The last week I could not stop listening. I listened to all the podcasts from their start 2017 and am so impressed. They sum uo what has happened since the dawn of genetics/genomics in a way I really like. They mix scientifically evidenced knowledge with frontline research, interview knowledeable people, review interesting books and report their personal experiences in this field in an absorbing way. I've a background doing research on messenger-RNA in the 1960s in Jan-Erik Edströms group at the Karolinska Institue and I am so impressed by the gigantic leap this branch of histology has made.

Genetics is moving extremely fast, and this podcast helps me feel as if I'm keeping up.

It covers human genetics, and what genetics reveals about our history from a variety of different perspectives drawn from data.
