Season 3 Episode 16: Northern Lights, Dog Aggression and Dr. David Rand and Gordon Pennycook on why people spread misinformation
Jun 17, 2021 Season 3 Episode 16
Jason Zackowski with Bunsen Berner

This week on The Science Pawdcast, we chat about a new study that unlocked the physics of Northern Lights!  In Pet Science, we chat about a study that dug into what makes dogs aggressive.  Our expert guests are Dr. David Rand and Gordon Pennycook, who had their study about how misinformation spreads recently published in Nature.   It's an amazing discussion about what can cause everyday people to share information that is false online.   As this week was CRAZY we ran out of time for Woo or Wow, but there is a fun and silly family section at the end!

For Science, Empathy, and Cuteness!
