I really enjoy listening to your podcast. I am learning so much from each episode that I find myself making all kind of excited noises walking with my headphones in the middle of the street. But I do have one remark: GMO plants do produce viable seeds. It is only a myth that they don’t. The technology to make them sterile does exist, but has never been used commercialy.
Thanks very much for this interesting link! We love it when our listeners pay close attention and give us the opportunity to learn something too. We’re going to look into this and we’ll report back in the future. And we’ll be sure to thank YOU for bringing it to our attention!
