I've really enjoyed Gary's show. However, the way he presents the Wuhan Covid lab leak hypothesis as proven science bugs me. What other ideas does he present as true even when they're unproven speculation?

About I Know What Scares You
Hosted by science writer Brian Dunning, mentalist Jonathan Pritchard, anthropologist and comedian Natalia Reagan, and science expert Dr. Kiki Sanford—“I Know What Scares You” asks guests and listeners to tap into their deepest fears. Special guests relay personal stories of real-life paranormal, inexplicable, or simply terrifying experiences that actually happened to them. The show’s team of expert hosts then attempt to find a rational solution to the mysterious incidents. Each week the program hosts put their various expertise together to collectively come up with an explanation that checks all the boxes and, hopefully, gives a guest a new perspective on their unexplainable experience.
