#140 - Censorship isn't the best way to crack down on quack science

18 mins | Feb 7, 2022

Today's episode from 7th February 2022. First this Monday: After Joe Rogan pledged to "try harder" in his efforts to balance out controversial views about COVID vaccines on his podcast, we ask whether he's responsible for spreading lies or whether it's simply minority, contrarian opinion. Then later, burnout is often seen as stemming from work but it can also be brought on from inconspicuous parts of life, like being in a bad relationship, the way we live and even parenting. We take a look at what you can do about it. Medical misinformation is a term that’s become increasingly popular over the course of the pandemic, however as Faye Flam argues in Bloomberg Opinion, it’s more complicated than simply being true or false. Today's work culture doesn’t understand burnout, including the fact that many can become exhausted after a perfectly ‘normal’ 40-hour workweek. For The Guardian, Caroline Dooner, the author of The F*ck It Diet, reveals some practical ways to shift in the way you operate and treat yourself to ease the frantic parts of modern living. Wake up with Curio is a different kind of morning show that gives you the context behind the news and gets you motivated for the day ahead, every Monday - Friday.
