Podcast: Vaccine Skepticism and Free Speech with Robert F. Kennedy Jr.Nov 26, 2020
Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is best known as a distinguished environmental lawyer and advocate for environmental justice. In recent years, he has been an outspoken critic of Big Pharma, specifically as it pertains to vaccines. Many have dubbed him an “anti-vaxxer,” but he claims to be pro-safe vaccines and contends that vaccines do not undergo sufficient testing.
Jeff invited Robert on the podcast to provide a platform for Robert to raise legitimate concerns about vaccination, as the lack of thoughtful discussion on this issue has, in some cases, radicalized the movement. While Jeff may not agree with some of the assertions in this episode, he ultimately decided that the value of sharing another’s opinion in a considered and non-social media context was more valuable than silencing those views.
