Skeptical Thoughts – acupuncture, Dr Oz & ‘aboriginal’ medicine

By Siouxsie Wiles 26/11/2014


I now have a regular radio slot, called Skeptical Thoughts, with Graeme Hill on his RadioLive Weekend Variety Wireless show. Here are links to a few of my recent editions:

Here, I do my bit for Acupuncture Awareness Week (revealing my own sordid history with acupuncture), talked about Dr Oz’s bad week on Twitter and was disgusted by a story from Canada about a woman’s right to refuse to allow her child’s leukemia to be treated with chemotherapy in preference for ‘aboriginal’ medicine. Did you know high dose vitamin C was ‘aboriginal’? Me neither.

Here I talk about drinking bleach and a rather fantastic way of spotting ghosts.

Feedback welcomed, as are suggestions for future slots.
