016a - Let’s Watch House of Numbers with The League of Nerds

James and Myles from the League of Nerds join us as we watch the AIDs denialist "documentary" House of Numbers

The League of Nerds (TLoN for short) came into existence around october 2013 when long time Youtubers Myles Power (powerm1985) and James Gurney (jimtheevo) decided to set up their own podcast.

Check out LoN:

Myles and James The League of Nerds

About Myles.

For those of you who are just tuning in, my name is Myles Power and I run the educational YouTube channel powerm1985. I am originally from a small town in the North East of England called Middlesbrough, but have spend a large potion of my adult life living in Manchester. I am a chemist who is is currently working in industry, but what little free time I have I spend sharing my love of SCIENCE! through home experiments, visiting sites of scientific interest and angry rants at pseudoscience opponents. I studied chemistry specialising in organic chemistry at the University of Manchester and Toronto. Later in my career, I moved more towards bio-chemistry and worked on projects including the synthesising various nucleic acid analogues for non-enzymatic transcription and controlling gene expression using a mutant riboswitch. I have over 7 years of experience working in a research lab, which has given me the skills I need to research and debunk virus psuedoscience theories. Some of the theories I have discussed on my YouTube channel including AIDS denialists, 911 truthers, the anti-vaccination movement and homeopathy to name a few.

About James.

James is a microbiologist who specialises in evolutionary microbiology. He knows very little about anything else. Currently he is about to start a postdoc on bacterial co-evolution with Phage for therapeutic reasons in France. He has been doing stuff online since about 2008. His biggest annoyance is Antivaxers.
