Adam Mastroianni is a social psychologist and the author of Experimental History, available on Substack. But what is Substack? And is it a good vehicle for science communication? Adam shares his experiences writing for a non-academic audience and also reflects on the role of “science communication” in the world. Should there be a division between the scientists and the science communicators? What is a scientist’s responsibility in keeping in touch with the public?
We also discuss his new article in The Atlantic: “I Ruined Two Birthday Parties and Learned the Limits of Psychology.”
