How should science deal with the public’s demand for scrutiny?

I was on BBC Radio 3s Night Waves last night, discussing how science should deal with increasing public scrutiny with the science writers Gabrielle Walker and Marcus Chown.

If you missed it, you can listen again on BBC iplayer. We start at 16:45, after Malcolm Maclarens obituary.

It was an interesting and rather wide-ranging discussion, covering peer review, certainty and the danger of consensus. Do you agree with our analysis? Were we completely off the mark? Id be interested to hear your thoughts in the comments below.
