Get your science on with the new podcast from the Union of Concerned Scientists. Our hosts take on technology, attacks on science, climate change, and more, as they channel the power of science to make the world a better place.

Got Science? is a podcast from the Union of Concerned Scientists. It’s about how science makes the world a better place, and how scientists are standing up for science in the age of Trump. It’s the science, the people, the issues, the technologies, the policies, the public debate (or lack thereof).

We’ll be with you every other Tuesday to share inspiring stories of technical experts and citizens who are standing up for science, and cover new developments in science and technology that can help people live safer, healthier lives. And we’ll of course be pulling back the curtain on at attacks on science from the Trump administration and Congress.
