The Sixth Extinction, New Food Labels, and Designer Babies

Hosted by

The Food and Drug Administration has had a busy week. For the first time in 20 years, the FDA is re-thinking the nutrition labels on food. It’s also looking into a procedure called “three-parent in vitro fertilization” that could help women carrying a genetic disorder have healthy babies. Elizabeth Kolbert talks with Madeleine about our world’s sixth great extinction: the one currently being caused by humans. We take a look at a new film depiction of Jesus - and the many other ways he has been portrayed on the screen. And we look into a report about border patrol brutality.
