Conversations on Science

A new season from ‘After the Fact,’ Pew’s podcast

Conversations on Science

In a new season of Pew’s “After the Fact” podcast, we talk about science—what it is, how it’s conducted and explained to the public, and how it affects our lives. During the pandemic, the world is living through a science experiment. We’ll examine that as well as how scientists build trust with nonscientists, how to increase diversity among researchers, and how science becomes public policy.

We speak with scientists and researchers—from Dr. Anthony Fauci and Pew Biomedical Scholar Pamela Bjorkman, who are on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic, to “Science Friday” host Ira Flatow and physicist and bestselling author Carlo Rovelli, who speak about the scientific process and why it matters. Join us as we explore science and envision how what’s happening today may shape the future of our world.
