As regular readers know, one of my interests outside of medicine is the phenomenon of Holocaust denial. Granted, I haven’t written as much about it lately as I used to, but that doesn’t mean I’ve lost interest. Actually, I think it may be because I seem to be encountering fewer and fewer major issues of Holocaust denial, although the Bishop Williamson case did draw my ire earlier this year, and I have been perturbed by Holocaust denier David Irving’s traveling anti-Semitism show that’s now slithering its way through the U.S. and is now in the eastern part of the country.
One thing that I have found, however, is an excellent podcast about Holocaust denial run by Holocaust Denial on Trial, the website that documented David Irving’s bogus libel trial against Deborah Lipstadt and now serves as a clearinghouse for news about Holocaust denial. Topics include Dr. Michael Shermer being interviewed on Why There Are Holocaust Deniers and Deborah Lipstadt discussing The Ethical Challenge Posed by Holocaust Denial. The only problems I have with the podcasts are that there are too few of them and there hasn’t been a new one since April. Fortunately, my contacts tell me that more are on the way and should be recorded within the next few weeks.
In the meantime, here’s the podcast feed link to subscribe. After all, what’s the good of having a moderately high traffic blog if I can’t pimp my colleagues’ and friends’ projects?
