President Trump on Wednesday announced the U.S. will lift sanctions on Turkey and also said that the ceasefire in northern Syria is now permanent. The safe zone in the area will now be enforced by Russia and Turkey. Missy Ryan, national security reporter at the Washington Post, joins us for the latest details and the Trump foreign policy doctrine. Next, scientists have created a new more powerful technique to edit genes. While most people may be familiar with CRISPR, this new method is called “prime editing” and it offers more precise gene cuts with less errors. Jackson Ryan, science editor at CNET, joins us more on this new gene editing technique that could enable treatment for approximately 89% of genetic mutations that cause disease.

Hu, contributor to Slate, joins us for those strangers watching your stories. Learn more about your ad-choices at https://news.iheart.com/podcast-advertisers
