CSIcon 2017 Part #3

Join us at CSIcon 2017 as we interview Ross Blocher from "Oh No, Ross and Carrie!"

The podcast where they don’t just report on spirituality, fringe science and the paranormal (from a scientific, evidence-based standpoint), but dive right in by joining religions, attending spiritual events, undergoing “alternative” treatments, partaking in paranormal investigations, and more. At Oh No, Ross and Carrie!, they show up, so you don’t have to.

Australian patients vulnerable to quacks

We live in the most scientific of ages where it is more than reasonable to expect that modern healthcare strategies will be underpinned by credible scientific evidence for their clinical effectiveness. However, we find flourishing, pseudoscientific concepts and practices that are an affront to our detailed knowledge of how our bodies function in health and disease. - John Dwyer
