Creationism vs. Science : The Final Showdown!:

If Woo peddlers can gamify social media algorithms using cute cats to sneak quackery into the lives of unsuspecting people, science too can harness the power of felines for good dammit!

Digital Human: Series 16, Episode 2, Snake Oil

One factor of the spread of Snake Oil we didn’t have time to cover in this week’s show (insert subtle show plug here – 

Digital Human: Series 16, Episode 2, Snake Oil) was how lazy scientific journalism grants some credence to quackery and/or pseudoscience. 

Thankfully Myles Power has covered this in a few videos, here is a recent trio of videos on the infamous gay frogs, but his whole channel is worth a look.

Myles was great to have on the show, and his youtube channel is really wonderful. Not only is he good on debunking quacks, he also unravels conspiracy theories, the videos are well researched, and can be fun when he’s not dealing with the darkest of the dark online. Check ‘em out.
