It all started with a Twitter conversation. Geek Girl Riot’s Alice Wong and her sestra Maelee Johnson started tweeting about cloning in Siberia, and the topic expanded from there to Jurassic Park as a cautionary tale, their love of Orphan Black, personhood and so much more. Now, they’re bringing the conversation to you. Listen in for their chat about cloning in real life and in SF, representation in movies and shows like Never Let Me Go and Star Trek and Star Wars, and explore themes of family, ethics, and identity.
