EP60 – Muscled babies [w/ Martin Moder]

In this episode we discuss what is human optimization and how often do we update our chromosomes.

Martin Moder tells us:

  • What’s the link between rats and xenophobia?
  • Can we create babies that are ripped?
  • Whose intelligence do adopted children inherit – that of their birth or foster parents?
  • Why creativity is one step away from schizophrenia and anorexia?

Martin also explained why there is not one ideal genome and what is the best way to optimize yourself starting today.
