When Nick Hudson - Panda Founder and Chairman - was in London a few weeks ago, I had the chance to interview him in front of a studio audience. Nick was in hot demand over the week or so he was in London, and undertook many media interviews and recorded several podcasts.
But our conversation focused on Nick’s desire to see a return to ‘open science’ - the process whereby received wisdom (or “the science”) is questioned by those with open minds. Only by questioning and challenging do we move forward.
Nick, of course, was de-platformed from Twitter for questioning the received wisdom.
Here’s Jeremy Vine - by comparison - attempting to defend the null hypothesis of establishment “science” against an onslaught of common sense. Proof, if proof were needed, that the media is losing this particular culture war.
