We are joined by the award-winning author John Leake for a conversation about the astonishing interview he conducted in May 2021 with the eminent US physician and academic Dr Peter McCullough.
In that interview, which quickly went viral—and which features in the next podcast (TMR 265)—Dr McCullough tells his own story of pursuing early COVID-19 treatment for the sake of patients, describes the resistance by powerful institutions, and shares his deep concerns about COVID-19 vaccine safety in the context of continuing moves to push mandatory (or de facto mandatory) COVID-19 vaccination.
In this conversation, John Leake explains why he conducted the interview, and shares with us his views as to how Dr McCullough's powerful words fit into the story of COVID-19 which John has been researching since March 2020 in his capacity as an investigative author.
