Are you a sceintist/fan or a scientist/detractor of Dr. Joe Schwarcz's, and why?

Asked by flo (12974points) January 15th, 2012

People who are well versed in Dr. Schwarcz’s show (which he says is not available online) and his articles, etc.. would be ideal people to answer this.
I can’t listen to the show, bad time for me.
I have PCRM as a tag because there is something about a “tiff” with PCRM (Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine) in Google.

He might not keep full episodes on a website, but there seem to be short podcasts available for streaming.

I’ve never listened to his show, though I’m aware of it because he was my teacher once (about a million years ago), and I recognized the name. He’s a nice guy and seems to know what he’s talking about. I enjoyed the course. I don’t have any other information about him, sorry.

Also at these are not the podcast of the show where there is callers with questions and comments. These are essays being read by him.

As well I was on the site a week or more ago, and there was one bit of podcast from May15? and maybe another one. I don’t think it included exchange from callers.

Yeah, I noticed that too. You might want to look into streaming the actual broadcast when it’s on.

I wouldn’t worry overmuch about the dates on the website. Either entering dates correctly isn’t the web coordinator’s top priority, or they’re posting podcasts in advance, then putting different dates for the titles. Either way (or some other way), it doesn’t affect the content of the show.

Are you enjoying the podcasts? Is it close to what you were looking for?

@dappled_leaves I am laughing my head off here. You are a comedian.

From my post above ”Also at these are not the podcasts of the shows where there is callers with questions and comments. These are essays being read by him
ignore the “at” and read there ”...are callers…”

Jan.15/2012, for sure there was no reading on the show.

The podcast of the readings is no longer the site.

I’m sorry, I don’t understand. Why am I a comedian?

What are the tags “numerology”, etc. about in this OP?

A lay person would say “dark choclate is good for you.” What should you say as a scientist/chemist?
