I had an excellent time and look forward to being on the show again. I hope the ratings are good. Do they have ratings in podcastland?
Once again, I noted the danger of Jenny McCarthy’s misguided and unscientific and false claims of childhood vaccines causing autism. Now ABC is giving Ms Show-Us-Your-Boobs 1993 the platform of The View to spew her dangerous views. Even if she never mentions vaccines on the show, she has been given unwarranted credibility.

This one is a bit of a challenge. It is possibly the most disturbing I’ve ever seen. It’s still an intriguing examination of a group of documentarians chronicling the exploits of a serial killer.

It is disturbing, so it may not be for everyone.
