In this episode, James welcomes back Matt Ridley, an acclaimed author & journalist who co-wrote the book Viral: The Search for the Origin of COVID-19. The book delves into the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic and explores the various theories that have emerged about how the virus started. With recent reporting suggesting that the Department of Energy and FBI are now considering the possibility that the pandemic began from a lab leak, Ridley returns to the show for the third time since the book's release to discuss this development in depth. He will explore the evidence and arguments that support or refute the idea that the virus originated from a laboratory. Ridley's extensive knowledge of the subject and his ability to communicate complex scientific concepts in an accessible way make him an ideal guest to discuss this topic. Listeners can expect to gain a deeper understanding of the pandemic's origins and the potential implications of a lab leak theory being confirmed. They will also get insights into the scientific community's ongoing search for answers and their challenges in investigating this complex and politically charged issue. ------------ Visit to read our idea lists & sign up to create your own!
