Tomorrow, September 1, Jean Feraca of Wisconsin Public Radio’s Here on Earth: Radio Without Borders will present Science, The Media, and the Public Debates. If you miss the original show airing at 3 p.m., the show will be rebroadcast at 9 p.m. here.
The debate about stem-cell research has flared up again since a federal judge put a halt to it last week. What are the cultural and political factors that influence such scientific issues? What makes them take a different course in different countries?
• Dominique Brossard, Associate Professor of Life Sciences and Communication at University of Wisconsin-Madison
