Taking Science Seriously - Scientific versus alternative medicine

Podcast 001.  This is our first podcast. It is mainly my rant against homeopathy, but it has bits about witchcraft and the anti-vaccination movement also.

Footnote:  The Wikipedia entry for "Witch-hunt" used to list Mary and Elizabeth Hick[e]s as the last to be executed, at Huntingdon in 1716.  But the evidence for this comes only from a pamphlet of doubtful reliability and is not backed up by court records.  Apparently there is some evidence that an Alice Molland was hanged at Exeter in 1684 for witchcraft.
