Michael Crichton's Jurassic Park may be good science fiction, but it's lousy science-in-fiction. Professor Carl Djerassi, who collaborated in producing the first oral contraceptive, talks about the science-in-fiction genre and how it differs from its implausible, inaccurate counterpart. Djerassi also discusses his new novel, Menachem's Seed, the third volume in his science-in-fiction tetralogy (which includes Cantor's Dilemma, 1989; The Bourbaki Gambit, 1994). In Menachem's Seed, the author explores the scientific and moral issues surrounding in-vitro fertilization. Download and start listening now!
