Episode Info:

This week, we're discussing how James Watson, winner of the Nobel Prize for discovering the structure of DNA, caught heat for making comments about race, genetics, and intelligence.

For our book discussion, we're diving into Inferior by Angela Saini and looking at how science and society can feed into one another when it comes to bias. Plus, we look at Angela's upcoming book "Superior" and discuss our hopes (and fears) for it.
