Fighting Goop and cheating death: Timothy Caulfield

Health News Review

Timothy Caulfield, a professor at the University of Alberta, is a bit like a superhero.

He can run fast, seemingly see through things clearly, and appear to be in several places at once.

And he wears a lot of capes: lawyer, author, watchdog, Royal Fellow, TV host, recovering rock star, and emerging social media star.

In this podcast he covers a lot of ground: the battle of science vs. hype, public trust in science, the importance of social media in health care journalism, the role of celebrity in pseudoscience, and the art of communicating health care information.
