A book with the title, “The End of Policing”, is certainly provocative, but it makes you think about how Americans are over-policed, especially if poor and not white, the futile and deadly war on drugs, the militarization of police, and how police are called even when they are clearly not suitable for the situation, such as people with mental health crises. David discusses these issues, and more, with Brooklyn College Sociology Professor Alex Vitale, who is also a frequent writer and consultant on police issues.

Meghan Murphy is a feminist who is concerned that some trans women, still with male genitalia, still sexually attracted to women, are asserting their entitlement to formerly women-only spaces. Stating that “Men are not women” was enough to get her permanently banned from twitter. David talks with her about areas where the emerging trans ideology conflicts with women’s rights, and the topsy-turvy world where a simple statement is classified as hate speech, but where calling for violence against “TERFs” (Trans Exclusive Radical Feminists) is applauded by many so-called progressives. Meghan is the founder and editor of Feminist Current:

Dick Ablin, a cancer researcher specializing in cryoimmunotherapy, discovered PSA, the Prostate Specific Antigen, in the 1970s. So he must love Movember, when men are encouraged to line up for PSA and other prostate screening, right? Wrong, in 2010 he wrote a New York Times Op-Ed decrying not only the use of  PSA, but all prostate cancer screening. In 2014 he published a book, “The Great Prostate Hoax” and, in 2018, he was interviewed, at the end of Movember (let’s  hope it’s the end), by David.

According to Jacob Stegenga, a Cambridge lecturer in philosophy of science, and author of the recent book, ‘Medical Nihilism’, many pharmaceutical interventions have a thin theoretical and evidentiary basis. He discusses this with David, including how pharmaceutical companies can manipulate science, especially controlled trials, to get their drugs approved, even if they are useless or worse.

Mary Holland has been a law professor at the NYU School of law since 2004. Focussing on human rights and health law, when she, and some co-authors, put the HPV vaccine on trial, they found it guilty of a lot of crimes. These included using a false placebo, lying about the contents of the placebo, lying about the (lack of) previous safety testing, and more. And health authorities like CDC, WHO and the European Medicines Agency are just as guilty for approving and promoting the vaccine. The discussion with David just touches a few of the important issues raised by her book, “The HPV Vaccine on Trial: Seeking Justice for a Generation Betrayed”. Listen, and you will probably want to get the book.

David discussed the Clark family trial in Calgary, Canada, with David Stephan in the previous episode. But the trial has now concluded, with a verdict, so the two Davids talk again about what this all means. David Stephan also gives an update on the progress of his new trial, which was ordered when the Supreme Court of Canada overturned the conviction of him and his wife, for the death of one of their children, in a case with eerie similarities to the Clark Case. David also reads from a presentation he prepared for a Spanish conference, with the title, “Resisting the Dictatorship of HIV and AIDS”. This talks about HIV/AIDS doctors, similarly to those in other dogmatic domains, control our communications, with the ultimate goal of controlling our bodies. Not because they really care about our bodies, but because they want to make a lot of money from them.

Calgary, a large city in Canada, has two more parents on trial for the death of their child. Initially characterized by the mainstream media as a child starved by their parents, as more information comes out, it appears that excessively aggressive treatment at two hospitals in Calgary probably caused the death. David Stephan, who was similarly accused, and whose conviction was recently overturned by the Supreme Court of Canada, has been closely following this trial, and shares information about it, including the most recent day of the trial, October 15, 2018, which was also the day of taping this episode. We cover the chronology of John Wyatt Clark’s illness, up to his death in the hospital, 21 hours after arriving, the symptoms, the treatments, and how the characteristics of the parents (religious, vegan, non-vaccinating) influenced the attitude of doctors towards them. If you want to follow this trial as it continues, you can view David Stephan’s courthouse videos at:

In September 2018 former Canadian soldiers, and their supporters, gathered in Ottawa for an educational seminar on the anti-malarial drug Mefloquine, and then for a rally on Parliament Hill, the seat of Canada’s government. David traveled to Ottawa for both events, recording some outdoor interviews with rally participants, and some speeches by politicians, former soldiers and scientists. The last speech, by Dr. Remington Nevin, does not fit within our time slot, so is available here:

Genevieve Rail, a Professor at Montreal’s Concordia University, is part of a group of academics who recently published a paper that describes how HPV vaccines are marketed in Canada with fake informed consent, the purpose of the marketing being to ensure acceptance, and not to encourage a dialog. The paper was based on interviews with girls, the targets, their parents, and health care workers. Since the vaccine is presently targeted mostly at girls, feminism is used (or abused) to try to increase uptake (which is a much greater concern than safety or effectiveness). Our discussion also covers some of the scientific reasons for concern with this specific vaccine. For more about this week’s guest, see:

Andrea Werhun is co-creator of the photo book, “Modern Whore: A Memoir”, that describes her two years as an escort, providing sexual services to men. She does not portray herself as a victim, but as someone who enjoyed her time. This is an interesting discussion about whether society can accept sex work as something that will never go away, and whether it should be treated like any other business, with society protecting both the providers and purchasers of sexual services.
