On this edition of Your Call’s One Planet series, historian Dr. Audra Wolfe joins us to discuss her new book, Freedom’s Laboratory: The Cold War Struggle for the Soul of Science.
She explores science’s links to US propaganda and psychological warfare campaigns during the Cold War and uncovers the close relationship between the US government and private scientific groups. What is the relationship between science and structures of power? And what role should science play in today’s world?
