This week we get a well deserved correction from listener Cyril on how to pronounce Marquis de Sade’s full name and we hear about German teenagers party dangerously in secret in strange locations. Vaccinations in Sweden are picking up but in Hungary there is considerable hesitation against Chinese and and Russian vaccines. The Pope continues to have problems with Germany and also refuses to take responsibility for the tragedies of Canadian Catholic boarding schools. Francis Crick, important but controversial figure contributing to the discovery of the DNA molecule, was born this week in 1916. After that, let’s have a look at the news:

  • Counseling for conspiracy victims
  • Didier Raoult takes legal action against misconduct consultant
  • Right wing party with Sucharit Bhakdi
  • New book out: Maladie de Lyme by Eric Caumes

Lastly, the conspiracy mongers in the “Freedom for Sweden” movement are Really Wrong.

Enjoy!

0:52:53 QUOTE AND FAREWELL

    “If a man, holding a belief which he was taught in childhood or persuaded of afterwards, keeps down and pushes away any doubts which arise about it in his mind, purposely avoids the reading of books and the company of men that call into question or discuss it, and regards as impious those questions which cannot easily be asked without disturbing it—the life of that man is one long sin against mankind.”
    / William Kingdon Clifford (4 May 1845 – 3 March 1879), English mathematician and philosopher. /
