The Origins of the Autism Vaccine Myth with Special Guest Kurt Eichenwald
We always wonder how myths and misconceptions start but in this episode we finally have an answer. We get to speak with Pulitzer Prize finalist and Payne award winner, former senior writer for the New York Times, and author of the book The Big Lie: How One Doctor's Medical Fraud Launched Today's Deadly Anti-Vax Movement, Kurt Eichenwald. He tells us the story of former Dr. Andrew Wakefield and the lies he put forth to the world on vaccines and their relation to Autism. Kurt's book is now now and available exclusively on Scribd - see the link below!
