#146.5 – Vaxxed

The League of Nerds


Unfortunately due to some computer problems James’ audio this week got scrambled and we had to use the G+ recording. Sorry, but instead of chucking the episode we decided to release it as a mid week surprise. Myles and James were joined by one of their favourite scientist, C0nc0rdance to talk about the film Vaxxed. Vaxxed is a poor attempt at cashing in on the pain and suffering antivax peddlers have caused. The film centres on the CDC whistle blower and the now retracted study that followed. Needless to say the paper is found wanting on many many levels from crap use of stats to a tiny number of test subjects, almost like the author went out of their way to present a conclusion based on a lie…

My name is Myles Power, and I run the educational YouTube channel, powerm1985. I spend what little free time I have sharing my love of SCIENCE! through home experiments, visiting sites of scientific interest, and angrily ranting at pseudoscience proponents. I am also one of the founding members of the podcast 'The League of Nerds' - which I co-host with James from 'The History of Infection'.
