Ep. 8 - Tim Friede (Human based Snake Antivenom man)

March 1, 2019

Tim Friede has allowed himself to be bitten hundreds of times by snakes so venomous they could kill an elephant. These include Taipans, Monocled cobras and Black Mambas to name just a few. Tim is one of the co-founders of Mithros Bioscience - a company which is using Tim's own body's antibodies to create a human based antivenin. Tim and his partners aim to use this antivenom to help thousands of people - many in poverty stricken areas of the world. These people are forgotten by big Pharma as they can't pay large fees for antivenin drugs. Check out Tim Friede's videos on Youtube where he gets bitten by taipans and Black mambas simultaneously in pursuit of this noble cause.

Episode 6 - John Baker (Dowser)

January 12, 2019

John Baker discovered the ability to dowse in 1993, quite by chance and embarked on a great new adventure initially working with local archaeologists as I needed proof that that what I was 'picking up', did in fact exist and was not the result of feverish imagination. It wasn't!!

Several of Britain’s biggest water companies have said their engineers still use dowsing rods to divine the location of water pipes and leaks after being challenged by a science blogger. The practice of dowsing, which dates from medieval times, involves using two L-shaped rods to find hidden water. It has been derided as superstition by many for centuries and has not been found to be unreliable by scientists.
