The question of where Covid-19 came from has become one of the most contentious and heated topics. Even the US intelligence community is split between those who believe it most likely emerged naturally from the wild and those who believe it came from a lab, the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
This is a conversation about where the evidence points between Yuri Deigin of the DRASTIC collective that has been researching the lab, and Stuart Neil, a virology professor at Kings College in the UK.

Rebel Wisdom has been covering the ongoing controversy over the claims to do with the drug Ivermectin and those who claim the Covid vaccines are dangerous.
The principle advocate for Ivermectin has been the doctor Pierre Kory and his organisation the Frontline Covid-19 Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC). However, behind the scenes there has been growing concern about the closeness between the FLCCC and anti-vaccine activists. Eric Osgood MD was part of the FLCCC, but is now speaking out publicly about what he observed, and raising the alarm. This is released at the same time as our final installment in the investigation into the vaccine claims on the Dark Horse podcast: https://youtu.be/pyhWkiG7wAU This is part of Rebel Wisdom’s series of films on this topic. Find the others on our YouTube homepage.

Over the last few weeks, Rebel Wisdom has been investigating the claims of vaccine dangers made by Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying and their guests on the Dark Horse podcast. This has not been an easy process given Bret and Heather are former interviewees and friends.
But the stakes could not be higher, and this issue shows up all of the problems of Sensemaking, and finding truth.
At the same time as this film is being released, David Fuller has written a piece for Areo magazine looking at the context and the sensemaking challenges involved: https://areomagazine.com/2021/08/12/o…
We have also released a longer, exhaustive investigation of the evidence on our Rebel Wisdom Medium page: https://medium.com/rebel-wisdom/on-va…
And an interview with Iona Italia, the editor of Areo magazine, about the editorial process and the difficulty of balancing public and private when criticising friends: https://youtu.be/94jwkGduDls
We will be hosting a Q&A dialogue about the investigation in our Digital Campfire on Wednesday 18th August. Please come along if you are a Rebel Wisdom member, or consider joining (Explorers & Sensemakers invited): https://rebelwisdom.co.uk/plans
We have also created a simple form for non members to submit questions if you wish, and we will address as many as possible during the Q&A: https://forms.gle/zr2SgyNGrMDqjiLr8
We are running our highly regarded Sensemaking course again in October, check it out here: https://rebelwisdom.co.uk/courses/sen…

Rebel Wisdom’s film, “Ivermectin, Yes or No” was taken down by YouTube on Wednesday 4th August and labelled as “medical misinformation”. This is despite us featuring both sides of the argument, with Ivermectin advocate Tess Lawrie matched with two skeptics, Gideon Meyerowitz-Katz and Graham Walker MD.
After appealing the decision the film was reinstated, with no explanation so far. Which shows the problem with the unaccountability of the big tech platforms, and emphasises many of the problems we’ve been taking about in the alternative media space.

What does Eric Weinstein make of the current controversy around vaccines and Ivermectin, centred on the criticism of his brother Bret’s podcast, the Dark Horse.
In the last days, Sam Harris and former guest Yuri Deigin have both been heavily critical of claims made by both Bret and his guests.
In this conversation with Rebel Wisdom’s David Fuller, Eric talks through his concerns at what is going on, and what he thinks are the deeper currents of the problem, including a lack of effective leadership in dealing with the pandemic.

In recent months, Ivermectin has gone from a little known anti parasite drug to a culture war battleground – for some it’s a potential miracle drug for treating and prevention of Covid and for others it’s over-hyped snake oil.
Discussion of Ivermectin has also led to censorship from the Big Tech platforms. But the free speech/censorship dynamic is only part of the story – is also shows how broken our information landscape is – with the advocates on one side, and the skeptics on the other – creating echo chambers and filter bubbles, and broken sensemaking.
In this film we hear from three voices, Tess Lawrie, one of the most outspoken advocates for Ivermectin, Gideon Meyerowitz-Katz, an epidemiologist and data nerd from Australia who has been examining the data, and Graham Walker, an ER doctor from San Francisco who has also been deep in the science and competing claims around Ivermectin.
Rebel Wisdom has prepared a full background briefing document on Ivermectin here to go alongside this film: We will be hosting a conversation around this topic, and attempting to make sense of it live in our digital campfire on Tuesday 27th July, to join us, sign up here for as little as $10 per month: https://rebelwisdom.co.uk/plans
