Science journalist Carl Zimmer argues that heredity isn’t just about genes that pass from parent to child, but also about other things that matter as much—or more—to our lives. Zimmer’s new book is She Has Her Mother’s Laugh.

He’s joined in conversation by journalist, editor and author Annalee Newitz.

David Kwan is the editor and producer of Binah, featuring remarkable artists and thinkers who’ve come to speak at the Jewish Community Center of San Francisco as part of their Arts & Ideas program.
