Episode 28 - Octomum devotion

It's National Science Week, so we thought we'd bring out another episode, because there is no such thing as too much science.

This episode we talk Ebola. What's happening, why is the media so bad with stuff like this and we ponder why Homeopaths without Borders isn't mucking in.
