In this episode we are discussing whether science is broken or whether it is self-correcting, and whether the Open Science movement is evidence that science does in fact self-correct. Our interview guest will be Daniel Engber who is a science journalist from Slate magazine. We will cover problems and challenges in the practice of science, what can be done to improve the situation, and how Open Science principles are helping to change things.
