TheESP – Ep. #291 – Broken System, Broken Neck

Download

 

According to chiropractors, broken necks are within “good practice”.

In this episode we catch up on last weekend with Hungaro Con and SkepKon. We also mention last week’s Ig Nobel Prizes and how the ISS does not seem to agree with the Russians any more. The upcoming German election gets a mention and in This Week in Skepticism we discuss the miraculous portrait of Saint Dominic in Soriano, before briefly discussing the Pope’s latest adventures. After that we dig into the news:

  • EUROPE: Failure to follow routine vaccination schedules
  • INTERNATIONAL: Hundreds of medical journals unite to urge climate action
  • GERMANY: No, the government did not stop using COVID-vaccines
  • ICELAND: Largest carbon capture device ever built just became operational
  • ARGENTINA: German MMS salesman arrested

The General Chiropractic Council (the GCC) in the UK gets today’s prize for being Really Wrong, since they think killing a patient is “good practice”.

Enjoy!

    “All that was required to measure the planet was a man with a stick and a brain. In other words, couple an intellect with some experimental apparatus and almost anything seems achievable.”
