More Episodes

Steve and Mike have a conversation about somatic gene editing, and whether or not we should be tinkering with humanities source code. 

Content Note: On this episode we talk about population level genetic engineering, an idea that has an extremely fraught history, including some horrific detours into forced sterilization and Eugenics.

While we try to keep things light on this podcast, we fully understand that these topics can be sensitive. We hope that this episode tackles the topic with nuance and clarity, and welcome your thoughts.  

We also understand if some people might want to skip this one. While we only touch upon the darker aspects of genetic manipulation in passing, it still might be uncomfortable territory for some.
