This is an edited sound recording of science journalist and broadcaster, Robyn Williams, talking about communicating science to the Australian public and the challenges of overcoming 'woeful ignorance' and 'tremendous confusion'. He suggests that the media and modern education hamper public understanding of science by encouraging a tendency to expect instant answers, and suggests educators should be encouraging the public to think of science in terms of ideas, rather than as a body of information. It was made in December 2008.
