Episode Description

Welcome back once again to The Method Section. This week Tom is talking about being wrong! Something that we are all so afraid of and learn in school as a bad thing, but in reality is the underpinning nature of science and our knowledge. Find out what about being wrong in science, the power of peer review and some big failures that led to monumental discoveries!
