About this Episode

In this, our final episode of season 2, Dan chats with Dr. Timothy Persons, the chief scientist and one of the managing directors for the Government Accountability Office. We don’t often think about this part of the US government, but they do the essential behind the scenes work of offering scientific, economic, and sociological insight, oversight and foresight into all policies and laws put forward by Congress. Dr. Persons holds degrees in Nuclear Physics, Biomedical Engineering, Computer Science, and Executive Leadership and offers us an insightful look into what faithfulness looks like in the worlds of science and public policy. In this secular age, Dr. Persons reminds us that “we live in miracles…science should engender awe because it points us to something bigger.”
