They blinded us with (junk) science
This week we discuss the junk science behind cancerous claims about Round-up, Agent Orange, 1080, and Autism diagnoses, looking at how legal findings do not necessarily tell you anything interesting scientifically. We also cover some shenanigans surrounding the Brett Kavanaugh hearings, a 9/11 missing person case, and the latest disinformation from Russia.
