  3. Dr Natália Pasternak: How science denialism is fuelling the Covid-19 crisis in Brazil

    Brazil has surpassed the UK in the number of confirmed cases and deaths of Covid-19. Still, the federal government refuses to acknowledge reality and relies on magical thinking and denialism, promoting miracle cures, withholding information, spreading lies and inciting riots.

    Join Natália Pasternak for a look at the Brazilian response to the pandemic, and what happens when a government embraces pseudoscience in the face of an international health crisis.

  4. Angela Saini: The Return of Race Science

    As ethnic nationalism and the far-right become stronger, race science is experiencing a revival. Even well-intentioned scientists, through their unconscious use of old-fashioned categories, betray some suspicion that race has some basis in biology. Award-winning author Angela Saini explores the concept of race, from its origins to the present day, explores why we find it so hard to let go of the notion that race is biologically real, and the political consequences of this dangerous idea.

  7. Dr Nick Brown: Spotting science that just doesn't add up

    The skeptical movement rightly suggests that people should place more faith in peer-reviewed scientific articles than in YouTube videos, Nick Brown will give some examples of how peer-reviewed scientific work that may attract a lot of public attention can contain remarkably elementary errors that can be detected by readers with relatively little mathematical expertise.
