  1. Ground breaking show. Best interview. Glad to see a more thorough look at the history of vaccines, warts and all. A+ thanks.

    Spectacular interview and discussion. This show delves into the nuance of of polio vaccines and their history and seamlessly puts the science in the context of politics and human affairs.
