Tait Discusses When Media and Science Collide

Tait Discusses When Media and Science Collide

The latest Big Idea Podcast from the University of Edinburgh looks at how science is at the heart of everything.

As part of the podcast, three academics who participated in the Edinburgh International Science Festival, including our own Joyce Tait, shared their thoughts on how technology changes our ability to learn, the effect of the media on science, and similarities between artists and scientists.

Joyce discussed how the media plays an important role in the public and political understanding of science, and outlined the dynamics of this incredibly important and increasingly fractious relationship.
