Academic censorship and the mainstream media

In this week's The Part-Time Show podcast by Dr Kapil Amarasinghe, he digs into his recent experience working on the frontines of the Covid-19 pandemic in the UK to examine the ways in which the media are used in the portrayal of science and facts to shape public opinion and how the academic community has choosen to respond.

"Only by fully and mutually listening to each other and not dismissing each other’s points of view are we going to find a coherent strategy to this pandemic."

Believe me, this is 15 minutes well spent!
