Infectious Myth – Alison Wolf – How the Rise of Working Women has Created a Far Less Equal World – 06.21.16

British author Alison Wolf (Baroness Wolf of Dulwich) discusses how our desire to give women equal opportunities at higher echelons of society has not helped their sisters at lower societal levels in her 2013 book, “The XX Factor”. Is an emphasis on equal pay making women more satisfied with their life? Do the lives of elite women have more in common with men than with the majority of working women? Where have women’s lives improved, and where have they not? And, of course, what about the sex industry?

Infectious Myth – Steven Naifeh on Vincent Van Gogh – 06.14.16

David interviews Steven Naifeh, and a Pullitzer Prize winner and co-author of a major biography of Vincent van Gogh, about the life of this artist. Vincent never achieved acceptance of either himself, or his art, during his life, even though now he is considered one of the superstars of the art world. There is a certain morbid fascination in examining a life that surely was miserable most of the time, yet produced some of the world’s most beautiful art. His personal problems included dysfunctional relationships with women, including his mother, and his few lovers, and also with his family, that kept him on an allowance, seemingly as long as he kept stayed far, far away. Even syphilis enters the picture and, of course, David doesn’t accept the infectious myth about that.

Infectious Myth – Zika Myths with Jim West – 02.23.16

Jim West discusses Zika virus with David Crowe. How the story of the virus originated. Why a virus that was never blamed for anything other than mild symptoms before was suddenly blamed for microcephaly in infants. What is microcephaly, how frequent is it normally and how is it that pesticides, vaccines and GMO mosquitoes not being considered as possible causes? You will learn a whole lot more about Zika in this episode compared with listening to or reading the fear-mongering and misdirections of the mainstream media and mainstream public health organizations like W.H.O.

“Erratum: Jim West referred to a monkey being kept in an environment of 104F. Actually it was the monkey’s body temperature. 104F is the upper range of the normal body temperature for this species, so was not even a fever.”
