The Frameshift

A podcast about genomics, bioethics, and the future of our species.

Bona Fides

I’m not a specialist in behavioral genetics, bioethics, or any adjacent field. I have, however, read quite a lot in all these fields and feel I’m in the unique position of being able to synthesize across them. My hope is that my curiosity and breadth of knowledge, combined with the depth of knowledge of the specialists I interview, will enable cross-pollination among academic disciplines, leading to meaningful conversations.


I’m able to work on this podcast thanks to a generous grant from Emergent Ventures. Any views expressed on this site or on the podcast are solely my own and do not reflect those of Emergent Ventures or The Mercatus Center.
