Don't know if I have the attention span to watch the whole thing. I'll wait for the hightlights on youtube.

A decent start might be good scientific education for everyone. I work with M.Sc. graduates that are into alternative medicine (including homeopathy).

A few years ago here in Wicklow we had a radio station called the Christian channel or Christian Family radio, or something of that ilk, and I know people who tuned in solely on the...
