Single Best: Laura Helmuth

Today we continue our series Single Best, where we ask top science writers and editors to give us their single best piece of advice, given or taken; or their single best idea, reporting trip or memorable experience. Here, Laura Helmuth shares a bit of wisdom she learned from Molly Ivins.

Helmuth is the science and health editor at Slate and a member of the National Association of Science Writers executive board.

Videography by Evan Howell and made possible with a generous grant from the Burroughs Wellcome Fund.
