Episode 8 of my video and podcast series, Salon of the Refused, is now available.
I talk with Alex Berezow, Vice President of Scientific Affairs at the American Council on Science and Health, about misunderstandings and misrepresentations of science in the news. The conversation includes: how DNA ancestry tests are like horoscopes, the fundamental problems with transgender athletes, what the prevailing narratives on left and right get wrong about the opioid epidemic, how the science of nutrition is a victim of its own success, and why if I really wanted to make it in the broadcasting business, I would peddle bogus nutritional supplements.
The podcast is available through iTunes or Google Play, or listen to it here.
