Tom Levenson Science documentary filmmaker and Director of MIT’s Graduate program in writing and humanistic studies — hosts VS Science on the third Wednesday of the month to discuss history of science, economics, and some climate science.

This week Tom talks with Seth Mnookin — author of The Panic Virus: A True Story of Medicine, Science and Fear — about bad science, science and civic conversation, and whether new media will allow us to root out the former and enhance the latter. VS Science is hosted by the Meta Institute for Computational Astrophysics. Follow @SethMnookin @TomLevenson
