That’s Stephen Martin. He and Joseph Marks are the authors of the book Messengers: Who We Listen To, Who We Don’t, and Why. Martin and Marks will tell you a bit about their backgrounds in a moment. They were in New York City before the coronavirus pandemic, so we had the now rare pleasure of meeting in person at Scientific American’s offices.
