In the sixty-first episode we explore the Prosecutor's Fallacy, starting with Trump misrepresenting a CDC study about masks and coronavirus.

In Mark's British Politics Corner we look at Mark Francois confusing a claim by Will Self, and the Telegraph's reasoning regarding false positive coronavirus tests.

In the Fallacy in the Wild, we check out real life legal cases including People v. Collins and the Sally Clark case.

Jim and Mark go head to head in Fake News, the game in which Mark has to guess which of three Trump quotes Jim made up.

Then we break down the Hunter Biden laptop... um... scandal?

And finally, we round up some of the other crazy Trump stories from the past week.
