This week Karin Goodwin, co-editor of The Ferret, joins Ali to talk misinformation, sewage and how you can tell if you’re speaking to an expert.
Ali spoke to Professor Thora Tenbrink, a real expert on linguistics and communication, who explained how to spot the subtle signs that someone doesn’t know what they’re talking about, no matter how confidently they say it.
