https://theleagueofnerdsradio.files.wordpress.com/2016/10/1465.mp3   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.

I promise the vid this has been cut from (Myles vs katharine hamnett) will be full of science and less bitching. Also my hair looks awful :( think I need a hair cut. Katharine Hamnett’s Original [...]
