Who Cares What Science Says? Chris Volpe on Why Some of Us Care and Some Don't

Through its research into how the public sees the role that science plays in their lives, Science Counts has set itself the task of discovering what is needed to strengthen America’s commitment to science. In this episode, Alan Alda talks with Chris about how to make science more relatable and understandable.
