This week, Kevin Bachelder joins Summer to chat with bioethicist Dr Gregory Pence to talk about his new book, What We Talk About When We Talk About Clone Club: Bioethics and Philosophy in Orphan Black.
Using the science and the situations in Orphan Black, Dr Pence takes us on a deeper look at the science and the ethics of cloning, an exploration of self and identity when faced with identical twins as well as clones, the problematic history of eugenics, the questions raised by synthetic biology, of the influence of epigenetics, and much more.
