Never Mind the B#LL*CKS Here's the Science

By Professor Luke O'neill

Professor Luke O’Neill, one of the leading voices of authority during the COVID-19 pandemic, grapples with life’s biggest questions and tells us what science has to say about them: Do we have control over our lives? Must we vaccinate our children? Covering topics from global pandemics to addiction and euthanasia, Luke’s trademark easy wit and clever pop-culture references deconstruct the science to make complex questions accessible.
