policyPunchlineIn this jointly-hosted episode, we team up with the Policy Punchline podcast, a production run by Tiger Gao, to interview the notorious Michael Lemonick, Princeton lecturer and Scientific American Opinion Editor. Tune in to our discussion on science journalism, climate change, technology, and confidence in the future, guided by Mike’s trove of anecdotes from a career in writing about scientific progress. Is the average person ever going to care deeply about science and research? What is the role of the journalist in boosting public enthusiasm? Do we have any public-relations recourse against climate change — and if not, what do we need to do instead? Chew on these questions throughout this thought-provoking conversation, courtesy of Tiger, Mike, and the spirit of collaborative radio!
