Recorded at London Skeptics in the Pub, Martin Robbins of the Guardian’s Lay Science talks about dangerous pseudo-medical practices outside the Western world, from homeopaths in East Africa to flat earthers and anti-vaccine campaigns in Nigeria.
We find out why abortion is brilliant, why maths isn’t immediately profitable but ultimately is, and about an intriguing new play about the dangers of alternative medicine. We also speak to author Mark Stevenson about his book. And much more!
