RHLSTP #61: Ben Goldacre - I Think You'll Find It's More Complicated Than That. Richard has bought (and definitely not shoplifted) a present for this week's guest, the author who thinks you'll find it's more complicated than that, Ben Goldacre. It's a change of pace from the usual podcasts, with some serious chats about medicine, quacks, how a dead cat became a doctor and the ways that data and statistics can be abused. But there's still time for Goldacre to raise questions about his sexuality, talk about his pop star mum and discuss his 'friend's' attempts at autofellatio. Can nutritionists work out your allergies by moving your limbs? Are Beroccas just homeopathy for sceptics? Is Lancaster a real place? Is it possible to get a simple yes or no answer as to whether you should wear a cycle helmet? I think you'll find it's more complicated than that.
