“Science is not infallible.” The words of Donald Frazier, namesake of the Donald T. Frazier Outreach Center for Science and Health Career Opportunities at the University of Kentucky. Our discussion with Dr. Frazier about how to calibrate our expectations of science begins an hour that includes the latest on environmental science education in Kentucky; J.R.R. Tolkien as a teacher of environmental science; a school in the forest, about the forest; and, a book about what to do when your hike in the woods brings you eye-to-eye with a creature.

Tom Martin is the host of Eastern Standard, a weekly radio magazine of interviews and stories about interesting people, places, and things happening in the Commonwealth.
