Download

This week we talk about that alt-med and antivaxxers have been visible on TV and how a town in Austria had to change its rather unfortunate name. We celebrate the anniversary of the Hungarian Skeptics and then we get into the news:

  • New Brexit craze – Vaccine approval sped up because no EU to hold us back
  • Bibliometric analysis of global research into SCAM and COVID-19
  • Former space security chief goes mental about alleged aliens
  • What’s with the phallic symbols everywhere?
  • Swedish health regions have spent 28 MEUR on weighted blankets
  • John Maddox prizes announced TODAY
  • Das Goldene Brett – finalists announced
  • Follow-up: Influencer selling fish oil as covid treatment found guilty
  • New series of videos: A scientist in the supermarket

Then the Really Wrong award goes to all the religious exemptions to covid restrictions.

Enjoy!
