This special episode of 1 in 20,000 features  George Estreich, author of ‘Fables and Futures:  Biotechnology, Disability, and the Stories We Tell Ourselves’. In a candid conversation, Estreich discusses the inspiration behind his work, his now teenage daughter Laura, who was diagnosed with Down Syndrome and what he has experienced of disability through her. He also shares his thoughts on how social expectations make people with disabilities vulnerable, and what could be done to protect them.
