Episode 38 - The Future Of Food pt 3 - GMOs and Gene Editing

This week I talk about a controversial topic, genetically modified organisms and gene editing, and how these aspects of modern science can feed us far into the future. I will have links to the science on the show's web page, for my part I focus on the basics and the benefits of GMOs and gene editing for food production.

Also, metamaterial news, new planets, and the Hubble Constant
