This episode is a great primer for an essay or even series of essays challenging "Science". In the current time and foreseeable future science and how we react to it is and will be of the highest importance.
First it's important to understand that science is about peer review and replication. It is this process leads to things being confirmed and disavowed, and the real value of science. See the comment below...
Stuart Ritchie has a TON of information that shows where and what bad science is. Stuart clams as much as 30% of published and peer reviewed science may be bogus. He also has some great tips on how one might determine the good from the bad.
The episode has tons of other citable research mentioned, and the book even more. Take good notes :)
