Indre welcomes back Sam Kean, the New York Times bestselling author of The Icepick Surgeon, The Bastard Brigade, Caesar's Last Breath, The Tale of the Dueling Neurosurgeons, and more. Sam has won many awards for his writing, and he's been featured on Radiolab, All Things Considered, and of course, Inquiring Minds. His own podcast, The Disappearing Spoon, is also high up on the iTunes science charts. Sam joins the show to discuss his latest book, which features true crime stories about scientists who take things too far. He also talks about his goal to demonstrate that there may be some bad actors within the scientific realm, and what we can learn from the ways in which science steers people wrong.
