In episode 168 David talks with Nancy Banks, a Harvard Medical School trained MD, about her new book, “The Slow Death of the AIDS/Cancer Paradigm”. She believes that approaches to cancer, and the entire HIV=AIDS=Death dogma are based on a flawed understanding of eukaryotic cell metabolism, eukaryotic referring to all cells with a membrane enclosed nucleus, as in all higher plants and animals. Nancy is not just a theoretician, she used her knowledge as an expert witness defending people from the criminal impact of the HIV=AIDS dogma in court, resulting in reduced sentences or overturned charges in most cases.

In Episode 167, David talks with the makers of the documentary, End Game, about assisted suicide in the United Kingdom, where it is currently illegal. Some people with devastating health conditions are fighting in the courts for the right to end their life with assistance. Others, more able to travel, go to Switzerland where lack of laws allow people to end their lives by drinking or injecting a fatal dose of drugs, in a way that it designed to be painless. Andi Reiss and Ollie Richards discuss both sides of the issue, from a man who changed his mind when he was able to get more state assistance, to a woman who is filmed ending her life at a Swiss clinic. The film is not currently available, but we will notify you when it is.

Bob Spirko is well known in the Calgary, Alberta, area, for his website,, that provides reliable information on many of the mountain scrambles in the local Rocky Mountains. This kind of scrambling has nothing to do with the scrambled sensations of schizophrenia except that, many years ago, Bob suffered from this condition. For reasons he can’t quite explain he decided not to use pharmaceutical drugs and perservered with mega-vitamin therapy. It was only after his schizophrenia receded that he regained his energy and first started cycling and then, as he started to slow down, mountain scrambling. He is not quite sure why his schizophrenia receded. Was it the megavitamins, his persistence with frequent exercise, or did he just grow out of it? You will learn about his struggle to overcome schizophrenia, as well as the mountain sport of scrambling, which is neither hiking nor mountain climbing, in this episode.

David interviews Justin Trottier of the Canadian Centre for Men and Families (CAFE), about support for men, most controversially for men who are victims of domestic violence, either at the hands of a woman, or a gay male partner. There are many shelters for abused women but, in Toronto, there is not yet a shelter for men (let alone their children), but that is about to change if Justin’s organization is successful in their fundraising. Although some women’s organizations have been very negative about this work, others are quietly working with his organization, recognizing that sometimes men need support for what have traditionally been seen as women’s problems.
