Episode Info:

What does a rootin' tootin' cowboy-shootin' video game like Red Dead Redemption 2 have in common with Academy Award-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow?

The answer may surprise you...

This evening I'm joined by my good friends Adam McAvoy (@AdamTheRockMcA) and Alexandra Armson (@alexarmson). We'll be discussing the difference between science and pseudoscience, as well as highlighting some of the most ridiculous "wellness" products peddled online.

Alex gives us her perspective on what it might be like for teenage girls to be targeted by some of these harmful products and Adam highlights how powerful marketing can be, even when the product is complete nonsense.

From psychic vampire repellent to an extremely dangerous coffee enema, join us as we tackle the anti-science movement!

If you enjoy the episode remember to tweet us @thescienceboii with questions or suggestions about what you'd like to hear about in the future. We promise to read every tweet!
