STORIFY: TalkFest – Science Communication and Political Divides.

A common caricature of science is that it likes to think of itself as above politics; a disinterested, purely empirical interaction with the natural world. But what about the public communication of science? The May TalkFest event was held tonight at the Biochemical Society with guests Alice Bell, Simon Lewis, Steve Cross, Michael Brooks and Felicity Mellor asking whether science communication can ever be apolitical and whether it should even try.

The event was recorded and the podcast will be posted at http://www.biochemistry.org/SciencePolicy/Events/TalkfestMay2012.aspx, but in the meantime Nature London was there and we have created a Storify for those who missed it.
