The hilarious Stacey Prussman talks about the life of a comedian, her struggles including eating disorder, her movies and much more. Mechanical doping is the new black – kind of. Professional riders – yes think Tour De France have turned to small hidden motors that help propel the bike so they can recover. Maybe pro cyclists have had enough of needling each other. Nonetheless, this new method of gaining an edge has the attention of officials. Lance Armstrong…busted completely. Usain Bolt…busted and crushed hearts. When will the human capacity alone be enough? “The Dog Who Saved Pleasantville” could save your child from having to go to sugar rehab. Authors, Corrine and Jack Wlody (Team Wlody) have created a tale that speaks volumes to parents and provides great insight for kids who think sugar is just like all food…good for you and yummy (cue obnoxious buzzer sfx). WRONG! This warm tale is about smart food choices, family and the importance of community. https://store.bookbaby.com/book/The-Dog-Who-Saved-Pleasantville
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.
David talks with British GP Malcolm Kendrick about the many myths of modern medicine, starting with the cholesterol myth and the recommendation for a low fat diet. Later the conversation veers into other myths that allopathic medicine promulgates but that Kendrick opposes.
In the second and concluding part of the discussion regarding the death of David Stephan’s son Ezekiel, he discusses the trial, and particularly the reasons why health authorities might want to go after him, a parent who doesn’t vaccinate, and the son of a man whose health supplement company won a war with Health Canada once it was shown to have benefits in people with psychiatric conditions often treated with pharmaceutical drugs.
David Crowe interviews David Stephan, whose second child Ezekiel died in 2012. David, and his wife Collet, were charged with the death, and were eventually convicted of “failing to provide the necessities of life”. David Stephan explains why they are appealing this conviction, through describing the last few weeks of his son’s life, up to the point at which the ambulance and hospitals took charge of the boy. Part 2 of this discussion will describe Ezekiel’s death in hospital, the subsequent court hearings and the ongoing appeal, and the possible reasons why the government and medical treatment system of the Province of Alberta was so anxious to blame the parents for this unfortunate death.
David speaks with retired professor Bruce Alexander about addiction. Like former guest Marc Lewis, Alexander also believes that addiction is not a disease, and certainly can’t be fought with a war. His recent book calls it a “poverty of spirit” but, rather than blaming the victim he believes society as a whole is responsible for creating these conditions. He does …
Peter LaVenia, a Green Party candidate, talks about his hypothesis that it is the Democratic Party that is in meltdown, not the Republican party.

There is a transgender bathroom war in the USA, and a transgender pronoun war in Canada. Some transgender or non-binary people do not want to be referred to as ‘he’ or ‘she’ and others refuse to use alternatives, such as ‘they’. This head butting is centered at the University of Toronto, in Canada. David talks with Lee Airton, who has a blog, http://theyismypronoun.com, that discusses why they have chosen ‘they’. While some people have taken rigid, opposing extremes on this issue, it does appear that there is a middle ground.
