This episode is entirely dedicated to one topic, which is the latest wrongdoings of the antivaccination campaign, namely the screenings of the pseudo-documentary “Vaxxed – From Cover-up to Catastrophy”.
Our guests, with whom we discussed this issue were Michael Marshall, project director at the Good Thinking Society and activist Fiona O’Leary, founder of Autistic Rights Together.

On this episode we talk about the rise of the antivaccination movement in Europe and interview Polish psychologist, science writer and science educator, Tomasz Witkowski, who’s the author of two very important skeptical books on psychology: ‘Psychology Gone Wrong: The Dark Sides of Science and Therapy’ and ‘Psychology Led Astray: Cargo Cult in Science and Therapy’. He is also one of the founders of the Polish Skeptic Club and a member of the organising committee of the 17th European Skeptics Congress that will be held in Wroclaw, Poland in September 2017.

“Ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge: it is those who know little, not those who know much, who so positively assert that this or that problem will never be solved by science.”
Along with a usual run-through of feedback and events across Europe in the coming week, this episode is dedicated to our interview with former naturopath Britt Hermes who recently received the 2016 Ockham’s Award in the best blog category. You can also listen to two short interviews (with Bruno Van de Casteele from Belgium and Erno and Tommi from Finland) recorded at QED – Question. Explore. Discover. in the middle of October.
