Our DNA has the building blocks to our genes and, quite possibly, our place in society. Kathryn Paige Harden is professor of clinical psychology at the University of Texas at Austin, where she is director of the Developmental Behavior Genetics Lab and codirector of the Texas Twin Project. She joins host Krys Boyd to discuss why our genes can foster inequality and suggests interventions we can use to mitigate it. Her book is called “The Genetic Lottery: Why DNA Matters for Social Equality.”
