In 2009 in Australia, a citizens’ campaign was launched to silence public criticism of vaccination. This campaign involved an extraordinary variety of techniques to denigrate, harass and censor public vaccine critics. It was unlike anything seen in other scientific controversies, involving everything from alleging beliefs in conspiracy theories to rewriting Wikipedia entries.
Vaccination Panic in Australia analyses this campaign from the point of view of free speech. Brian Martin describes the techniques used in the attack, assesses different ways of defending and offers wider perspectives for understanding the struggle. The book will be of interest to readers interested in the vaccination debate and in struggles over free speech and citizen participation in decision-making.

The topic area is excellent and the premises of your podcast is commendable.
However, you really need to let the guest have more airspace.
On a number of occasions the guest is trying to speak, however, isn’t allowed time to speak or answer questions.
Have you used skype to record podcasts? sometimes there is a lag & it shows up in the recording so i can’t hear the guest speaking. I feel that i have alway’s given guests lots of time to speak so if it sounds like i am butting in then it’s most likely an accident on my part due to skype lag. I do have to introduce the podcast with date & website info so if i stop that then the guest will think it’s a bit strange.
Thanks for sharing your yoga experience! ?cialis
