This week we interviewed award-winning blogger and paranormal investigator Hayley Stevens. We talked about becoming a skeptic after believing, how applying the right way of thinking and the best methods can help us understand how people think, what she thinks of Guerrilla Skepticism on Wikipedia and what the nicest approach to debating people might be.
This week we’re back with the regular segments discussing lots of different topics ranging from Chickenpox, SpaceX, Newton and Fake News to what happened #LastNightInSweden after all, how Bild is fighting falsehoods, March for Science across the world, Global Warming denial, Paleo diet, Metro in Sweden, What Doctor’s Don’t Tell You and more.
This week we interviewed Florent Martin, who’s one of the founders of the French organisation Observatoire Zététique that investigates unusual claims in Grenoble and all over France.
On this week’s episode we talk about the antivax movement and what we can do about it, then move on to talking about Derren Browns work, whether fortune tellers will be out of Hungarian mainstream TV any time soon, what the problem is with the simplification of science, how Natural News got removed from Google’s indexes, what happened #LastNightInSweden, how some of the reportings of rape attacks in Germany turned out to be fake and a Hungarian quack that finally got convicted.
Our logical fallacy of the week is ‘Appeal to the stone’ and the Really Wrong price goes to Polish Minister of Health Konstanty Radziwill for claiming that fighting smog is not a priority health issue in Poland.
This episode is entirely dedicated to one topic, which is the latest wrongdoings of the antivaccination campaign, namely the screenings of the pseudo-documentary “Vaxxed – From Cover-up to Catastrophy”.
Our guests, with whom we discussed this issue were Michael Marshall, project director at the Good Thinking Society and activist Fiona O’Leary, founder of Autistic Rights Together.
