    Rocks in your Vagina: The Pseudoscience of Gwyneth Paltrow and "Goop"

    This month, Gwyneth Paltrow (and her "wellness" brand Goop) debut a new show on Netflix, but the woo is strong, the stakes are high, and the need for science-based health information is even higher.

    In this broadcast, we explore many claims made by Paltrow, her organization and affiliates, and Seth Andrews speaks with professor Timothy Caulfield, author of the book "Is Gwyneth Paltrow Wrong About Everything?"

    Caulfield's latest article in The Conversation: https://theconversation.com/gwyneth-paltrows-new-goop-lab-is-an-infomercial-for-her-pseudoscience-business-129674

Positive listening

I’ve been listening to the Thinking Atheist for over 3 years now, I’ve been an Atheist since my early teens but kept quiet about my thoughts towards religion, but still went to church once a week in my childhood, my first thoughts of, are these story’s real was about 13 years old when the stories started to sound more magical than fact.
Anyway back the podcast , Seth Andrews is basically the voice of reason to me, not just about religious or none religious beliefs. He has an open outlook to any subjects, listens in depth to his callers and guests and then throws his own content into to the discussion, often with wise and sometimes humorous reply’s 👍
The podcast is interesting every week with a subject to get your teeth into .
Seth Andrews you rock , keep up the great interesting work you are doing.
Thanks Al 🇬🇧
