Heredity isn’t just about genes that pass from parent to child, argues acclaimed science journalist Carl Zimmer. We also inherit other things that matter as much - or more - to our lives, from microbes to technologies we use to make life more comfortable. Weaving original reporting with historical context and his own experiences as the father of two daughters, Zimmer calls for a radically new definition of heredity. Join us in conversation with this original thinker as he takes us on a journey of discovery about who we are, where we came from, and what we can pass on to future generations.
Speaker: Carl Zimmer, New York Times and author; Annalee Newitz, Author
