Cracked Science 4: 23andMe and Personalized Genetic Testing

 

After countless hours of idea generating, explorations, and post-production work, here is the new iteration of the biweekly show I do for the McGill Office for Science and Society: Cracked Science.

In the vein of Last Week Tonight, the show tackles important topics (mine having to do with science and pseudoscience) with humour. This episode explores what the average person gets from buying a kit from 23andMe or from a similar, direct-to-consumer genetic testing company.

Do you find out important information about your health? Are the tests reliable? And what if you're Black or Asian?
