This is the transcript of the introduction for this episode of the Christopher Scott Talk Show Podcast:
How accurate is the groundhog? Why would anyone be interested an a groundhogs prediction of the weather? Maybe we should ask the groundhog if climate change is real. Then we could stop all the bickering. At this point I think more people might be willing to listen to the groundhog. As a matter of fact grab that furry little wood chucker and let's ask him a bunch of questions. If he can predict the weather maybe he can solve this whole Trump, Russia, FBI scandal too. I wonder if he can answer if aliens are real.
So why would anyone want to take weather predictions from a groundhog? It's been going on a long time. Groundhog day started in 1887. I can give you a prediction for the weather. Cold, dreary and miserable. I don't want to give you any false hope. If it turns out better you'll be thanking me. The groundhog is only accurate about 40% of the time. Twice as good as the average weatherman and three time more likely to give you an accurate answer than a politician. That's pretty good when you think about it.
So hit the play button!
