Biomedicine and especially genetic medicine are among the most important and powerful cultural forces in our world today. This blog explores them from a historical and sometimes satirical point of view. My targets are hype, false promises, and hypocrisy, rather than any particular person or institution. Historical origins, cultural context, and humor are all ways of gaining a bit of perspective on the breathless world of biomedicine. Reflection and laughter can only help.

This is Sam Boykin. I’m an editor with The Charlotte Observer in North Carolina. Hope all is well. I write a column for the paper’s science and technology section where I do a brief q and a with scientists who write regular blogs–background, field of interest, interesting anecdotes, etc. Any chance you’re available/interested in doing a quick phone interview about Genotopia?
Hello. I’ll be happy to chat with you. I’ll send you an email and we can set it up.
My name is Jess and I’m a writer for BreakThru Radio, a multi-media platform covering independent music and media. I’m working on an article about 23andMe and genetic testing in general, and I was wondering if you’d be willing to chat with me?
If so, please email me back and we can set up a time for a brief 10 to 15 minute interview.
Thanks so much for your consideration!
I’ve been out of town–sorry for the slow response. I’d be happy to talk with you if you’re still interested. Email me at my gmail address, which is nccomfort.
