Harry Haverkos was one of the first AIDS researchers. Although he accepts that HIV plays a role in AIDS, he also has studied the connection between nitrite inhalants, known as ‘poppers’, and Kaposi’s Sarcoma, one of the two diseases that defined GRID - Gay Related Immune Deficiency. Poppers are immune suppressive, carcinogenic, and have a powerful effect on the vascular system, so they are well suited as a potential cause of some AIDS defining illnesses, especially KS. They are used as recreational drugs mostly by gay men, and were deeply embedded in gay life in the big cities of the US in the 1970s and 1980s, and are still easily found today. It is rare to have direct testimony from someone who was an insider in the early days of AIDS, especially at the time before the HIV theory of AIDS solidified, excluding any other cause. But, as Harry notes, in his mind, the cause of KS is still an open question.
David also briefly talks about his concerns about approaches to the new coronavirus panic in China, and has documented them at:

David discusses two papers that James Lyons-Weiler of the Institute for Pure and Applied Knowledge (IPAK) regarding what a safe dosage of injected Aluminum would be, and how it is excreted from the body. They also talk about a recent WHO conference on vaccine safety, that seemed more concerned with public perceptions than actually making vaccines safe.

Because of the new coronavirus scare, David has put his book chapter on SARS, the coronavirus scare of 2003, online at

Jim Steele, a California based environmentalist, science educator and climate skeptic, returns to discuss the recent, devastating bush fires in Australia, and why he thinks they are not proof of the “Climate Catastrophe”. David and Jim discuss the natural role that fire plays in ecosystems in Australia and California, and how human activity can increase the fuel load, and how some groups resist removing fuel by prescribed burns, brushing, or logging.

Lynne  Millican is a former RN who had to retire due to side effects from the GnRHa (Gonadotropin-Releasing Hormone Analog) drug Lupron, which she took for endometriosis and in-vitro fertilization (IVF). Lynne and David discuss the wide range of conditions for which the drug is used (but never approved for most), including the increasingly popular diagnosis of gender dysphoria. Lynne’s research has uncovered an even wider range of side effects, some of opposite to claims about the benefits of the drug, such as reduced ovarian function and cessation of menstruation, in a drug that is supposed to increase the chance of getting pregnant. Despite her disabilities Lynne has struggled for years to make more information on the adverse effects of Lupron known, starting a website, and assisting with legal cases. But despite this the FDA seems determined to protect the licensing of the drug, and has rebuffed contrary information, including a major review by licensed MD Dr. Redwine.

Nelson is a small, tranquil city hidden in Canada’s western mountains, but even it is not immune from the gender wars. Guest Donna Macdonald describes how women fought back when their beloved Women’s Centre was opened to people of all “marginalized genders”, including biological males. When the board of intersectionalist feminists refused to negotiate, their complaint went to the British Columbia Supreme Court, which eventually approved the conduct of a new AGM, including elections of a completely new board of directors. The board is now almost split between advocates for women and trans allies, so the tension has not been resolved yet. This is a good example of a seemingly small, local issue, that illustrates a much bigger issue.

Michele Moore and Heather Brunskell-Evans are British academics and feminists who recently edited the book, “Inventing Transgender Children and Young People” (2019). With David they discuss the rapid rise in gender dysphoria and transgenderism in the UK, including the dominant role that transgender organizations have played in education and treatment of the vulnerable youth who are literally not comfortable in their own skin, and in the censorship and deplatforming of critics. The discussion covers sex versus gender versus gender roles, and the emerging issue of detransitioners, the formerly transgender youth who are returning to their natal sex, often missing body parts such has breasts or testicles. This is the second compilation by this pair on the same subject, the first was “Transgender Children: Born in Your Own Body” (2018). The discussion ends by considering whether the wave of transgender ideology and affirmation has peaked, and those concerned with the physical and mental health of children, and the protection of women, are making progress in resisting an ideology that demands that people “perform gender” and eventually have surgery in a usually futile effort to resolve deep-seated traumas and other psychological issues.

Peter Gøtzsche was one of about 80 people who founded the Cochrane Collaboration in the 1990s, which became the world’s leading evidence based medicine organization, famous for its reviews of drugs, vaccines and other medical interventions. Peter became an advocate for obtaining all the information for reviews, including that which had been submitted to drug regulators, but never made public. When a review of the HPV vaccine was published by Cochrane, giving it a clean bill of health, Gøtzsche and colleagues publicly criticized it. This was seen as disloyal, but they knew that the review had missed a lot of less positive material. This may have been the major reason for Gøtzsche to be thrown out of his own organization, in a rather brutal fashion, the subject of his new book, “Death of a Whistelblower”.

JCCF, the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms, is a Canadian, libertarian, legal non-profit that intervenes in cases based on issues they consider to be important. Recently, they represented female estheticians, mostly poor immigrant women of color, who refused to give a brazilian wax to biological male/transwoman J. Yaniv, and a Grade 1 girl who was told by her teacher that girls don’t exist, also based on gender ideology. Other issues they have become embroiled in include mandatory participation in an indigenous spiritual ceremony, and the issue of whether parents should be informed when their children join a Gay-Straight Alliance at school. Ironically, on some of these issues they have found themselves allied with Gender Critical Feminists who would traditionally have been on the opposite side of any social/political issue.

David interviews Canadian feminist Meghan Murphy who, because she continues to speak out firmly, with conviction, and unbowed by death threats, continues to be targeted. She talked in Toronto at a public library. While the chief librarian held firm, outside the venue a mob yelled slurs at people attending. She talked with others at another event in Vancouver, which was also besieged by demonstrators. Vancouver is also home to Jessica or Jonathan Yaniv, who achieved fame by dragging 15 women to the BC Human Rights Tribunal for refusing to give their male genitalia a brazilian wax. The case is over, and David and Meghan describe the outcome.

David discusses gender issues in this episode, summarizing an online correspondence with Larry Cahill, a neuroscientist who thinks that differences between male and female brains are clear, differences between men and women in sports, and how recent research shows they are not erased by testosterone lowering, the impact of gender self id on crime and imprisonment, and more.
