Culture on My Mind
Your DNA is Everywhere
November 12, 2021
This week, I have Veritasium on my mind again. I’m fascinated by DNA testing and forensic applications. This video, years in the making, was catnip to me.
If one of your third cousins runs a DNA test, your DNA is essentially on file. No consent required.
The implications are both fascinating and frightening.
Happy Friday. See you again soon.
Culture on My Mind is inspired by the weekly Can’t Let It Go segment on the NPR Politics Podcast where each host brings one thing to the table that they just can’t stop thinking about.
