Episode 14: GMOs and Monsanto

Grab any food product out of your cupboard and you’re probably looking at something with ingredients derived from genetic engineering. GMOs – genetically modified organisms – are ubiquitous in the U.S. food supply and in controversies raging about scientific and corporate manipulation of what we eat. What is the science of GMOs – are they safe? Is the (typically left-wing) skepticism of these “Frankenfoods” warranted? Join us as we discuss these topics and critique the behemoth looming over our dinner table – Monsanto.
