Merry Christmas all!
I needed a MP3 to upload in order to get some practice in how to get an podcast out there. This is part 1. Part 2 will be getting it onto iTunes.
I had long wanted the name The Legion of Reason for a podcast and recorded a solo episode in October of 2010. I start off looking at homeopathy and then moved on to a something that really, REALLY pissed me off. CTV Calgary News – notoriously bad for reporting woo as if it were evidence-based medicine – presented a piece on Nambudripad’s allergy elimination technique. I criticize one of the most egregious examples of irresponsible reporting. Not only is woo being presented as if it were an alternative for getting rid of allergies, there was no representation of the medical community’s opinion on this.
And I called bullshit.
CTV Calgary News’ atrocious report on NAET (http://calgary NULL.ctv NULL.ca/servlet/an/local/CTVNews/20100506/CGY_Allergy_Food_100506/20100506/?hub=CalgaryHome)
