machine (Other Than Killing Hitler)  

Scenario: you've got a time machine and you only like two things in this life: eatin' breakfast and killin' Nazis, and you've already eaten breakfast. Your obvious next step is to travel to April 20th,1889 and throw baby hitler down a well and then blow up the well,  right? Or is there something better you could do with your time?The whole 'would you kill baby Hitler' thought experiment has been a surprisingly prevalent pop-culture moral question at dinner parties and bad games of Cards Against Humanity. Even Jeb Bush weighed in with his thoughts back in a simpler time when he thought he could be president. His answer, by the way, was, "hell yeah!" ( https://goo.gl/IzBaxA ).This got us thinking, what would be some other moments in history to travel back to and change one thing? One answer might be incredibly simple: November 8th, 2016. Who wouldn't go back in time to stop the events of last Tuesday? Only time will tell if that day becomes one of the giant crossroads in the slow forward march of history.So today Jack O'Brien and Alex Schmidt are posing that question to our five comedian guests: Steven Wilbur, Riley Silverman, Caitlin Gill, Blake Wexler and Eric Lampaert. When would you go in history to change one thing, what would it be and why?Footnotes:Alex Schmidt on Twitter: https://goo.gl/oF6OFj Steven Wilbur on Twitter: https://goo.gl/CSBfaF Riley Silverman on Twitter: https://goo.gl/ipJ8TX Caitlin Gill on Twitter: https://goo.gl/HblhwS Blake Wexler on Twitter: https://goo.gl/hBY7tL Eric Lampaert on Twitter: https://goo.gl/b70FTt Biography.com: About Assassination of Franz Ferdinand: https://goo.gl/1rRB5D Smithsonian: How One Man Accidentally Killed The Oldest Tree Ever: https://goo.gl/vuVg8r " William Tecumseh Sherman: In The Service Of My Country": https://goo.gl/OobZ9h Radiolab: Be Careful What You Plan For: https://goo.gl/UwvO4w This episode is brought to you by Indochino, Loot Crate, and Wondery.

What The F**K Just Happened? Election Autopsy  

Donald Trump will be the 45th President of the United States of America. It's going to be okay. Sit down, have a cookie, breathe into this bag and put on your mandatory 'Make America Great Again' baseball cap. We'll survive this, right?Despite the sun coming up in the morning and life seemingly going on like normal, the world might've been forever changed last night. So we needed to break the little glass box, pull the lever and record an emergency podcast. Jack O'Brien is joined by Jason Pargin (aka David Wong) to make sense of what happened at the polls last night, why we should've seen it coming from a mile away and what we can actively do to prevent this from happening again. As Jason says on the site today, "Do the opposite of Panic. Work through the problem." It'll all be okay.And if we're still alive this weekend , make sure to catch the next LIVE taping of The Cracked Podcast, this Saturday, November 12th at 7pm at the UCB Sunset Theatre in Los Angeles, CA. Jack O'Brien, Daniel O'Brien and Michael Swaim will be joined by an expert in psychology to talk about some of the psychological myths everyone seems to believe: like Rorschach tests (sorry, they don't work), middle child syndrome (not real); and depression (totally real, but antidepressants might not actually work very well).

Why A Second Civil War Is Frighteningly Possible  

"Our way of life here is about nine meals away from anarchy." That's a quote from retired Marine Colonel David Couvillon, who governed the Wasit province of Iraq during the US occupation and clearly a man who has never seen the Cracked office when our daily lunch of filet mignon and caviar is fifteen minutes late. His experiences in Iraq mean he knows a thing or two about modern political unrest and civil war, which makes that quote even more terrifying.As you might've heard, there's an election tomorrow (if you're reading this day it's coming out), and no matter what the outcome, a portion of the country is going to feel like they've had it stolen from them. Matt Bevins, the Governor of Kentucky, has already promised that, "blood will be shed" if Hillary wins and there's no doubt real people are taking promises like these to heart.So how likely is it that America falls into a second civil war? What would that look like? That's what we're asking Cracked's Robert Evans and Teresa Lee on this episode of The Cracked Podcast. They'll explain to us that violent unrest on American soil is a lot more possible than you think and that it wouldn't be North vs. South or Red vs. Blue, but a war fought on thousands of different sides.Also, make sure to catch the next LIVE taping of The Cracked Podcast, this Saturday, November 12th at 7pm at the UCB Sunset Theatre in Los Angeles, CA.

Cracked Book Club: Kurt Vonnegut's Little-Known Novel  

You're probably familiar with Kurt Vonnegut's required reading, or rather the Kurt Vonnegut books your high school English teacher required you to read. 'Slaughterhouse-Five,' 'Cat's Cradle,' and maybe 'Breakfast of Champions' were rays of satirical sunlight in your curriculum between long stretches of Jane Austen and Herman Melville (both great authors, but booooooring). But what about his other 12 novels and the dozens of short stories and other works you're not familiar with?The Cracked Podcast is going to mix it up this week with an introduction to our new Vonnegut book club, a brand new podcast with Alex Schmidt and Michael Swaim, the Kurt Vonneguys. Once a month, Alex and Michael will work through the Vonnegut library, dissecting the recurring themes and characters, highlighting some amazing Kurt-isms and providing a general overview of Kurt's work as the connective tissue to modern sci-fi.In this week's episode, Alex and Michael cover Vonnegut's overlooked first novel, 'Player Piano,' a satirical '1984'-esque warning about the horrors of automation. When you're through, you can check out episode two of Kurt Vonneguys here ( https://goo.gl/dtD9Qz ), where they look at Vonnegut's masterwork, 'The Sirens of Titan.'

Trump Country: What the Media Doesn't Want You To Know  

You thought it would disappear before the Iowa primary. You thought it would surely never happen when its tax returns were released. You definitely thought it was going away as it drove past you on an 'Access Hollywood' tour bus. But it's finally here. We're doing a Trump podcast! Please hide your women and children.We've actually kind of skirted around Trump a lot in the last year. We talked about the class divide in America, how it's not necessarily driven by money and how the Donald personifies the hopes and desires of the "lower class". We even talked about narcissism as America's mental disorder, symbolized again by king narcissist himself, Donald J. Trump.So this week, Crooked Jack O'Brien is joined by Lyin' Jason Pargin (aka David Wong) in hopefully our final Trumpcast. They take one last look at Mr. Tinyfingers by looking at the 40% or so of people who are voting for him in a couple weeks no matter what. It's easy to pass them off as toothless rednecks, racist uncles and cartoonish extras from Daily Show segments, but they are real people who didn't come to support Trump out of nowhere. This cultural shift has been hiding in plain sight and the only problem was the left hadn't even bothered to look. By really dissecting the reasons for this social chasm, we'll prove that even the craziest of Trump supporters should actually be listened to, no matter how orange and absurd their political mouthpiece is.Footnotes:Cracked: How Half of America Lost Its F**king Mind: https://goo.gl/KBJs5W Cracked Podcast: The 11 Nations of America: https://goo.gl/dTJnm4 Cracked Podcast: Why Class in America Isn't Just About Income: https://goo.gl/4juPht 2012 County-by-County Election Map: https://goo.gl/EKH1xb Map of County-by-County Economic Growth: https://goo.gl/u3vqyo This episode is brought to you by Harry’s and Adam and Eve.

Dark Secrets from the Teacher's Lounge  

Did you ever have the sneaking suspicion that when your history teacher rolled out the old A/V cart for movie time that he was completely hungover? Or that that one teacher who seemed to hate you on a molecular level was giving you bad grades on purpose? Chances are you were right and we have the evidence to prove it: full admissions of guilt from actual teachers. Suck it, Mr. McKinley!Yes, we got real (and anonymous) teachers to come on the podcast and dish the dirt about the real behind-the-scenes of this supposedly squeaky-clean profession. Spoiler alert: teachers are all hot messes.Interviewing our panel of masked and maybe inebriated educators, Jack O'Brien is joined by Cracked's Soren Bowie and Daniel O'Brien as well as Andrew Orvedahl and Maria Thayer from truTV's hilarious show 'Those Who Can't'. They share some all-too-common stories about teachers sleeping with their students, some tips for spotting the teacher who's secretly living at the school and why the teachers who instruct the youngest grades are the most likely to be drunk. Catch 'Those Who Can't' Thursdays on truTV.

The 2nd Annual Cracked Podcast Halloween Spooktacular  

Last Halloween ( https://goo.gl/Eu1CJU ) we spooked you with  a melange of real-life horror stories that had little explanation. There was the dead girl who was found in a water tower above the hotel where she went missing. Security tapes were inconclusive, except for one minor detail: it appeared as if she was hiding and running away from...absolutely nothing. Was it a ghost? An inter-dimensional monster? A coked-up Harry Potter in his invisibility cloak? We have no idea. Scary.There was also the story of Major Henry Rathbone, the unfortunate fellow who took the invitation of Abraham Lincoln to see a play at Ford's Theater. Rathbone was so wracked by guilt over Lincoln's death that he straight-up turned into Jack Nicholson in 'The Shining' and slaughtered his whole family. Horrifying.So in anticipation of All Hallow's Eve, Jack O'Brien is joined by first time co-host Nick Mundy as well as Cracked's Carmen Angelica and Josh Sargent and comedians Eric Lampaert, Ryan Singer and Anna Seregina to share more macabre and strange stories that actually happened. They'll discuss the thousands of missing people in our national parks and why the government may be covering it up, the French impostor who killed his entire family, the scary clowns that are tormenting America right now, the French Jack the Ripper and the famous serial killer H.H. Holmes, who may be the actual Jack the Ripper.Also, you can see us on Saturday, October 29th at the Now Hear This podcast festival in Anaheim, California.

Why Science Has Really Basic Stuff Wrong About Humans  

How many times a week do you see someone posting a headline to Facebook with a ridiculous scientific claim about your health? '9 out of 10 Doctors Say You Should Stop Exercising,' 'New Report Shows Milk Prevents Cancer,' 'New Study Shows Milk Is Pure Poison, Stop Drinking Milk Or Else Everyone You Know Will Die!' If you're like us, you probably don't even pay attention to them anymore because the results are so fluid and often contradictory. Tell us now– are eggs good for you? You have no idea. Yes, but not the yolks? Who the hell knows anymore?There's a reason why so many studies about human health and behavior are so unpredictable, and you may not be happy with the answer. It's because studying humans is freaking impossible, and that's never going to change. When you're studying people, there's an endless amount of incalculable variables that make reaching a conclusion a futile undertaking. And even if you control for as many factors as you can think of, you still might not be able to account for your subjects' genetics or the very likely chance that they're just lying to you. "Oh, my diet? Yeah, I eat 2 salads a day, no dressing, and a plain cut of grilled chicken for dinner. I definitely didn't drive through McDonalds on the way here and order a #3 with a Dr. Pepper, no pickles."In conclusion, don't trust anything you read or hear ever, or do, because science doesn't really know what it's doing. On this week's episode Cracked editor-in-chief Jack O'Brien is joined by executive editor Jason Pargin (aka David Wong) to talk about how and why science fails us in this regard and why you should probably still be flossing.Also, you can see us on Saturday, October 29th at the Now Hear This podcast festival in Anaheim, California.

Why The Best Treatment for PTSD May Be An Illegal Drug  

Psychedelics, maaaaan! Gateway to the inside of your miiiiiiiind! Enemy of the maaaaan, maaaaan! Also, a thing that's been around for so long in human history, we don't even have an accurate date for when our ancestors started doing them. They've just been, for all we know, a common way to explore, escape and seek spiritual oneness for hundreds of thousands of years.Some great stuff has been conceived of while on psychedelics: while on LSD, Francis Crick conceived of the double-helix shape of DNA, Steve Jobs cites LSD as one of the major influences of his life's work, and some biblical scholars think the Bible may have been written with the aid of some magic mushrooms. So why does the government hate the stuff? Especially as more research is coming out that says that psilocybin (the active ingredient in mushrooms) does wonders for the terminally ill and MDMA may be the key to curing PTSD.On this week's podcast Jack O'Brien enlists the help of comic Shane Mauss and Cracked editor Robert Evans to find out. First Jack and Shane examine some of the medicinal effects of psychedelics, from mushrooms to DMT to MDMA, and talk about how America's war on drugs is prohibiting important research into these areas. Later, Robert Evans calls in to discuss how some ancient cultures got high and how an individual's reaction to drugs may not be chemical, but cultural.Also, make sure to come see our THREE live shows this October!First, at 9pm on Thursday, October 6th at the UCB Sunset Inner Sanctum, Jack O'Brien and Daniel O'Brien take a behind-the-scenes look at America's most under-appreciated profession: teachers.

Stupid Lies From Pop Culture That Everybody Believes  

We all know Rome wasn't built in a day. But in the fake Hollywood adaptation, "Rome Wasn't Built in a Day," it's probably built over the course of a short montage set to peppy music, where it feels like it's built in 20 minutes.That's one of the subtle lies movies and TV imprint on our minds- that monumental things can be achieved in relatively short periods of time or with relatively little effort. Doc Brown hits his head and comes up with the idea for a time machine, and the hardest part is sourcing plutonium from a crew of gullible Libyan terrorists. This myth of invention affects how we look at history too. In our minds, Thomas Edison is a guy who just pulled the idea for the light bulb out of thin air (or from about 3 inches above his head, right after he thought of it), but he's just the guy who happened to invent the best one.These recurring myths are what we're talking about today. Jack O'Brien is joined by Cracked's Jason Pargin (aka David Wong) and Alex Schmidt to talk about this invention myth, why we mistakenly think the President controls the economy, how we assume that there are real-life criminals like movie criminals and why a bomb with a timer on it is the stupidest idea in the world.Also, make sure to come see our THREE live shows this October!First, at 9pm on Thursday, October 6th at the UCB Sunset Inner Sanctum, Jack O'Brien and Daniel O'Brien take a behind-the-scenes look at America's most underappreciated profession: teachers.

Screw Sully: 7 True Stories That Would Make Better Movies  

Ahh September, the leaves are changing into autumnal shades of yellow, red and orange, the air has a chilly bite, and movie theaters are being inundated with 'Based on a True Story' Oscar-bait. This month alone we've got 3 true story movies that shouldn't have much suspense to them: 'Sully' (the plane lands); 'Deepwater Horizon' (oil gets everywhere); and 'Snowden' (dude's in Russia).We've got a little hint for you, Hollywood: how about releasing a movie that isn't about something that happened, like, six seconds ago? History is full of amazing true stories and you're giving us a movie about the most unceremonious, bloodless and explosion-less crash in the history of aviation? Pshhh.This week we've got seven true stories for you that we promise would make better movies than 'Snowden': from the mad warring paleontologists who would rather burn down a museum than see each other gain a modicum of success, to the 10th century Slavic saint who murdered just everybody. Jack O'Brien and Michael Swaim co-host live from the UCB Sunset Theatre in Los Angeles with Cracked guests Carmen Angelica, Tom Reimann and Alex Schmidt, and guest comedians Lindsay Adams, Sunah Bilsted, Eli Olsberg and Steven Wilber.Jack is also joined by Cracked writer and researcher Evan Caris to talk about a major world event that is always underserved in film: World War I.Footnotes:Salon Interview with Atilla Ambrus, The Whiskey Robber: http://goo.gl/FLsxwZBallad of the Whiskey Robber: https://goo.gl/vxlFswCracked: 6 People With WTF Secret Lives Absolutely Nobody Saw Coming: https://goo.gl/XBXQ7cBiography of Julie d'Aubigny: http://goo.gl/c6fyrw'60 Minutes' Clip with Jack Barsky: https://goo.gl/mZxy4LBiography of 'The Bone Wars': https://goo.gl/8mpfQUBiography of Olga of Kiev: https://goo.gl/XxM08MBiography of Sarah Jacob, The Fasting Girl: https://goo.gl/wlG4rqTom Reimann on Twitter: https://goo.gl/wgHhK2Carmen Angelica on Twitter: https://goo.gl/B7W9JRSteven Wilber on Twitter: https://goo.gl/4UNvFfLindsay Adams on Twitter: https://goo.gl/1L02UEAlex Schmidt on Twitter: https://goo.gl/y5P6YoEli Olsberg on Twitter: https://goo.gl/3eVRelSunah Bilsted on Twitter: https://goo.gl/3VgjE6This episode is sponsored by Casper Mattresses and Blue Apron.
