Episode #119 – Polio, Hungarian Election, and BS Statistics


Become a Patron!


On this Episode:

This week Brian Eggo sits in for Jelena as we talk about Hungarian elections, a medium shocked to discover that people sometimes commit fraud, HIV deniers in Russia, Hans Rosling’s last book and how Swedish authorities have been using bullshit data for years without having a clue.

And of course the Pope gets a mention for getting rid of hell (or did he?).

Plus, we celebrate that QED in Manchester is announced for October with The Skeptics Guide to the Universe crew, George Hrab and Helen Arney!
