Episode One Hundred And Sixty Three – On Immunisation (Part One) – Interview With Senator Richard Di Natale

Welcome back to the Token Skeptic podcast – I’ve been very busy teaching philosophy, which has taken me away from working on the podcast, but it’s great to have listeners still tuning in and supporting the show. Please do keep sending in suggestions and ideas, every bit helps, along with reviews and likes on iTunes and Facebook. Don’t forget that there’s also other great skeptical podcasts to support, like the Pseudoscientists, who were kind enough to feature me as a guest last month!

There’s a lot of new material on the way, and some that I have been using for my studies in Media – but first, here’s a short interview I conducted this morning with Australian Greens health spokesperson and former GP, Senator Richard Di Natale.

If you’re not from Australia, then you may have noticed that he was mentioned in the fairly recent round-up I did on the Skeptical Inquirer website, “Retreating to the Church of Anti-Vaccination“, which looked at mainstream media and political coverage for the month of May.

Just this week, Senator Di Natale appeared on Today Tonight, which is a popular commercial current affairs program, and for this interview we talked about the importance of voting, the media and what led him to be inspired to speak out about the importance of vaccination.

Don’t forget, if you’re in Melbourne – “Giants of Medicine” – free event with Prof Doherty and Professor Ian Frazer: 7th August, 2013. Details here!

Theme songs are “P&P” by Derek K. Miller of www.penmachine.com and “Leap Second” by Milton Mermikides, of  www.miltonmermikides.com.
