I sat down and talked to Dave Brodbeck about the anti-vax movement and had a fun discussion about vaccines and autism, between which there is no connection according to the scientific literature. Dave is an associate professor of psychology at Algoma University in Sault Ste. Marie, ON, and has an autistic son. I was a bit nervous, or just under the influence of nervous energy. I think this will be a topic worth revisiting for many more of the conspiracy angles that surround it.
PS--Remember, last week's episode does not exist.
