    This Biotech Startup is Making Fake 3-D Rhino Horn in the Lab. But can it be sold... in time to save the rhinos? - Pembient's Matthew Markus

    Pembient is a company making big chunks of realistic fake rhino horn in the lab.

In this episode, Pembient's CEO and Co-Founder Matthew Markus talks about the potential he sees in the niche biofabricated wildlife product industry. He also shares some of the biggest challenges to actually getting it to market, and addresses some of the controversy surrounding Pembient’s unique approach. Music interlude created by Lee Rosevere.
