First, on the Adam Ruins Everything TV show, Adam Conover broke down widespread misconceptions about everything we take for granted. Now, join Adam as he sits down with the experts and stars from the show to go into even more detail.
Science journalist John Bohannon, who appeared on the nutrition episode of Adam Ruins Everything, joins us on this week's podcast!
John is fascinating - he's a contributing correspondent for Science magazine and has a Ph.D. in molecular biology from Oxford University. His experience in both academia and journalism has led to an inventive approach to exposing the flaws of science journalism and specifically nutrition journalism.
On the episode, John and Adam discuss John's fake chocolate study, his latest expose on Sci-Hub, and much more.
Adam is joined by Bruce Schneier to talk about current problems facing the TSA, gun control, and how data and security intersect.
One of the topics that resonated deeply with last season's Adam Ruins Everything viewers was Bruce Schneier's take on security and "security theater". So we had to bring Bruce on the podcast. Bruce is a brilliant cryptographer and security expert, who's written countless articles and academic papers and published 13 books, including Data and Goliath: The Hidden Battles to Collect Your Data and Control Your World.
Produced by Shara Morris.
Emily Axford plays Adam's foil on Adam Ruins Everything, but on this week's podcast, Emily's front and center. She also happens to be just as hilarious and charming in person as she is on the show.
Adam and Emily go way back - they began working together at College Humor - and the laughs never stopped.
On the episode, the two go from deep discussions on aliens and dreams to Emily's yet-to-be-created video game called Space Bears.
Adam and Caitlin discuss the bizarre world of funeral conventions, body compositing, and get deep about the afterlife.
