Also, it’s time for some #Metoo in the Vatican…

This week we catch up with the fabulous Susan Gerbic whose Guerrilla Skepticism on Wikipedia has hit a fantastic milestone. But we also have a full episode, so we start out by mentioning the Australian and New Zealand Skeptics joint annual convention and then look back at what happen this week in 1459 and Pontus pokes the Poke and his meeting with Joe Biden and the need for him to start believing the abuse victims. Later we get into the news:
• EUROPE / INTERNATIONAL: Record summer impossible w/o Global Climate Change
• FRANCE: Fossil fuel giant Total has known about climate change since 1971
• GERMANY: Report about conspiracy theories ready to download
• ROMANIA: Harder corona restrictions
• SWEDEN: Is Sweden “the most dangerous country in Europe”?
• AUSTRIA: Homeopathy excluded from reimbursed health care treatments
• RUSSIA: Anti-evolution paper finally retracted, 25 years after being debunked
We end with a Really Wrong / Really Right combo regarding a midwife who tried to bring her religion into the workplace.

Enjoy!

    “Critical thinking is essential to make sense of our world, especially with advertisers and politicians all telling us
    loudly that they know best. We need to be able to look at the evidence and work out whether we agree with them.

    Helen Czerski British physicist and oceanographer and television presenter. /
