Back to Basics: Freedom implies justice; justice requires truth; truth is built on facts.

Science and Technology drive society forward and Science for the Rest of Us is here to talk about it. We have conversations with Nerds in the Know and do our best to illuminate the science underlying so much of our lives.

Science shouldn’t be the last word in our social and civic discourse – it should be the first. We can all strive to understand the basic science and facts underlying each issue, and then apply our social, ethical and religious values to the debate and plot a course forward -- together.

Science For the Rest of Us exists because it's much more fun to learn than it is to fight. After all, where is the time to hate when there is so little time to love?

A patient exploration of tough topics

Alex does a great job of patiently exploring scientific topics without rushing to conclusions or trying to impress people with jargon and complexities. He is focused on understanding and good communication. We need more of this kind of good communication in the natural sciences.
