Hugh Farey reviews The Gracious Guest podcast interview with Joe Marino:
About the middle of June 2022, a podcast called ‘The Gracious Guest,’ hosted by Mike Creavey, invited Joe Marino to come in and answer the question, “How Old is the Shroud???” (Yup, three question marks). A good half of the interview is devoted to persistent insinuation that the radiocarbon dating of the Shroud was a conspiracy of dishonesty, whose purpose was to demonstrate a medieval origin for the Shroud, regardless of evidence to the contrary. The participants were in league, the Church collaborated and the results were fiddled. As this is palpable nonsense, the evidence Joe adduced in support of his claim was vague, inconsistent, and sometimes simply wrong. As we shall see.
