Redaction Politics Podcast Ep. 16 – Why do people mistrust the experts?

EXPERTS have come under fire in recent years.

From Michael Gove telling Sky News that the public have ‘had enough of experts’ to Trump playing down the threat of Covid-19.

But with the pandemic not going away and global warming reaching crisis point, the scientist and researchers under attack are needed now more than ever.

This week, the Redaction Politics podcast team look into why experts were targeted by politicians, what it means to identify as an expert, and how experts can regain the trust of the electorate.
