This podcast from June 23, 2009 and the third Communications Fair for National Academies staff is the recording of the talk by Phil Plait. Phil Plait is an astronomer, author, and skeptic whose blog is consistently ranked among the most popular online science columns. Phil has a long history of debunking pseudo-science. By clearing up misconceptions, most often in space science and astronomy, he brings greater visibility to science in general while also revealing the accurate and often more astonishing nature of the universe. In this humorous but informative talk, Phil discusses the ways in which science communication has been changed by the internet. He looks at how blogging, online media, and even Twitter have been able to spread science information -- and frustratingly, misinformation - to millions of people.
