Seize the Moment Podcast

Jan 10, 2021

On episode 81, we welcome Professor Jonathan Berman to discuss the skepticism surrounding vaccine safety and efficacy - especially given the skepticism surrounding taking the Covid-19 vaccine in the midst of a global pandemic, the motives of the anti-vaccine movement and the cognitive distortions underlying their beliefs, how and why people gravitate toward conspiracy theories, how we can begin dialogues with people who hold anti-scientific beliefs, how scientists err in their communications with the public, the various arguments against vaccines, and whether there should be hope for creating a more science-friendly world.

Dr. Jonathan M Berman, PhD is a Renal Physiologist, science educator, and a science advocate. He served as national cochair of the 2017 March for Science. His new book is called Anti-vaxxer: How to Challenge a Misinformed Movement.
