TheESP – Ep. #248 – Skepti-baby Alert!


Download

This week we first chat a bit about Trump, having covid in your family and an opportunity to talk to Swedish MPs. We also mention the Vienna terror attacks and the Hay Winter Festival. Annika has an exciting announcement regarding increasing the number of skeptics in the world.

In history news we acknowledge the anniversary of the Night of Broken Glass and then Pontus Pokes the Pope for disciplining a Cardinal so old that he does not know what happened.

After a Covid-update we then get into the actual news:

  • Chiropractors don’t like informed consent
  • Does article 61 of Magna Charta allow citizens to disobey COVID-19 regulations?
  • Grandmothers sue government over climate challenge failure
  • How COVID-19 is reshaping the way people trust politicians
  • MedWatch wins federal Consumer Protection Award
  • Update on the last five years of RCTs about homeopathy

Enjoy!

Congrats to Annika! I’ll miss her when she goes on break, but it’s nice to hear such wholesome news on the show. Take care you three, and keep up the good work.
