As mentioned on Twitter, I was at Norwescon this weekend! One of the most delightful parts was the interview session with special guest Seanan McGuire, who is also Mira Grant. I don’t have that to share with you, but I do have this from her book tour last fall for her book Parasite (which IS about genetically engineered parasites, and yes, it’s touched on in the video).
Minute 7 – how having a genetically engineered tapeworm could affect weight loss.
Minute 9:45 – could write a very socially-shaming book along the lines of “now that my PCOS doesn’t prevent me from losing weight, you actually think I deserve decent medical care?”
Minute 11:50 – poop transfers & your personal biome
Minute 25 – on bacteria & how antibiotics are overused
Minute 29 – on how drugs are mislegislated and miscontrolled
Minute 39:55 – on morning person encountering a night person
Minute 42 – “Do you honestly think it’s better to be dead than autistic?”
Watch and enjoy ;)
