71C4ZQudlaL.jpg

The relationship between politicians and scientists in the US has always been complicated…and that was especially true during the cold war.

Today on the Best of Our Knowledge, we’ll talk about the cold war struggle for the soul of science.

Then we’ll hear how laptops have become standard equipment in college classrooms across the country, and how using that technology in that setting isn’t always a good thing.

And we’ll spend an Academic Minute exploring the intersection of STEM and the humanities.
