This is Preferred Company with Joel and friends! Today’s guest is Philip Bouchard, software engineer and author of ‘The Stickler’s Guide to Science in the Age of Misinformation’. Philip takes a closer look at 13 pervasive scientific untruths, tackling a range of topics from gravity and radiation to global warming and pandemics and humorously and accessibly shares the real science behind them. Learn why trees do not “store” carbon dioxide, why DNA is not really the “blueprint of life”, and why a day is not actually 24 hours. He believes the deeper we understand these issues, the better we can do as citizens in an era of half-truths, propaganda and outright lies.
