Earlier in May a video was released about how the coronavirus pandemic was man-made and this scientist (Judy Mikovits)  was being suppressed and all this other stuff. There's a bunch of third-party and independent fact checkers that reviewed the "documentary" so we searched through some and listed a few of our favorite counterpoints. We also added our own scientific additions to provide even more information. -You can support our show by becoming a Patreon member at patreon.com/justnascience - your support helps keep our show ad-free. -Want to interact with us live?

REVIEW - The Goop Lab

REVIEW - The Goop Lab

2020-02-0427:542

In our first review we decided to look at the Netflix show The Goop Lab which discusses everything from psychedelic medications, doing yoga in the snow, and energy healing. A lot of the stuff discussed as zero scientific value and should be avoided but we make fun of it anyway. IMDB has The Goop Lab as a 2/5 rating which is basically all you need to know. We don't encourage anyone watching this show other than for pure entertainment value. -You can support our show by becoming a Patreon member at patreon.com/justnascience - your support helps keep our show ad-free. -Our website is www.justnascience.com  You can email us questions and topics for future episodes at justnapodcast@gmail.com -Find us on social: @justnascience for Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook -We put out new episodes every Tuesday! --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/justnascience/support

yeah, not your best podcast. Energy work and psychics are proven. The things you're lumping together shows your ignorance. I'm outta here.

You two are great! I didn't realize how clueless ppl are about #vaginas & womens bodies. My son is 21, and I messaged him constantly about this podcast while listening, just to make sure he's on point. When you talked about the introduction of a Luxury tax on feminine hygiene products because legislators thought women can control their mental blood the same as urine and were just too lazy to go to the restroom, I hit the roof. Right now, those same politicians are trying to keep us safe from the #SARSCoV2 #PANDEMIC; you've convinced me, we're all gonna die!
