David discusses bail reform with John Raphling. Even though his new report covers only California, his findings have applicability to all of the USA.

David talks with George Kent, an emeritus professor at the Universityh of Hawai’i, who has long studied and advocated the human right to food. According to him, this includes the right of infants to breastfeed, and his new books, “Governments Push Infant Formula” and “Caring About Hunger” discuss this issues. How is that a man becomes an advocate for breastfeeding, how do governments overtly, covertly and accidentally promote formula over breastfeeding?
David Crowe talks with Desmond Meade about restoring the right of felons in Florida who have completed their sentence (including probation) to vote. But this is not the only right they lose. Desmond served time in his youth for drug and robbery offences, but even after he got his life together, and got a law degree, he cannot practice in the State of Florida. The discussion covers the specifics in Florida, as well as the general situation in the United States where the justice system discourages reintegration into society. For more information on his Florida Rights Restoration Coalition see http://floridarrc.com.
David discusses Shaken Baby Syndrome with “Mary” (not her real name) whose daughter-in-law served 2 years in jail for manslaughter when a Shaken Baby conviction was rammed through, ignoring evidence that the dead baby’s mother was far from a perfect caregiver, and ignoring the possibility of any medical crisis (such as an adverse reaction to a vaccine or medication). Unfortunately, this is not an isolated case, and some caregivers have been punished much more stringently. Yet science is slowly realizing that this syndrome is probably completely imaginary, and that babies that die without external evidence of abuse probably did not die of abuse.
David discusses the diet of indigenous people on the prairies before and after the invasion of Europeans with Philip Brass, a member of Peepeekisis First Nation in Saskatchewan, who works on community health, local food initiatives, traditional practices, and ceremonies.

David talks with Terry Michael, a gay man and journalist, about Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis, known as PrEP. People at-so-called-risk for HIV infection, mainly gay men and black men and women, are supposed to take these toxic medications for life. This has a lot of problems, including the fact that not many healthy people are interested in taking drugs, especially if they know that organ failure is a side effect. Since Terry has worked in politics before, and describes himself as a libertarian Democrat, they also discuss recent political events.

Simpson, Immigration, Globalism, Healthcare, Sweden, Sexual Assault, Vaccines, Julian Assange and more. Despite deep political differences, Celia and David avoid extremetizing. And if you want to know what that means, you will have to listen. Celia’s blog is ‘The Truth Barrier’: http://truthbarrier.com
Recently an Ebola vaccina trial was published with an incredible result — none of the people who were vaccinated came down with Ebola, while quite a few unvaccinated people did. David dissects this trial and by the time he’s finished there’s nothing but a bloody mess left on the floor. The trial is a scientific disaster, sound and fury signifying nothing. You can read the paper from Lancet at: http://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736(16)32621-6/fulltext
David interviews James Lyons-Weiler, author of the book, “The Environmental and Genetic Causes of Autism”. His research indicates that genes can cause greater susceptibility to environmental toxins, such as the mercury and aluminum found in some vaccines, but that genes alone cannot explain the recent explosion in the rate of autism. This interview is part 1 of 2. His blog is at http://jameslyonsweiler.com.
