On this episode of Out Loud, we looked at a controversial, maligned and explosive topic within the medical and scientific community.  There is actually a small movement of people who question the existence of HIV and AIDS.  Many within the movement refer to themselves as dissidents, skeptics, or AIDS Rethinkers, while others call them AIDS Denialists.  Tonight you will hear from David Crowe, the president of Rethinking AIDS.  I also spoke with Brian Foley, a scientist with the National Institute of Health and a member of AIDS Truth, a website devoted to debunking the claims of so-called AIDS Denialists.  Later in the show, we’ll hear from Michael Kaplan, the executive director of the Cascade Aids Project.
