Not a Book, But I am Certain Someone Here Can Help

Posted by whyintellectual on 2017.03.22 at 13:45
Alright, I fully admit this is not a book but all of my friends here are bookish and perhaps can help me anyway. I will absolutely remove this if an admin asks.

I am looking for an NPR audio story I heard twice in June 2016. I thought it was This American Life or Radiolab or even All Things Considered but I have browsed the archives and cannot find the full audio.
The audio included an interview with John Bohannon about his fake chocolate study. It also included information on why the Internet and media spreads false information so quickly. There was a reference to celebrity influence (example mentioned: Beyonce and her detox with cayenne pepper an honey) There was also data on how medical studies are manipulated with a reference to number crushing.

I am desperate to find it again so any help would be incredibly appreciated.

Thanks, I found that too. I am looking for the full, hour long audio that went in depth on research and its manipulation. :(

So John Bohannon has a website and it invites folks to contact him. Might be worth dropping him an email and seeing if he can point you in the direction of the full interview. Worst that can happen is nothing!
