Out d’Coup | INTERVIEW: Dave Levitan on His New Book, “Not a Scientist: How Politicians Mistake, Misrepresent, and Utterly Mangle Science;” Sean Checks in from California

August 17, 2017

On today's show, Kevin is talking with Dave Levitan about his new book, Not a Scientist: How Politicians Mistake, Misrepresent, and Utterly Mangle Science. Levitan's book is a great tool to identify and cut through some of the rhetorical strategies politicians use in pursuit of their ideological agendas. We talk climate change, anti-vax, NASA, and more! Levitan will be visiting the Midtown Scholar Bookstore in Harrisburg on August 26th at 4 pm to discuss his book and sign copies.

And, believe it or not, Sean Kitchen is still alive in California. We were able to grab a few minutes to talk Charlottesville, National Parks, beer, and Daryl Metcalfe - aka - the crack in the PA Republican's pipe. And, of course, we talk new beer releases at Free Will Brewery and Pizza Boy.
