27 – Biology of Sex

This episode of Do We Know Things? examines the things we are often taught about the biology of sex differences. It is definitely a science-nerd episode, but it focuses on biases in research that affect half the population! In particular, I wanted to address the oft repeated lore that ‘female is the default sex.’ I am joined by brilliant biologist and gender studies professor, Dr. Anne Fausto-Sterling, one of my research heros!
