A leading expert on the public understanding of science argues that scientists should stop criticising each other's attempts to communicate science to the masses. Kathy Sykes, professor of sciences and society at the University of Bristol, has argued that experts are always attacking each other either for "dumbing down" or being elitist. She discusses her comments with Ben Goldacre, who writes a science column for the Guardian.
