In addition to the usual rundown of B2B news, hosts Paul Gillin and Eric Schwartzman talk with Naomi Oreskes on the latest episode of FIR B2B. Oreskes is co-author of "Merchants of Doubt," the book that inspired the currently-screening documentary about companies employing PR to cast doubt on science. It's well-worth your time.
