Peter C Gøtzsche, Professor emeritus, Director, Institute for Scientific Freedom, Copenhagen, Denmark, is the host of the Broken Medical Science podcast. He has published several books and is the only Dane who has published over 100 articles in the world’s five most prestigious medical journals, BMJ, Lancet, JAMA, Annals of Internal Medicine, and New England Journal of Medicine.

Janus Bang is a historian, an award-winning Danish filmmaker, and the programme producer.

We receive editorial advice from Maryanne Demasi, journalist, PhD, Australia, and Kim Witczak, consumer advocate, USA.

Our mission is the same as the mission for the Institute for Scientific Freedom. We work to preserve honesty and integrity in science and to help develop a better healthcare where more people will benefit; fewer will be harmed; and more will live longer in good health. To further this mission, we will need to influence the public discourse. There are no ads and no censorship.

We provide documentation, so that our audience can check for themselves that what is being said is based on sound science.

The main topics in our podcast series are psychiatry, drugs, and vaccines. We will also make documentaries, and the first one will be: “The honest professor and the fall of the Cochrane empire.”

We have a broken medical system. Our prescription drugs are the leading cause of death, after heart disease and cancer. This would not be the case if drug regulators protected us against ineffective and harmful drugs and if doctors did not prescribe far too many drugs.
