good radio program

I especially enjoyed the program about genes and ethics.

What this program almost says is that the always-broadly referred to "genetics" is a cultural remnant of eugenics. When you overhear someone having a conversation about genes (which is in this context about as scientific as phrenology) being responsible for something as abstract as crime, voices in your head ought to be saying "If I'm not white, I should go now", because some very stupid people are very nearby, and they may not even realize they're setting themselves up for a good old-fashioned episode of race-hatin', which has been known to result in premature death.

And if you don't want to be a lil' Hitler, it is incumbent upon you to both understand and be able to articulate to those less fortunate, the difference between genes' scientific and cultural relevance. Hit it!
