Episode 5: Myles Power & GMOs

Welcome to Episode 5. myles

Myles is a scientist and YouTube vlogger whose videos focus on having fun with science as well as debunking popular myths and conspiracy theories. Now that he has finally fended off a band of litigious HIV conspiracy theorists and gotten a decent internet connection he came on the show to discuss why GMOs aren’t evil, why Prometheus sucked and how no-one ever gets DNA right on screen.

News:
Bacterial reporters that get the scoop

Nonsense:

FDA considers approval of genetically modified babies
​GMOs could cause ‘irreversible termination of life’ on Earth

The ridiculous and unethical anti-GMO papers we discussed:
The Séralini Affair
Australian pig feed study

Episode 4: Myles Power Vs Censorship (and GMOs)

Welcome to Episode 4. myles


Myles is a scientist and YouTube vlogger whose videos focus on having fun with science and debunking popular myths and conspiracy theories. I had hoped to have him on to discuss the science behind and public opinion of genetically modified organisms but unfortunately the gods of the internet were against us. Between moving home, spotty internet access, mutant monkeys and a series of spurious copyright claims which threatened his channel there was simply no opportunity to record a full episode.

Instead, Myles took time to record a message for you all, answering your questions and telling us about the failed attempts of HIV denialists to have his series debunking their crockumentary, House of Numbers, removed from YouTube. This series has now been restored to YouTube and I recommend you take the time to go to his channel and enjoy what the people behind House of Numbers tried, and failed, to make disappear.
