A CRISPR Bite
CRISPR gene-editing technology came out as a massive biotech breakthrough in the last decade, but most people have still never heard of it. In this five-part series, food anthropologist Dr. Lauren Crossland-Marr takes listeners into the labs where researchers are tinkering with food genes, to help break down the problems they’re hoping to solve – and what’s at stake.

"It can be a podcast for casual listening, it’s easy enough to understand informationally and production-wise. I have a feeling that people listening to this podcast are already interested in where their food comes from, and what’s happening to it - rather than people stumbling upon this one for a first-time foray into the ethics and thoughts behind food."

"If you like the way Gastropod blends food and science to teach us more about what we’re eating, you’ll love A CRISPR Bite...gives you all the background context and history of how our food is being modified, but also critically examines this process...I found myself immediately going to the next one to find out what’s been happening with tomatoes. It’s fascinating and feels almost like science fiction!"
