Genetic diversity and the language of race

Dr Adam Rutherford  | 

Today, where we are in the 21st century, genetics, anthropology and evolutionary biology are no ally to racists. In fact, they should be used as weapons against bigotry.

In this week’s episode of The G Word, Chris Wigley is joined by Dr Adam Rutherford, geneticist, author and broadcaster. Adam has produced several documentaries and books on genetics, is co-host of BBC Radio 4’s Inside Science and is an Honorary Senior Research Associate in the Division of Biosciences at University College London.

Today, Chris and Adam discuss how to empower individuals to tell their stories, genetic diversity and structures of bias, and a priceless movie prop.
