Boring Science Made Vivid (a.k.a. Complex & Messy Science Made Profound)

April 08, 2008 3:30pm - 5:00pm

Radio Lab Executive Producer Ellen Horne will offer a few case studies out of the Radio Lab series which illustrate common problems in science reporting and some novel attempts to address these issues. Starting with the boring or impenetrable scientist, she will take us from interview prep to final product. We will also consider and explore cases when the urge toward simplification comes dangerously close to misrepresentation and how to step back from the brink of crossing that line.
