Today host Mitch Jeserich interviews Sociology Professor Antony Alumkal about his new book “Paranoid Science: The Christian Right’s War on Reality.” The book explains how and why Christian leaders came to see scientific truths as hostile.

Then Jeserich talks to science writer Dava Sobel about her book “A More Perfect Heaven: How Copernicus Revolutionized the Cosmos.” Sobel chronicles the journey that led to the publication of one of the world’s most important scientific manuscripts, Copernicus’s heliocentric theory.
