The origin story of Unbiased Science began with the COVID-19 pandemic. Dr. Jessica Steier and Dr. Andrea Love realized that their friends and family were reaching out to them to make sense of all the information that was being hurled at them in terms of headlines. They were individually educating their networks, but then they decided to join forces and create Unbiased Science. The podcast was formalized after they did some joint Facebook lives and Instagram lives for their networks, and people commented on their chemistry and how comprehensively they were covering these topics.
Unbiased Science provides a framework for thinking about how to approach information and misinformation. They cover a wide range of topics, including vaccines, COVID-19, nutrition, mental health, and more. They aim to provide evidence-based information and to debunk myths and misconceptions. They also provide tips on how to evaluate sources of information and how to be critical consumers of information.
