TheESP – Ep. #268 – Papal Pay-cuts and Cheap Wine

Download

 
This week Pontus is still mad at English spelling but we hope our listeners will forgive him. In history René Descartes was born this week, the pope cuts the payroll for his cardinals and we have a Covid-19 update before we check out the news:

  • Court case against SCAM practitioner
  • NEW BOOK – the Cheaters, about Macchiarini and fraudulent research
  • NEW BOOK – The great bazaar of irrational
  • Cheap wine tastes better with a higher price tag
  • Old-growth forest effect in climate mitigation overestimated

The Czech Cardinal and Archbishop of Prague Dominik Duka gets a Really Wrong this week using the pandemic as an excuse to peddle anti-abortion propaganda.

Enjoy!

“Good sense is, of all things among men, the most equally distributed; for every one thinks himself so abundantly provided with it, that those even who are the most difficult to satisfy in everything else, do not usually desire a larger measure of this quality than they already possess.”
 
/ René Descartes (31 March 1596 – 11 February 1650), French-born philosopher, mathematician, and scientist. /
