Episode 9 — Stem Cells

Stem Cells ThumbStem cells — everybody talks about them, but how much do all these talking heads really know about them?

Listen in to this episode, and you’ll get a basic background in stem cells, and why you should care about them. What stem cells are, what they’re useful for, what kinds have ethical concerns attached, and which shouldn’t — it’s all in here for your listening pleasure. I also talk about some promising new news from Japan — the dawn of guilt-free stem cells may be just down the road.
