BRITT WRAY

BRITT 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 technological future based on the science of today. Britt’s first book – Rise of the Necrofauna: The Science, Ethics and Risks of De-Extinction is about a scientific movement that aims to recreate extinct species (2017, Greystone Books). The New Yorker called it one of their favourite books of 2017. 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 recently invited by the National Film Board of Canada to create a documentary series about personal genomics (her current project) and can soon be seen presenting on CBC’s television show The Nature of Things. She has been a Visiting Scholar at the NYU Arthur L. Carter Institute for Journalism, and is completing a PhD in science communication at the University of Copenhagen.
