Should we believe in science? Is there any room to scrutinize the scientific method? And does Eric Lerner have a point?

Recently, my dear colleagues, Dr. Anastasia Bendebury and Dr. Michael Shilo DeLay joined me at UCSD to discuss how scientists come to conclusions about the world, the role of belief in science, and what we can learn from modern controversies in cosmology.

Dr. Anastasia Bendebury and Dr. Michael Shilo DeLay are scientists and explorers who host the weekly podcast DemystifySci. Each week, they interview a new theorist about the ideas that will rewrite our understanding of nature. 

Join us as we explore the complexities of science and the scientific method!
