The New American War on Science

AccessMinnesota did a program a couple of weeks ago on the anti-science sentiment that has been evident in the recent GOP presidential debates.  They interviewed Shawn Lawrence Otto, the author of the very newly-published Fool Me Twice: Fighting the Assault on Science in America.  I look forward to reading this book, and I think the podcast includes some interesting thoughts on the proper & responsible use of scientific discoveries & technological innovations.  They also briefly touch on how badly the media covers science & health topics, and how that, in turn, only fans the anti-science flames.  The episode is available to stream or download here.
