The last time Kevin McKernan was on the show, he told us about the (devastating) review of the Corman-Drosten PCR methodology that he co-authored. In this episode, he talks about some of the fallout from the review, including a scathing but imprecise attack from PCR expert Dr. Stephen Bustin - and why that attack is puzzling. We also talk about what this tells us about fundamental problems with the peer review process, and how that process is changing.
