*on doing the no-no

Art by Lauren Kolesinskas

I’m obsessed with the 2019 limited Netflix series Un-Natural Selection. I don’t know how I missed this show. I’m not sure why whenever I am relying on Netflix to suggest things to me they throw so much crap my way, meanwhile fucking art like Un-Natural Selection or Midnight Gospel come to me late and through the grapevine!

If you haven’t watched Un-Natural Selection, it’s a variety of documentary style episodes following today’s pioneers in gene-editing techniques, artificial intelligence, and people suffering through genetic disorders or currently incurable diseases. The show presents a complex situation of humanity talking about the issues of gene editing, confronting ethical and technological challenges, and allows the viewer to form their own opinions. I love it, and immediately recommended it to my Grandma.

It reminds me of a Love and Radio episode I absolutely loved and have listened to times over: Doing the No No. The episode interviews Adam Zaretsky, a self-described bioartist, mad scientist, and pornographer!

  1. Sounds right up my alley! And Netflix missed suggesting it to me too, despite all the other science documentaries I have saved on there. Their algorithms confuse me.

    I have an additional recommendation for you, Year Million on Disney+ is a fantastic thought provoker! Top notch digital graphics design and acting takes you through the changes society will undergo in the next few hundred years as technology continues to rapidly change.

      1. Started watching Unnatural Selection and I’m thoroughly enjoying it. I appreciate the balance of representation between positives and negatives and I’m blown away by how far the average individual can go. The world is changing again.
