Audio: Another Interview with prof Dietram Scheufele

Dietram Scheufele is a professor of mass communications at the University of Madison-Wisconsin, who has done a national study in the US of the impact Internet comments have on science journalism.

I spoke with him just before the website Popular Science closed it’s comments because “comments can be bad for science”.

I asked him about the impact of comments on the public understanding of science, and the future of online comments in general.
