QAnon Free Zone !

Thank goodness for my weekly refuge of quality science news, critical thinking! The crew makes plenty of time for exposing quackery, anti-vaccine drivel, ‘woo’ fads, with the occasional stick in the eye directed toward the always angry Trump supporting incel crowd. Ignore the angry Trump trolls here who confuse political ideology with gross incompetence. It’s as “ left leaning” as the idea that the earth orbits the sun; just a fact, you don’t need to agree for it to be true.

I love the whole crew and really appreciate the sense of fun and camaraderie they bring to every topic. Pay no attention to the misogynistic Cara haters; she’s one of the best science educators on Dr. Novella’s excellent panel. If I had one small suggestion, I would love to see more short form interviews from guests promoting skeptic or science based books. Nothing in depth, leave that to Terry Gross of Fresh Air.

Keep up the quality gang and thank you for keeping me sane in a world of PizzaGate, homeopathy and energy crystal healing! Time for my non GMO, FairTrade, Organic, Gluten- Dairy- Nutrient Free lunch- a glass of H2O.

Once Again

Once again, Cara can't resist the temptation of infuse the show with social justice warriorism. This time at the very end, sneaking in at the last minute what an unjust, misogynistic society America is. In spite of the fact that Evan's quote was abot the amazing progress we've made with women in qcadedmia. Not good enough for Cara, though.

Please edit

I appreciate the information and opinions but end up skipping through much of each episode because it points are belabored. Respect our time.
