Do It Yourself


    Gene editing is quickly moving from high-tech labs into middle school classrooms and even people’s kitchens. Will this finally bring us spicy tomatoes and vanilla basil, or dangerous super bugs? On this episode, we explore all kinds of DIY approaches in health and science. Tinkering with genes, ordering your own medical tests, detoxing from drugs by yourself,  creating a gigantic online map for birders. And – your stories of DIY success and failure.
