Odd couples

Astronomers, anti-scientists and antiquarians 20 July 2010

It's all about pairs on this episode of the podcast. We offer a spirited defense against two attacks on scientists by journalists, wonder why people keep mixing up the two different disciplines of science and medicine, and explore two very different amateur scientist characters in novels - one old, and one just published. Join Jenny and Richard in London for these stories and more from the world of science in art, literature and popular culture!
