Serial killers, HIV, cancer cures and more from psychic shows. Plus blood stains, lanterns, and Michael Crichton. Pawning our shoes, it’s Skeptics with a K.
This month on Be Reasonable we dip back into the archives for one of the most troubling interviews I’ve ever been involved in.
Back in 2010, reports emerged about a product called Miracle Mineral Solution – a pseudomedical panacea which was touted as a treatment for cancer, AIDS, malaria and Crohn’s disease, yet in actuality was much closer in chemistry to a form of industrial bleach. The founder and main proponent of MMS was Jim Humble, whose name quickly began to appear in the press, and who turned down interviews with the BBC and with the Guardian. He did, however, agree to speak to Hayley and me for our old podcast, Righteous Indignation.
It’s an interview that affected me greatly, and one I think about regularly, which is why I’d like to present it now, for the first time, in its unbroken entirety.
We are back! Again! With peer review, Back to the Future, replication, all the latest on QED… AND DEFINITELY NOTHING ELSE! Ahem.
Feeling rather sheepish, it’s Skeptics with a K.
Nicotine, marmalade, Monopoly and Grand Theft Auto. Plus the Bread Man, skeptical books and the Gateway Hypothesis. Feeding cocaine to mice, it’s Skeptics with a K.

Short legs, the power of prayer, cooking eggs and Coca-Cola Life. Plus amicable relationships, hanging around in graveyards, gullibility and omniscience. Subjectively true for you, it’s Skeptics with a K.
