Genetics Unzipped is a Podcast from the UK Genetics Society

Genetics Unzipped is the podcast from the UK Genetics Society – one of the oldest learned societies dedicated to supporting and promoting the research, teaching and application of genetics. It is a fortnightly podcast that was launched ahead of the Society’s centenary celebrations in 2019.

Presented by award-winning science writer and former Naked Genetics/Naked Scientists podcast host Kat Arney and produced by First Create the Media, Genetics Unzipped will bring you a wide range of stories from the world of genetics, genomics and DNA.

Filling the gap of the popular Naked Genetics podcast, listeners can expect to hear interviews with experts from around the world, all the latest science news, and a special centenary series celebrating 100 ideas in genetics.

The first episode of Genetics Unzipped was released on December 12, 2018. It is a brief introduction to what to expect from the podcast.

Episode two was posted on December 20, 2018. It is titled “Behind the scenes at the Christmas Lectures”. It focuses on the 2018 Royal Institution Christmas Lectures with professors Alice Roberts and Aoife McLysaght. The episode includes an interview with evolutionary biologist Alice Roberts, and with molecular geneticist Aoefe McLysaght.

Episode three was posted on January 3, 2019. It is titled: “Hunting Huntington’s, Nobel viruses and spidergoats”. This one might be of interest to genealogists and family historians who have a family history of Huntington’s disease. The episode will also take a look at the special place that viruses hold in the history of genetic research.

There are more episodes to come! They could be about anything related to genetics. People who are highly interested in the results of their direct-to-consumer DNA test could find this podcast to be very interesting. Genetics Unzipped is available from Apple Podcasts, Google Play, Stitcher, Blubrry, TuneIn, Spotify, Spreaker, and all good podcast apps.
