Science Power Hour host Vern Blazek interviews Kavin Senapathy, co-founder of March Against Myths About Modification. Known as MAMyths, the organization opposes misinformation from March Against Monsanto, a grassroots movement that began with anti-GMO sentiment, but has since entered conspiracy theory territory.  Blazek and Senapathy discuss how MAMyths began, what united the co-founders, and how they plan to fight myths and fear mongering with science and evidence-based information.
