Episode details

The lab leak theory has been in the news again, following Republicans on the House Committee on Oversight and Reform releasing a letter with more details on a February 1, 2020 call between Anthony Fauci, Francis Collins and expert scientists, discussing the pandemic’s possible origin.

It’s a story that Toronto’s Elaine Dewar has been following for some time. The investigative journalist wrote a book on the topic during the city’s endless months of lockdown, following the trail through news reports, medical papers and government documents — and detailing alarming details about connections between the National Microbiology Lab in Winnipeg and Chinese military scientists.

Elaine Dewar’s book, On the Origin of the Deadliest Pandemic in 100 Years: An Investigation is a riveting read, and the subject of our conversation on this week’s episode of the podcast.
