January 21 - Discuss the film "Science Friction"

This January, NCAS presents a different kind of event. We invite you to watch the documentary "Science Friction" BEFORE January 21, 2023 (see below for ways to watch). Then join us that Saturday, January 21 at 1:30 PM EST for an online Q & A with Executive Producer Brian Dunning.

From the film's website:

"Finally, a documentary about scientists who get misrepresented by the media.
Those TV documentaries you see, and the science experts they feature? Did you know that producers often edit them out of context, and twist their words, to make it seem like they promoted some pop sensationalism instead of the real facts?

'Science Friction' exposes this practice and gives the scientists a chance to clear the record."

Executive Producer Brian Dunning is the host of "Skeptoid", the award-winning weekly science podcast. Since 2006, Skeptoid has been revealing the true science behind popular misinformation and urban legends.
