ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Dissecting the statements and work of contemporary scientists studying human biodiver-sity, most of whom claim to be just following the data, Angela shows us how, again and again, even mainstream scientists cling to the idea that race is biologically real. As our understanding of complex traits like intelligence, and the effects of environmental and cultural influences on human beings, from the molecular level on up, grows, the hope of finding simple genetic differences between “races”—to explain differing rates of disease, to explain poverty or test scores, or to justify cultural assumptions—stubbornly persists.
Angela Saini is an award-winning science journalist and broadcaster. She regularly pre-sents science programmes on the BBC, and her writing has appeared in New Scientist, the Guardian, The Sunday Times, and Wired.
Her latest book is Superior: the Return of Race Science is published by Beacon Press.
