In this episode of Life, the Universe & Everything Else, Ashlyn Noble, Laura Creek Newman, and Gem Newman discuss the pseudoscientific belief that AIDS is not caused by HIV. Also on this episode, Ashlyn interviews Susan Gerbic of the Guerrilla Skepticism on Wikipedia project.

Life, the Universe & Everything Else is a program promoting secular humanism and scientific skepticism presented by the Winnipeg Skeptics and the Humanists, Atheists & Agnostics of Manitoba.

Update (7 August 2014): The Guerrilla Skepticism on Wikipedia project has recently attracted some criticism from within the skeptical community for its use of private forums to conduct discussions, training, and the like, rather than making use of the open, transparent services (such as projects, sandboxes, and talk pages) already provided by Wikipedia for its editors. Rebecca of the Dublin Skeptics in the Pub discusses these issues on Skepchick here.
