TheESP – Ep. #244 – Go Women in Science!

Download

This week we start by celebrating that several women received the Nobel Prize this year. Well deserved and a good trend! We also look at the latest Global warming news delivered by Copernicus. We may need to find another planet to live on… In this week in history we get nostalgic about QED which was supposed to happen this week, but hey, we have many fond memories from previous years to look back on!

Then we dive into the news:

  • New pre-bunking online game GoViral to be used to counter COVID-misinformation
  • Surveys in different countries reveal many young people lack basic knowledge about the Holocaust
  • Homeopathy no longer exclusive to pharmacies in Norway
  • Latest attempts to legitimize homeopathy in Austria
  • 46% of Hungarians would not get vaccinated against COVID
  • The most compelling evidence for the existence of Nessie yet?
  • Most ambitious climate law voted on by European Parliament
  • EarthShot Prize for solutions to global climate issues

Enjoy!

Oh my god, I had no idea this podcast existed until today (I just typed sceptic’s podcast into google to see what popped up), but THANK YOU! Thank you for doing what you do. Thank you for existing, and debunking, and making me laugh. It’s so nice to know that there are nice, friendly, rational people in this world. Keep up the good fight my fellow sceptics.
