Science, Uncertainty, and "The Hunt for Vulcan"

Today, I'm listening to a science podcast from earlier this month, "How the Planet Vulcan Changed Science Forever":
In the podcast, which runs in FiveThirtyEight’s What’s The Point feed, senior science writer Maggie Koerth-Baker, lead science writer Christie Aschwanden and senior editor Blythe Terrell talk through how science ideas evolve over time — and how challenging that process can be.

The second part of this month’s podcast features Christie interviewing [Thomas] Levenson about [his] book, [The Hunt for Vulcan].
I'll have to add Levenson's book to my reading list. And if you want to read ahead for next month's podcast, they'll be talking about "Flavor" by Bob Holmes.
