Science communicators do almost as much bad science as anyone. This talk blows the lid off some of the huge mistakes the media has made, some terrible but popular so-called "skeptical" explanations for famous phenomena. It's a lot of fun, covers a lot of ground, and exposes a lot of stories and urban legends you've heard of. The concepts it presents -- thinking errors, perceptual errors, preconceived notions and biases -- are universally applicable to professionals in any industry or to students in any subject.
