No facts presented

This podcast does very little to support a “pro vax” stance. There are no facts, studies, or statistics presented. Even when a doctor or scientist is interviewed it’s all fluff. They don’t present any substantial information to back up their claims. If you’re looking for a podcast of opinions, then this is for you. If you’re looking for actual science, this is not for you. Very disappointing.

Where is your information?

The opposing argument (as always) is continuously backed by research. This? Opinions. PURE opinions. The other argument at least states, “it’s up to the parent if they want to vaccinate, and I won’t judge if they do”. This? “VACCINATE YOUR CHILDREN”, that is all.

Disappointing

I agree with the reviewers who complain that there is little substance to this podcast. I've just listened to a few episodes, so I may have missed it, but what I heard was mostly generalizations not backed up by any specific research findings. The hosts often said that the internet is full of "misinformation," but they did not specify exactly what they are refering to, and they did not point to specific studies that show it (whatever it is) is wrong. There is very little nuance either. The hosts seem to think that they are smarter then anyone who has a different opinion, but they fail to actually demonstrate that they are rigorous thinkers who have a strong command of the relevant science. Better podcasts include "The Vaccine Conversation" and even "Highwire." Undoubtedly, the hosts of Vax Talk think these other podcasts are full of "misinformation." Listen to both sides, do some fact checking, and judge for yourself.
