After some technical difficulties (corrected in our online version!) we had a good conversation including voices both in favour of and against homeopathy. A heated topic, but an important one.

We talk with Peter Fraser, who is Director of the Institute of Homœopathy (http://www.homoeopathist.info/) about the principles behind homeopathic practices and the health benefits he sees his patients enjoying from their homeopathic treatments.

We also talk with Lee Mollers, President of BC Skeptics, and Jamie Williams, Executive Director of the BC Centre for Inquiry   about their concerns about the practice of and theory behind  homeopathy.

Music by the Gruff, Geoff Berner, Maria Dunn and Kevin Efting.

Partners in Health: solidarity versus charity in health care | rabble.ca.

We feature an interview with Donna Barry, Director of Advocacy for Partners in Health; a Boston-based non-profit health care organization providing a preferential option for the poor. With Donna we discuss the drawbacks of the charitable model of health service provision and how NGOs can support popular struggles for national sovereignty and self-determination in Haiti and elsewhere.

With new music by Vancouver-based Corbin Murdoch and the Nautical Miles.
