Britt Wray by Arden WrayBRITT WRAY is a writer and broadcaster who tells stories about science and its social and ethical entanglements. She is co-host of the BBC podcast Tomorrow’s World, which explores the future of science and technology, and completed a PhD at the University of Copenhagen, where she studied science communication with a focus on synthetic biology. Wray’s first book, called Rise of the Necrofauna: The Science, Ethics and Risks of De-Extinction is about a new scientific movement that aims to “recreate” extinct species as well as help endangered species on the brink (published in October 2017 by Greystone Books in partnership with the David Suzuki Institute). Wray’s narrative productions have been broadcast on several radio shows for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (Ideas, Spark, Radio 3, Think About It), New York Public Radio (Studio 360) and the Radiotopia network podcast Love and Radio. She was invited by the National Film Board of Canada to create a documentary series about personal genomics, and has been a Visiting Scholar at the NYU Arthur L. Carter Institute for Journalism.
