Today's guest is no stranger to drama and controversy, and he may have helped you pass a test or two in school…
Meet Dave Farina, better known as Professor Dave Explains!
Dave is a popular science communicator, chemist, author, and proprietor of one of the largest science YouTube channels in the world.
Dave and I first got in contact after I published an interview with someone who Dave claims is a charlatan, and of course, that sparked my interest, and I knew I had to get Dave on the show, too, so he could state his case properly.
Join us as we discuss the heated drama between Dave and the Discovery Institute, science deniers, faith, and the concept of lying.
