    Science is supposed to be an unbiased way to uncover nature’s secrets. Through blinded experiments, rigorous peer review and replication—we’ve been told that by using the scientific method we’ll find trustworthy facts. But, with many scientific findings largely regarded as ‘wrong’, is science broken?

Awful. Cherry picked

Obviously cherry picked to support the preselected view of the host, etc. For the randomly chosen ones I made it through* it was easy to switch it around to the other side- in fact, there’s often MORE evidence for the unchosen side. I was appalled by what she ignored in my own field and puzzled by the disproven papers she cited in her support.

Wendy and team of decision makers need to crawl back into their cave and only be allowed out when they accept their responsibility in presenting evidence fairly and accurately. Non-scientists deserve that. Nobody deserves this dreadful, dreadful imitation of a science show.

Note to other reviewers: 1. Sexy Aussie accent be damned. If that's a selling point it's not a good one. 2. The bias Isn't liberal. She comes down hard against veganism, for example.

* Only 20 minutes? I remember them as endless and I listen on ~1.4-1.8 speed with smart space activated on Overcast.
