Episode 15 - The Ethics of gene editing, Broken Proverbs, Misheard Lyrics and the Rhythm of English Frenzied and Sustained

    • Comedy

With CRISPR Cas9 gene editing a dystopian future could be just twenty years away. We look at the developments and consider the risks, benefits and ethics.
In a Podcasting first we now introduce a podcast with colour, literally with Pantone 448C.
Our songs under the Microscope continues its voyage into misheard lyrics.

We stress test some common proverbs and found them inaccurate at best and the purveyor of very poor counsel at worst.

Finally, we consider how language dictates the rhythm and pace of poetry and prose that can be written. Ian takes exception to the rule that you cannot write a Limerick in French; so he writes one.
