UnDisciplined: Consumer Genomics And Getting 'Good To Go'

Feb 8, 2019

This week on UnDisciplined, we're talking about the intersection of science and personal decision-making — and, of course, we're looking at it from two very different perspectives. 

First, we talked to a former geneticist who has tried out almost every consumer DNA test. 

Tina Hesman Saey has studied everything from tobacco to yeast in her days as a researcher, and today helps people better connect to science as the lead writer for Science News. We also chatted with a former lab researcher who has taken a deep dive into the science of exercise recovery. 

Christie Aschwanden is a former researcher, the lead science writer at FiveThirtyEight and the author of a new book, "Good to Go: What the Athlete in All of Us Can Learn from the Strange Science of Recovery."
