Talking Biotech Podcast

The safe and powerful technologies of genetic engineering have had tremendous impacts in agriculture and medicine. However, future innovation and deployment of beneficial technologies are slowed by a lack of understanding and insufficient science communication efforts. This podcast is presented to help connect the public to current science and technology, and help scientists share the stories of how science can help our farmers, industrialized world consumers, the environment, and the Developing World. The hope is that this resource can entertain and explain how new tools can improve food security, reduce poverty, and improve agricultural and medical practices. This podcast and website are produced and funded by Kevin Folta.
