Episode 29 – The Human Gut Microbiome

What do poop transplants, human donuts, and ecosystems have in common? Listen as Dr. Andrea McBeth, co-founder and CEO of Flora Medicine, talks all about all the microbes in a healthy human gut, and also describes some creative ways to treat our guts when things go horribly wrong. Tune in for the scoop on poop.

This talk was recorded at the talk The Microbiome: Fecal Transplant and Microbial Ecology at the Kiggins Theatre in September 2019.


Thanks to Graham Tully and Stephen Perry for sound production.

As always, a final thanks to Jonathan Coulton for the use of his song Mandelbrot Set as our theme music.
