Being able to tell the difference between real science and pseudoscience has never been more important, especially given the staggering amounts of misinformation and disinformation being circulated on a daily basis.
In this episode I talk with Jonathan Jarry, a scientist who works for McGill University’s Office for Science and Society, which uses the tagline ‘Separating Sense from Nonsense’.
We cover some of the most blatant red flags that you’re dealing with pseudoscientific claims, charlatanry, grifters, and fake experts.
I hope you find this useful!
