Welcome to The Bunk Podcast
The Bunk is your source for fact-checking all forms of media, from the mainstream media to your Auntie’s Facebook ramblings.
The Bunk Episode 9: Merry Mithmas
The Bunk Episode 8: The Birds and the Bats (With Jake Farr-Wharton)
Head transplants, human cats, smarter swearing, missile defence, cancer curing apples, human meat restaurant, the incompetent doctors, vaccine studies, and the intelligence of cats.
Episode 5: 100% Nambian Covfefe
A few quick easy stories that don’t require much investigation. Psychic Vampire Repellent, OSCAR the modular body, is there a multidimensional universe inside your brain, can we just nuke hurricanes, are women putting wasp nests inside their vaginas, did Mary Shelley keep her husband’s heart wherever she went?
Episode 4: Andrew Wakefield
A chronological look at the controversy that sparked the anti-vaccine movement. A look at Wakefield, his motivations, and how his defences stand up to scrutiny. A little different to the normal format, but hopefully you find this story useful.
Episode 1: Radio-Active
An introduction to the show, focusing mostly on dealing with a mounting problem at the Fukushima Daiichi site, and how bad of a director James is (I’ll get better, I promise)

A quick note about this webpage
As of the moment this webpage is self hosted. That means everything you are seeing is coming from my little Raspberry Pi box sitting on the top of my internet router. It will certainly service the page for now, but there are a few downsides to hosting your own site on a budget, and one of those being that I’m prone to such things as power and service outages, which admittedly rarely ever happens. The server will also be taken down for 10 to 20 minutes for maintenance at 1400GMT every day. Once the podcast is launched I will start looking for a hosting service, so in the meantime please be patient if the page isn’t operational 100% of the time.
