Podcast: Hunting Humbug 101 Tutorial 25: Appeal to Authority

Sorry for the delay in this podcast. We were busy. We're very important people you know. In this podcast we look at the fallacy Appeal to Authority.  It is arguably one of the hardest to identify - or rather, easiest to Red Flag Faux Pas . We also discuss the most vile, sickening, morally bankrupt and inane version of this fallacy - Appeal to Celebrity. Examples from 9-11 troofers, anthropogenic climate change, Monty Python and Team America
