In this episode we have a lively discussion about the genetic roots of cancer, how carcinogens get involved, how to communicate that to the public, and how the public can arm themselves against those who try to manipulate science to suit their own ends.

And we did this with two great writers on the subject: Dan Fagin, author of “Toms River : A Story of Science and Salvation”, and Jessica Wapner, author of “The Philadelphia Chromosome : A Mutant Gene and the Quest to Cure Cancer at the Genetic Level”.
