TheESP – Ep. #415 – Artifact or Arti-fiction?

Download


This week we’ve had some feedback regarding AI – always glad to hear from our listeners! In TWISH we hear about Charles Clermont-Ganneau, famous French archeologist with a flare for spotting fake artifacts. Then we turn to the news:

  • INTERNATIONAL: Fossil forgery – famous specimen shown to be fake, and it is not alone
  • FRANCE: Experts identify Moscow-based disinformation network
  • GREECE: Legalization of same sex marriage

Good news for once! The French National Assembly has adopted a new law aimed at charlatans, and sects or sect leaders who tries to influence their followers to reject science based medicine. We think that is worth a Really Right Award!

Enjoy!
