20. Was the covid vaccine one big conspiracy? With James O’Brien
Remember when Bill Gates tried to vaccinate the world against the coronavirus in order to microchip us all? Or was the World Health Organisation trying to alter our DNA? Or make us infertile to control the global population? Whatever the explanation, misinformation and conspiracy theories around the covid vaccine was a huge part of the global pandemic.
In the last episode on the season, the boys are joined by James O’Brien, LBC host extraordinaire, to enter the mirky world of anti-vaxxers.
Jol and the two James’ chart the origins of the anti-vax movement, and discuss how and why wild conspiracy theories flourished during the coronavirus pandemic. James O’Brien also reflects on the state of the nation, giving his takes on Boris, democracy in general, and, surprisingly how he shouldn’t be bothered private members’ clubs.
James O’Brien can be heard on LBC every weekday from 10-1. He is the author of the books ‘How Not To Be Wrong’ and ‘How To Be Right’.
