    Modern gender tests rely on testosterone, despite inconclusive science around the hormone.

    Today we're joined by Katrina Karkazis. She’s the co-author of “Testosterone: An Unauthorized Biography.”

Love the science (and the host)

I love how informative and rooted in research everything is. Even as someone who would consider myself fairy knowledge about these topics, I learned a lot and gained perspective/new ways of thinking. Also, unlike some of the other reviews, I find the host’s voice very nice and relaxing (personal preference, I guess). This podcast was one of the things that finally pushed me over the edge in subscribing to clue plus (yay!)

Wowrealgood ,

The things I learn on this podcast are useful and empowering, and I’ve really enjoyed it!
