Book Shambles

We spend a lot of time at Shambles talking about science, so on today’s episode of Book Shambles we’re going to talk about how the media should and shouldn’t talk, and write, about science. Helen Czerski guest hosts once again and she chats with Fiona Fox from the Science Media Centre who has just released a fascinating book, Beyond the Hype: The Inside Story on Science’s Biggest Media Controversies. They chat COVID, vaccines, David Nutt, GM food and a whole lot more.
