PODCAST | Some love them, some hate them, some don't care: GMOs

Sesquile Ramon, Beth Linas
Dec 1, 2016

Sesquile Ramon (2015-17 Executive Branch Fellow) dives into a discussion of ghenetically modified organisms (GMOs) and why some people love them, some don’t trust them, and some don’t care as long as they taste good. Three more fellows -- Daniel Hicks, Ariela Zycherman, and Marit Wilkerson -- discuss where we get policies regulating consumption of genetically engineered food, explore their legislative history, their perceived risk, and their potential use as a tool to combat the complex challenges of climate change.
