      For me, I think the discussion about ethics on the 3rd show was really interesting. There are so many medical developments happening at the moment and that means we have more decisions to make about what is ethical and what becomes questionable.

      I liked the discussion about the history of modern humans – our evolution in Africa and spread out of it, and how we carry the legacy of our Neanderthal and Denisovan ancestors in our genomes still. I think that people don’t know enough about how we got here, both in the short term (hundreds of years) and long term (tens of thousands of years).
