Ignorance

The smartest radio talk show in the world addresses ignorance, Sunday.

Skeptically Speaking # 174: Ignorance

This week, we’re looking at how the basic condition of not knowing things provides the motivation to keep science moving. We’re joined by Stuart Firestein, Chair of Columbia University’s Department of Biological Sciences, to talk about his book Ignorance: How It Drives Science. And on the podcast, we’re joined by Toronto attorney Adam Wygodny, to talk using the law to protect consumers from ineffective and untested alternative medicine products.

We record live with Stuart Firestein on Sunday, July 22 at 6 pm MT. The podcast will be available to download at 9 pm MT on Friday, July 27.
