I know this is a paranormal podcast that takes on all claims of all things paranormal but this is also a skeptical podcast so I think any topic relating to skepticism and extraordinary claims are worthy of examination. There is one place that is ripe for skeptical inquiry and that one place is television commercials. If you want to sharpen your skeptical skills, just look at your average TV commercial promising some outrageous results and examine it in detail. At the end of the day, TV commercials are designed to do one thing and that one things is to sell you crap. Their main motivation is to get you to part with your hard earned dollars. I ran across an article on Gizomdo looking into the Brain Game Lumosity which allowed me to dig deeper into the issue and present the findings to you dear listeners.
