Kris Newby’s book, Bitten: The Secret History of Lyme Disease and Biological Weapons has sparked a lot of chatter, approving and critical, including being the impetus of legislation in Congress.

In this podcast, I look at what some critics have said about this thesis and how Newby responds. I also take a look at New Jersey Rep. Chris Smith’s work on the House floor.

What do you think? Is this true, do you believe as Newby does or is it another conspiracy theory? Let me know your thoughts.
