The Skeptics’ Guide tackles GM Foods

One of our favourite podcasts is The Skeptics’ Guide to the Universe, a weekly guide to all things sceptical and sciency from around the world. Its host, Steven Novella, is a brilliant communicator and a true polymath: knowledgable about a huge number of subjects in the world of science. News stories from Ireland get an occasional mention (we’re looking at you Steorn).

As luck might have it, and following on from Eoin’s recent talk in Blackrock Castle, one of their recent episodes focused on the issue of GM Foods. In this podcast, they interview Dr. Kevin Folta of the Horticultural Sciences Department in the University of Florida. If you get a chance it’s worth a listen.
