Episode 24 - Melanie's Marvelous Measles by Stephanie Messenger

41 minutes

Episode 24 tackles the anti-vaccination phenomenon. Melanie's Marvelous Measles was written by an anti-vaxxer author so parents could easily indoctrinate their children and get them severely ill, injured, or killed with warped ideas based on a misinterpretation of data and science!

Topics include outrage, trying to wrap our minds around anti-vax logic, and a description of the "illustrations" in this thing. We don't really want to call the work a "book" or the images "illustrations" since neither are truly those things. There are 40 pages with 20 of them only including images and the 20 with words have only 1-4 sentences/page, so ... you get the idea.
