 Adam and Davita are joined by the wonderful author Kate Hall. Kate is currently working on a dystopian novel around xenotransplantation. She provides a powerful critique of the practice of using animal-to-human transplants. She also introduces us to her protagonist Mouse by reading a few vivid excerpts from her novel in progress.
