Just thought you'd like to know:
My kids watch the PBS show "Curious George" which usually does a good job with introductory Physics, Astronomy, scientific method, etc. Interspersed with the cartoons they have scenes with real children that do a real-life parallel investigation of what happened on Curious George.
Today's episode involved "the man in the yellow hat" catching a cold, and Curious George going to the pharmacy and picking up various drugs to assist in making the guy feel better, mainly to have him sleep and be comfortable.
The interspersed skit, however, had the children visit a naturalpath, where they learned:* Oregano cures infections* Various pressure points that correspond to energy lines* And that taping magnets to these points is really effective.
I sat here simply amazed.
Coming next week: Following a series of infections, George and The Man In The Yellow Hat get into AIDS denialism for all of the wrong reasons.
Thanks for the podcast!
