)-- Join host Alex Tsakiris when he interviews Dr. Peter A. Sturrock about science, and discoveries that fall outside of the mainstream. During the interview Dr. Sturrock explains why scientists need to consider alternative viewpoints and theories even if they are controversial. He also explains the need for the journal he edits:
“…this depends on whether we think that science is all worked out or whether it's, let's say, an ongoing process. If we think that scientists know all there is to know, then there is no need for the, the Journal for Scientific Exploration, but if we think science is an ongoing process that has problems to work through and work out, and some of which are ignored by mainstream science, and many of which are of interest to the public, then there's a real need for the Journal of Scientific Exploration.”
