Jul 29, 2020

Tune into Cool Science Radio Thursday, July 30, at 9:06 am after The Local News Hour and NPR News. John Wells and Lynn Ware Peek's first guest is writer, speaker, and academic, Colin Dickey, who has written The Unidentified: Mythical Monsters, Alien Encounters, And Our Obsession With The Unexplained. Even though we live in a world where rational, scientific explanations are more available than ever, belief in the unprovable and irrational is on the rise: from Atlantis to aliens, the list goes on. The second guest on Cool Science Radio is John Fischman, senior  editor from Scientific American magazine who will discuss recent studies showing that even animals practice social distancing when survival of the species is at stake; he also discusses the latest science on COVID-19.
