Episode Info:

In the latest installment of our series on "fake news," Lauren and I are joined by Drs. Lorraine Daston and Peter Galison, experts on the history and philosophy of science. Together we trace the history of objectivity, from the schools of Medieval European philosophy to the penny presses of Nineteenth Century America, and all the way up to the January 2017 Women's March on Washington. We debate whether journalistic objectivity has a future in the era of "fake news."
