For the inaugural post of this blog, I'm passing along a link to a splendid interview last week on Talk of the Nation. NPR host Rebecca Roberts talks to biologist-turned-filmmaker Randy Olson about the gap between style and substance in science. It's that gap, Olson argues, that is unintentionally giving the upper hand to the other side in the high stakes debates about such things as evolution and climate change.
You can find Olson's new book from Island Press, Don't Be Such a Scientist, here.
Hat tip to Daniel V. Harris for sending the link.
