For the debut episode of Spit, host Baratunde Thurston sits down with two people who are changing the world. One through Art, and one through Science. Join us for an intimate conversation and the unscripted thoughts and opinions of  award-winning recording artist and philanthropist John Legend, and 23andMe Co-Founder and CEO Anne Wojcicki to deconstruct how understanding your human genome can change how we think about ourselves, our sense of belonging and our connection to each other and the world. If we are all 99.5% the same, why do we spend so much time on the 0.5% of differences? How does science prove or disprove the stories we’ve grown up with? How does understanding how much alike we really are bring more empathy and compassion into the world? How we are seeing each other more than ever before? How much can one person make a difference? And what we are all hopeful for… Spit is a new iHeartRadio podcast with 23andMe. Enjoy this episode? Subscribe, rate and review Spit on iTunes. And be sure to tell your friends all about it.
