The Truth is Out There, Isn't It? -- The program looks at the strange moments when knowledge is not power. Issues like gun control, nuclear power, vaccinations, and climate change consistently divide the public along ideological lines. If the issues were explained better, would it help? Host Stephen Dubner looks into the puzzle of why learning more only makes people more stubborn. And the show looks into conspiracy theories to see how people form their own version of the truth -- even when the data contradict it.
