leave a comment

The Skeptic Canary Show returns next Wednesday March 12th at 7pm GMT. Your regular hosts will be joined by none other than Brian Deer, the award-winning investigative journalist whose vast body of work includes a series of investigations into one Andrew Wakefield that eventually lead to the ex-doctor being struck off the medical register by the GMC.

We will be asking Brian Deer questions about many of his investigations (we won’t just be talking about MMR!) so as usual we invite listeners to submit their questions via email to tom at skepticcanary.com and via Twitter. See you here at 7pm!
