Deeply Divided

    Listen

    This election season has put people at odds with one another. Deep divisions among Americans are amplified by the rapid-fire news cycle and social media. In this episode, we take a step away from the fighting and name-calling and see how some of the big issues in this election play out in the health and science world. 

    We’ll talk about the science of persuasion, find out what role race plays in research, and take a trip to the very place that started our country’s fierce debates over abortion. 

    We promise we’ll be very even-keeled and nobody will be called an idiot.
