39 – Scientific Accuracy in Stories

The Mythcreant Podcast
Dr. Brandon Kier joins Oren, Mike, and Chris in discussing scientific accuracy – or lack thereof – in popular stories. They speculate on whether scientific accuracy is important, describe stories and scenes with questionable science, and highlight how science and the scientific process is itself portrayed.

Technical note: We’re still working on getting the sound quality back where it needs to be. Thanks for sticking with us!
