This week on The Moth Radio Hour, an astrophysicist discovers wild parallels in her research and romantic life; a surgeon details his involvement in one of the world’s first-ever hand transplants; and a geneticist is called to testify in a murder case and lays the groundwork for DNA fingerprinting as forensic evidence. Hosted by Moth Radio Hour Producer, Jay Allison.
This is the first of five new episodes of The Moth Radio Hour! Listen to VPR Saturdays at 4 through December 15th for signature Moth stories, told live without notes in front of a live audience.
