Ep 117: Alexander Bennett – World’s Worst Scientific Fraud

Pop on your lab coats and join us down in the Worst Foot Forward labs as we uncover a carnival of quackery, forgery and all sorts of morally dubious activity done in the name of human progress.

At the behest of one of our Patreon supporters we took a look at some of the world’s worst scientific frauds and uncovered the story of the Piltdown Man (mammoth tusk cricket bat and all), how to make gold from seawater and why a certain species of toad are really into S&M.
